Weekly Timelapse Fun

Some more timelapse views outside my office window this past week… I’ve done this before.

May 3rd. About 1/3 of the way into this, a storm sweeps through and you can see the clouds speed up and change direction quickly (camera speed remained constant).

May 4th. Birth of white fluffy clouds.

May 5th. Consistently grey texture all day.

Timelapse Fun

In preparation for our Italy Trip, I just bought a new camera, a Nikon Coolpix P4.

I’m liking it so far, and one of the cool geeky features is the ability to do a timelapse movie. It will take a picture every 30 seconds (or longer, unfortunately not very configurable) and then stitch them all together into a QuickTime movie. It shuts off the display between shots to save battery life, as well.

A fully charged battery is lasting about 5 hours in this mode.

I pointed the camera out my office window on April 21st.
