Canon 7D Timelapse Tests 001-006

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

A series of my first timelapse tests I attempted around my neighborhood this past weekend using the Canon 7D and Yongnuo MC-36b intervalometer.

*No post-work done on any of the pictures; I just used Quicktime Pro to export the original images into a Quicktime movie.

It was cool to learn about the whole process, from setup to shooting to processing. There are some master timelapse folks out there (Joe Simon, Philip Bloom) with some incredible work, please check them out.

Thanks to Jon Connor for posting up the link to an informative Timelapse Tutorial 🙂

Canon 7D Photo Tests

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

So, I finally got my hands on one of these fancy DSLRs that I’ve been drooling over and so far I’ve been pretty amazed at what this camera can do. Coming from the world of video cameras (the Canon GL1 being my last video camera), the amount of settings available can be quite overwhelming, but I’m enjoying the learning process. As an HD video camera, I still have much to learn and will post some test videos/projects soon.

For now, I wanted to share some select pictures I snapped with it in the last several weeks.

These were all taken with “default” settings, either with the included kit lens (28-135mm f/3.5-5.6), a 50mm f/1.8 prime, or my little cousin’s 24-70mm f/2.8L beauty.
