Off Yonder – Adventure Travel Stories - Seeing the world for what it is

Five Fingers Time Lapse
Adventure Unlimited Ranches, Buena Vista, Colorado, United States

While at Christmas camp, I set up my camera to take 30 second exposures for as long as the battery would last. Then I put another battery in and kept going. You’ll see the frame shift now and then, that’s probably a new battery going in. It’s not the most exciting video you’ve seen, but then again, this is my experimentation laboratory. Welcome to it. I’ll try to get a better one another time. Stay tuned.

    Awesome. But I don’t understand how it captured shooting stars on thirty second exposures. Shouldn’t they be appearing only as a streak across the whole fram and for only one shot? They look as if they’re moving, which to me means they must be on several “pages” of the digital flipbook. Is that an optical illusion?

      It might be they are shooting stars or maybe airplanes that take more than 30 seconds to cross the frame. Though that is kinda the cool thing about the time lapse is even if it's just a streak in the sky it will look like it's moving. An optical illusion as you suspected.
