Stoke Plaza Time Lapse (UrbanLinesNet)

Just another test of the Go Pro HD Hero features. This time it’s the Time Lapse function.

Shot overlooking the Plaza as the sun went down at 2 second intervals. The finished result was a little short (1 minute = 1 second) so I slowed it by 50%. Would have been smoother to shoot at 1 second intervals and render at 30 FPS, but that’s a lesson learned.

One thing to note is that the time lapse shoots at full photo resolution (5MP) rather than at a video resolution (1080p or 720p) so each image is around 2Mb. I would like to see an option to shoot at the lower video resolutions to save card space on longer time lapses, but I expect that I’ll have to just buy more memory.

It does however handle low light a LOT better than video due to using longer exposures. Low light on videos is a weakness of the camera, but not something that most people should be too concerned with.
