ioShutter Timelapse in Bristol Harbour

Freia & Helen took the ioShutter to Bristol Harbour for a Time-lapse shoot.

Here’s how they did the shoot…

With very little planning & preparation we gathered the key things we needed…

  • ioShutter N3 cable (Canon fit)
  • Tripod (Manfrotto)
  • Camera (Canon 5D MkII)
  • iPhone 4S (you can use an iPad or iPod Touch instead)

…then we headed for Bristol Harbour to find a good location for our Timelapse. After a wee bit of wandering we found a good spot on Pero’s Bridge and set up the tripod & camera.

Next we connected the ioShutter cable to the iPhone and turned on the ioShutter LITE App (that’s the free one).

We chose the intervalometer setting of: Every 5 secs for 10 mins to trigger the camera’s shutter, and here’s the result:

Next we thought we’d compare the Timelapse option of the LITE App with the PRO (paid for one) and found heaps more functionality, so we set the intervalometer every 1 second for 10 mins and here’s the result:

While the ioShutter was working its magic we hung the phone in the blue bag that comes with it on the tripod and kept an eye on the passing pedestrian traffic to ensure our gear stayed in place!!

It really was as simple as that :0)

With hindsight we made a list of things that should be checked before going out to do Time lapse photography:

  • Ensure your sensor is clean – every little spec of dirt will show up!
  • Remember to install the App before your shoot… otherwise you may get a little frustrated waiting for it to load…
  • Remember to bring the quick release plate (Camera to Tripod attachment)
  • Bring an umbrella if the weather’s not looking too good
  • Set the file quality to JPEG only so you can fit plenty of shots on your card (& for quicker post production)
  • Remember to turn your iPhone to Airplane Mode as this could interrupt your shoot
  • Charge all your batteries before heading out!

How to do POST-PRODUCTION:

We put all the JPEG images from one 10 minute Timelapse shoot into ONE folder on the computer.

Then we used some Time Lapse assembly software to create the movie.

Typing ‘Time Lapse Assembly’ or ‘Time Lapse Assembler’ or ‘Time Lapse Software’ into a search engine will give you a multitude of free & paid for software to choose from and lots of useful websites guiding you through this too.

The one we used to compile our shots was: Time Lapse Assembler (Mac) (free)

Here are the settings used:
Codec: mp4v
Framerate: 30 fps (frames per second)
Dimensions resized to: 1280 or 1024 and scaled proportionally
Quality: High or Normal

Apple’s QuickTime 7 Pro (Mac/PC) (paid) is also highly recommended.

Just for fun, here’s one of the most amazing timelapses that I think has ever been made… something to aspire to!!

Produced by Neil Lucas, narrated by David Attenborough, Executive Producer Michael Gunton for the BBC:
