11-hour Time-lapse with GoPro and LimeFuel Epic

I had a busy January so my posts have been non-existent this far this year. That’s not to say that I haven’t been busy with photography – I have. Here’s a short post which follows-up my first long time-lapse test last year with the GoPro Hero 4 Silver and the external battery Epic L40G4. This first test I achieved just under 10 hours but the time-lapse ended prematurely due to the microSD card filling up…   :-P

This time, a little longer – as the title of the post suggests, 11 hours of continuous time-lapse with an entirely self-contained (watertight) system – not too shabby at all.

Shooting Details :

GoPro Hero 4 Silver with full internal battery plus LimeFuel Epic L40G4 Battery

– Protunes ON

If you watch the video in HD on youTube you will see the time displayed in the lower left of the frame for each image.

Video on DSLR

I’m doing a bit of volunteer video duty this weekend for the 150th anniversary celebrations of the school in our village of Le Pâquier. Committee president (and friend) Frédérique Moratel-Revaz opens the festivities (below photo).

I don’t do a lot a video work, but I’m always happy to do some experimenting to see what I can produce with my DSLR equipment.

If you see the f/stop I’m using in this photo then you’ll that I should have brought along an ND filter… it was way too bright, even at ISO 64 on the D810.  :-/   The sequences turned out fine, though. Tomorrow I’ll be faced with exactly the opposite conditions… a small, dark room, moving actors and very little space to get around.

I’ll have a follow-up post to this one shortly, including some sample footage.
