Timelaps with Silent Picture question
« on: June 29, 2013, 09:08:24 PM »
Hello!

I wanna shoot a timelaps with my 5dmk3.
It would be ok for me to shoot in 1920x1080 silent picture mode with intervalometer;)
Now i have some question and perhaps someone can help me??

1 is it possible to turn off the live view when shooting with silent pictures to treat battery with care and shoot longer.

2 is it possible to change resolution (but i dont want to crop the picture..)

3 is it better to shoot with intervallometer or better to shoot with fps overwrite?

4 if fps overwrite is better how should i set the options for day to night timelaps..

5 how can i get a 6h shoot with the camera with 2 batteries? Is there a better power supply available? I have the 2batteries adapter..

Thx rene

1. LV can't be turned off during capturing a silent pic.
...
5. I did build out of an old battery a battery-dummy for 550D to supply external power.
(If I had a 5D3 I would rather buy a external power supply.)

1.  Prefs menu in ML.  Powersave in liveview.
2.  Not in ML.  Pretty easy to batch resize in many different programs though.
3.  Intervalometer unless you want really small intervals.
4.  You only need to use fps override if you want small intervals (using video recording).  I just did a quick test, and it looks like silent pic is fine with intervals of 2 seconds or greater.
5.  Turn off global draw.  Longer intervals.  Turn off LCD with powersave.  If you need more power you can get an external power supply.
