Exploring time-lapse films with the Fujifilm X-E1, by David Cleland at FlixelPix.com

David grabs a no-name intervalometer and wanders into the night:

"In conclusion I am at the bottom of a steep learning curve but I was impressed at the performance of the X-E1 and want to explore the technique further. I realise I have to be aware of battery live so kept a battery on charge for quick change over. Initially I thought changing the battery would ruin the lapse as the camera would change position but I have decided that the camera sitting in a single stationary position isn’t interesting.

I think I have the post production side of things covered so the next step is to master the capture process and then it is time to find some interesting locations to do a proper testing. If you have explored this technique and have any tips please post away in the comments, all advice would be greatly . . . read more

All night long time-lapse photos of sleeping couples: Paul Schneggenburger's project, 'The Sleep Of The Beloved'.

“What happens to lovers while they are sleeping?”

This is the question photographer Paul Schneggenburger asked as he began his project “The sleep of the beloved.” Using the second room of his two-bedroom Vienna apartment as a studio, he set up black sheets on a mattress, lit by a string of Christmas tree lights.

Schneggenburger was not in the room during the exposures. “I’m fascinated by sleep,” the German-born photographer said. “What’s going on in the body; what’s going on in the mind?” . . . read more

Building a sooth and portable video or time-lapse Dolly for cheap, from scraps, by Patrick Luke at DIY Photography.

I don't think this is portable in the sense of folding it and putting it in a bag, but those hi-tech material ultra light Dollies costs anything upstream of $350.

"The video dolly, allows the camera to be moved laterally in a smooth motion. Currently the options are between cheap dollies that do not deliver and high end dollies that cost an arm and a leg. This is the gap that this tutorial fills.The video dolly consists of two parts: a track and a carriage. My design came from seeing a photo of the underside of a similar carriage that was built for a totally different use. The rest of it resulted after building and rebuilding it in my head and on paper until the kinks were worked out. . . . read more

Sony releases Time-lapse and Cinemagraph PlayMemory camera apps for the NEX-6 and NEX-5R.

Both apps provide a 'first ever' for a Sony camera, and especially the 'Cinema-Photo' Cinemagraph app should be a first in any camera ever.
