Here’s a good tutorial that I used to make this egg-timer thing that does panning time-lapse movies.
Egg-timer motors are pretty cheap. I broke one as I drove off to test it out and had to go back to the store go get another timer but it was the same make so all the bits fit together. I’ll have to stock up on a few.
I can’t tilt it without the engine stopping, the wee plastic cogs just cant take all the extra weight I figure. I doubt I’ll be able to put it anywhere too windy or attach it to anything shaking like a vehicle, but it’ll do the trick when it comes to shooting static landscapes.
Here’s a couple of short clips I shot this afternoon.
