|The old trusty workhorse Canon 7D on time lapse duty|
V8 Supercar Transporter Covoy leaves Darwin city
I decided I'd give a quick time lapse of the procession a shot since I'd been trying to find a good location for some other projects in planning.
Now that I have the 5D MKIII as my primary stills camera I have been able to put the 7D to good use as a dedicated video and time lapse rig, which incidentally, is so much more fun than having to constantly switch configurations with a single DSLR.
Since I only need this output at 1280 x 720 I shot all frames at the 7D's small jpeg size of 2592 x 1728 @ 1 fps and resized the resulting sequence in After Effects with faux tilt shift. This resolution is more than enough and still allows for pans to add movement to your video ( see below ).
