[ALREADY DONE] Timelapse Calculator
« on: April 04, 2013, 07:03:35 AM »
It would be nice to have a calculator for time-lapses. I can calculate it on my phone, but it would be nice if was on the camera.

e.g. If I want a 2 minute video, PAL 25 frames per second, of a 2 & half hour sunset how many images and at what interval would I need. e.g. If I wanted a 3x bracketed images for an HDR time-lapse? I could multiply it by 3 but a basic calculator would be real handy

This could be done with a script. Sounds like a good project to start with scripting...

Did you try to enable the intervalometer? there's one right in the ML menu...

It certainly is sir  ::)

I never realized it changed when input values were changed  :-[

Thank you.
