1 Clip is Cumulus

I managed to capture this time lapse the other day on my quest to film what I call "Toy Story" clouds.  While I believe I got the right conditions, the interval of 1 second between shots seemed too long considering how fast the clouds were moving.  I plan on taking advantage of Magic Lantern's FPS override feature next time to try to get a much more slower, fluid, dreamy like movement.  The only downside is that I will lose the RAW imaging flexibility I get from doing stills.  We'll have to see how far my ND filters and polarizers can balance things.

You can preview and download the clip by clicking "read more" below.  Happy Downloading!

Cumulus clouds rush past the screen an an otherwise sunny day.

  1. Great footage! Having trouble downloading, though, it will not let me download a video file.

    1. Thanks for the comment. I just tried and was able to download. Have you tried right clicking on the link (or ctrl click for macs) to bring up a small window that will allow you to "save as" or "save target as" or "save link as". If the link is clicked normally, your computer may try to download and open the file WITHIN your browser. Let me know if you are still having issues. Thanks!
