Exploring Time-Lapse Photography

You can use the Interval Timer Photography option on the Shooting menu to automatically record a series of still photos over a period of time — a process known as time-lapse photography. Through a related menu option, Time-Lapse Photography, you can shoot a series of movie frames over time and then combine them to create a silent time-lapse movie. The next two sections explain how to use these features.

Shooting time-lapse photos

To use the Interval Timer Photography feature, which captures still time-lapse photos, take these steps:

  1. Set the Release mode to any setting but Self-Timer, Remote Control, or Mirror Up (Mup).

    Those modes aren't compatible with interval-timing shooting.

  2. Display the Shooting menu, highlight Interval Timer Shooting, as shown on the left in Figure 11-23, and press OK.

    The screen on the right in Figure 11-23 appears.

  3. To begin setting up your capture session, highlight Now or Start Time.
    • If you want to start the captures right away, highlight Now.
    • To set a later start time for the captures, highlight Start Time.
  4. Press the Multi Selector right to display the capture-setup screen.

    If you selected Start Time in Step 3, the screen looks like the one in Figure 11-24. If you selected Now, the Start Time option is dimmed, and the Interval option is highlighted instead.
