Post Timelapse Photography - Is my Camera Sufficient?
Hi All,

Im new to this board andf new too timelapse photography!!

Ive had my camera fort 6 months and can get some cracking photos, but havent indulged in time-lapse photography, something im pretty keen on.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix S9500, but not sure how sufficient it is for time-lapse photography like some DSLR,s and just wondered if anyone could give me any advise on how to go about it?

My first attempt will probably be sunset ( recently moved to Lima, Peru from Scotland) and with summer coming up im going to have some great opertunities to do this.

I have no idea how to go about it, how long the photo intervals should be, how long they would it last when i put a video together, additional equipment i should consider?

Any help would be really appreciated :-)

Davie

It appears the S9500 does have an oddball external shutter jack so yes you can use it for timelapse. Here's an interval timer to try: http://cgi.ebay.com/Timer-Remote-Fujifi ... 5195bd3262

Maybe hit up the ultimate FAQ as well ;) : http://timescapes.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=1871&f=6

Davie, looking through the various threads on here is a good place to start after reading the Ultimate FAQ. There is a lot of useful information all over the site.

Milapse, im just wondering about the link for the remote timer:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Timer-Remote-Fujifi ... 5195bd3262

My camera manual doesnt say anything about this at all, would i just connect it via the USB and fire away, or do i need some kind of firmware to run it?

Cheers

Davie
