It is really interesting, I wonder what this tatsujin program is, as there is no reference to it on the Internet.

I have a panasonic TZ7/ZS3 and I have made time-lapse videos using the camera in continuous shooting mode and then pressing the shutter with a bolt fastened to the body of the camera with an elastic band.

Here is the resulting video:

Yeah there is no reference and im having trouble even finding a developer that made it, i've heard of physically depressing the button during continous shooting mode. I havent tried it but here is a pretty badly edited video used in conjunction with that software and an old laptop.

Hi, i'm the author of this blog and i'm currently trying to clean it up, didn't have much time lastly.

You can find the program easily by searching the term "tatsujin panasonic" on google.
I would host the program myself, but i'm not sure if i'm legally allow to.

The question is: is there still any interest in this, or should i just delete the post?
I managed to do several timelapses with this method up to 9MP quality, which is kinda crazy btw.

Please respond, thanks.

There is a neat programme for most of the Canon p&s cameras called CHDK which loads from the memory card without modifying the on-board firmware. Depending on the model you can get ridiculously high shutter speeds, like 1/100,000 of a second (that isn't a typo), a number of time lapse options and numerous other enhancements.

I actually did a timelapse with my TZ5 in fall 2008. It was done quite spontaneous without any real planing or preparation. The first day I saw them building up the food-stands, the next morning I planed to back to cafe glacier and take those pictures. The result is quite crappy from a technical standpoint, but for me the making and the result was so very exhilarating.

Sorry to warm up an old thread, but I'd really love to do timelapses with my TZ 5.

@digitalscissors: If you still have that post somewhere, I'd be happy if you could send it to me. I don't care if it's messy :-) Thank you!
