| p.1 #7 · really dumb question: d800 (or other nikon) timelapse mode |
I think you misunderstand timelapse. The camera has an intervalometer which lets you take picture at prescribed time intervals (for example... 600 pictures at 1 pictures per 5 seconds). It generates pictures files.
It does not automatically make timelapse clips (you take the images to software to do that).
Unless......... this was a feature I wasn't informed of?
The latest Nikon cameras offer both options... you can use the intervalometer to shoot a sequence of full-resolution NEF or JPG files and then process the files and assemble them into a timelapse sequence using the software of your choice (I like the LRTimelapse plugin for LightRoom), or you can use the camera's built-in timelape feature to shoot lower-resolution video in-camera, using the JPG picture control settings.
The drawbacks to using the built-in timelapse feature are the lower resolution and inability to access or process the files, but it takes up a lot less memory than shooting full-res files.
