Things To Do While Your Rolleiflex Is Away Being Repaired #3
Make New Stuff With Your Old Stuff
I’ve been playing around with some time lapse stuff lately and all the good looking videos use a movement thing with them…
So I thought “I have lots of photo stuff, I wonder if I can make my own”
Hence the creation below. Its my own custom time lapse movement device. Its made from Tripod, Macro rail, monopod head and a super clamp for a counter balance.
It has a handle in the back that you have to turn manually and its a little jerky but with a bit of practice it might be cool 🙂 The F5 was there because I needed my D90 to shoot this shot.
See below for test video
Nikon D90, Sigma 12-24mm Lens.
Hey Simon, You Nikon owners are lucky. I’ve got to buy an additional piece of kit to experiment with timelapse on a Canon! Will hopefully have a go in a few weeks once I’ve bought it.

Not so lucky the D90 doesn’t have a built in Interval timer(D7000 does have one). Had to buy one from work 😦
