Timelapses

The movies on this page were made using a Canon EOS camera (most of them with a Rebel XT), a Canon 10-22mm and a device to trigger the camera at a given interval. I have used the Super Timelapse Maker 2000 Plus, the TimeLapseTron v2 (Solid State Edition) and the Timelapse-o-Matic. You can learn more about these devices and the techniques used at patenteux.com.

You will need Quicktime (because it's popular) or XviD (because it's open source) to view these movies.

Some movies are also available in HD format. I chose MP4 because the PlayStation® 3 can play them at full resolution.
