Another time-lapse; from holidays in Cornwall

Recommended Posts

I've had a few clear nights recently and had to miss them all so have been able to turn to some earlier data. I've put together a series of timelapses from my annual weekly holiday with my in-laws in Cornwall every April at Gillan Creek near the Helford River on the Lizard in Cornwall.

The very first time-lapse starts off with a 3/4 moon behind the camera and the Milky Way rising, as the Moon drops then sets the ground gets darker and the Milky Way more obvious. Two of the time-lapses were done in daytime showing the tide coming up on Gillan Cove. The people visible in both of these are mostly family :)

The area has many scenic spots I would love to time-lapse from but as you'll all know too well getting the tides, the Moon and the weather all right at the same time is quite rare!

The time-lapse was exported at 4K resolution - if you have a good fast internet connection then that will be best, otherwise 1080p (HD) works well.

Equipment used: Canon 6D, 14mm Samyang lens and 24-105mm Sigma Lens
Motion is provided by a Vixen Polarie with time-lapse adaptor and/or a Digislider motorised slider

The background track is "Billions and Billions: from A Moment of Stillness" by Stellardrone (stellardrone.bandcamp.com)

 

Hope you enjoy..

James

That's brilliant!  What frame rate did you shoot at?  I have an observatory build coming up and was thinking of doing a timelapse for that.

24 fps - the bigger question will be what interval to use for your timelapse - i.e. how far apart the images. An observatory build would be a nice one to do :)

Brilliant timelapse as always James, I watched that a few times  - really enjoyed it.  Can I ask what you use to pan your camera ?

 

thanks

Mark

...in fact, that's exactly what I meant when I asked what rate you shot at.  I suppose it's just a question of squeezing it all into the time that you want the final movie to run.

Outstanding, I watched it 3 times. What did you use for the motion shots? did you just move the camera between frames or did you have a track?

Thank you :) For some I used a Vixen Polarie with a timelapse adaptor on just mounted onto a tripod which allows for panning, with one or two of them I also used a motorised slider as well. I haven't yet got the means for easy up and down motion, that's next on the list..

Fantastic collection of timelapses there James.  I ought to give that a try some time.

I had a holiday at Gillan Creek two years back and the viewing from that beach was superb - I shot a few milky way photos and watched a flaming orange waning crescent moon rise from the open sea in the gap out of the mouth of the creek, but didn't try any timelapses.  Also caught a lovely mackerel off that tiny peninsula on the right.

      I just try to show the beauty of the night sky, and again the possibilities with a smartphone. There are already better applications at the google play to make the night lapse easy. At first I used the Gif maker pro. It's a good app to edit the frames, before creating video, but you can't save the videos in good quality. Now I use the TimeLab app (same developer, as Intervalometer app), in the editing it has not so many options, but with this app you can save the videos in 4K too, or full HD. This video is 360 frames (each 30 sec exposition at ISO 800) Huawei P10 monochrome camera, Intervalometer app, TimeLab app. Pictures taken in Kleinwalsertal, Austria 2019. 09. 23-24.  (The video is full HD, I don't know, why, but it doesn't run continuesly on my PC, when I watch that back on SGL. I hope, on your monitors you can enjoy it!)
