We’ve used DSLRs to get high res stills at set intervals for time lapses for years, but, of course, never in 3D.
For this 3D episode of Blowdown, the explosive demolition series we produce, the crew will use 7Ds for these time lapses – and also for establishing shots of the condemned sports stadium in Salvador, Brazil and, of course, the implosion itself.
Here’s how we’ve brought this system into the third dimension:
1) Splice cable so there are two heads on one intervalometer.
2) Attach heads to timer remote ports on two Canon 7Ds on side-by-side rig.
3) Sync using the one handheld intervalometer.
I’ll provide more details re. our time lapse strategy later: wanted to get this bit up ASAP.
Hope it helps.
