My First Time Lapse

Hey everyone,
I am not sure if this is the correct place to put this, but here it goes. This is a time lapse that I made of my trip today from just out side of Philadelphia to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It was taken with my K-X on auto mode and driven by my net book running PK-tether. I took a shot every 10 seconds, then stitched it together via windows movie maker at 10 frames per second. I hope you like.

That was pretty neat. How did you stabilize your camera? I might want to give this a try next time I take a longer road trip.

Well done.

Maybe next time do one driving around a big city. Freeways all look the same after a while. But I did like the brief tunnel sections.

PS - didn't you notice that everyone was driving on the wrong side of the road? Amazing there weren't gazillions of accidents.

hey everyone - thanks for the kind words - I did not do anything special to stabilize the camera - just set it up on my tripod that had one leg on the passenger seat and the other two on the floor of the passenger side. I learned early in the trip that if I too a turn too quick or if I hit the brakes too hard, the camera would take a spill - so during those types of maneuvers, a free hand placed on the leg closest to me did wonders.

Looks great. Never stitched the things together, but am going to look into that.
