Post Newbie Time-Lapse - Lots of mistake!
Well, following there is my first TEST of Time-Lapse.

Done without any sort of knowledge about it, and worst thing, without knowing this forum :oops:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/truesidewinder/5001693186/

I've read this tread today: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=1871 and learn enough but could you give a list of mistake of this video?

I've found these mistakes:
- WB (set to auto, ok for daylight but when sun goes down ... :roll: )
- AutoFocus (no comment :lol: )
- Images resize and poor quality (why?)
- 5secs gap between shots (enough for daylight, non enought after sunset

Other things?

Thanks in advance!

You seem to have most of the bigger problems answered. I would go out and give it another go using the tips you have picked up from Milapses thread, then let us have a look. I would avoid the Day/Night transitions for the moment as they are particularly difficult to achieve good results with.

If you have any Neutral Density filters at hand, they can help to give you more control over shutter speed and aperture. I tend to prefer a longer shutter speed somewhere in the seconds range. So if my interval is 4 seconds I might use a 2 or 3.2 second exposure for example. That will help to reduce any flicker and give you a nice bit of motion blur to smooth things out.

Good luck on your next attempt.

one thing I have found with shooting jpegs - the longer exposures were smaller and I could fit more shots onto a card.
