Ever wonder how photographers and moviemakers alike get that perfect video of the sky where the clouds are moving rapidly across? They achieve this detailed picture by using their DSLR camera’s time-lapse function—and you can, too. The built-in intervalometer helps automate the process of capturing a large number of still images over a certain period of time. Once its set, the camera will shoot hundreds of images of the subtly changing landscape that can later be translated into a video that brings movement to static images. Whether it’s star trails, moving clouds, or pedestrians, the results are quite remarkable—and it’s easy to accomplish. Give it a shot!
