We decide to set up our Nikon D-80 on a tripod to make a time lapse video. I have done a bunch of reading, how to’s and what not regarding time lapse with a Nikon. Just hook it up to a computer, in our case a Mac Book Pro use Nikons Camera control software. The software has time lapse feature built right with every setting you would need to adjust.

We setup the camera to take a picture every 5 seconds, then into Quicktime Pro at 15 frames per second.

Anyways check it out, I think it’s really neat and will be making more videos in the future.

What was the real time spent putting on the finish?

Now if I could really work that fast, maybe – just maybe – I could actually get a project or two finished.

I did’t actually time how long it takes to put the finish on, but I think about 10 minutes to brush is on let it soak in for 30 minutes and wipe all off about 20 minutes.

I cut some frames out that were of just the chair sitting with finish to shorten up the clip

Always enjoy time lapse movies. The hardest part is keeping the camera in one spot over a long period.

Thanks, this was kinda a quick and dirty test of how to make a time lapse, there will be more in all your futures. LOL

Very happy with the results, especially because I was going to get a video camera to do this. Instead I used the ole internet to teach this young dog a new trick.

very nice demo of the timelapse function of a D80. After looking at the 600 page instruction manual I went with a Nikon L1011. It will do stop action but not timelapse.

Great video, and beautiful Maloof style rocker too!
