General Chat / Amazing new site to submit your films to
« on: November 01, 2015, 11:37:26 AM »
Has anyone seen this new site yet?

I've been binging on it lately, there's hundreds of shorts to watch on there and they all have little mini-trailers which is pretty cool. It just makes finding shorts so much simpler than trawling through YouTube or Vimeo.

I find it really inspiring for my own films. Thoughts?

General Chat / 5 Week Time Lapse
« on: November 11, 2012, 05:50:26 PM »
I've been asked by a friend to record a time lapse for an office refurbishment from start to finish for the company he works for. The refurb will take 5 weeks so the camera will be set up in the same position for the entire time, but it will only be capturing for 9 hours a day, 5 days a week.

I will be using a 60d with ML's intervalometer.  The camera will be plugged in to the mains for the 9 hours of shooting and I was looking at an ACK-E6 to do this.  I have seen the official canon one on ebay for £167, but there are also aftermarket solutions for as little as £15. 

So I have three questions:

Will the camera be safe if I leave it plugged in to the mains for 9 hours a day, taking a shot every 2 minutes?

Has anyone had any experience with aftermarket ACK-E6's or strongly advice against them?

I have no idea what to charge for this, so does anyone know what the going rate should be?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
