CHDK is Cool!

So, while debating the intervalometer cost implications for my SLR – I decided to give the Canon CHDK a run for its money.  After downloading the CHDK for the A590 and making sure it didn’t break the camera I went out in search of an intervalometer script.  I think it’s a VB script, but can’t be sure…nevertheless the results were kind of fun!

I tried to include as much info in the teaser as possible, but if anyone has questions on how I did all this, feel free to share your questions (or feedback if you prefer) in the comments or vial email!  Here’s a dry run of my daily commute home (if only the real time commute went that fast!):


Happy shooting!  If you have your own time lapse productions, feel free to link them in the comments too!  See you back here again tomorrow… 🙂

    I use the Canon TC-80N3 which I have owned for years, with either a EOS 5D Mk II or 50D. You can see an example on my blog

    – best to click through to Youtube as the embedded movies are cropped for some reason.

    Compiling the still frames is relatively easy with Photoshop™. I then edit with iMovie. Don’t forget to record a separate sound track as this will add both realism and depth to your movie.

      That’s what I am looking at – either the TC-80N3 or the Optek (generic) equivalent for like half the price….

    Very cool Jason! Have you seen the video “The Sandpit?”

    I’m toying with making miniatures now, inspired by The Sandpit.
