How do I make a Time Lapse with my XPRO2 / 2+ camera ?

 

  • Introduction 

 

          Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which frames are captured is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. Here is an example made with the XPRO2 shot in 1080p with a frequency of 1 frame per second.
