Time Lapse


Here is my set up for doing time lapses, nothing special using a canon 400D with a Giga T pro remote that has a time lapse setting.
Its normally set to 10-15 seconds depending on the shape of the print 15 seconds is nice fore tall prints where 5-10 is better for smaller flatter prints.

one other bit of equipment is power i have a old power supply for the 400D which really helps on 7 hours and more prints

well hope this helps out
