Time Lapse with Oly 3000z

I would like to take some night time photos where you see the lights of the car streaking by. I am very new to all this, so if someone could explain how to do this. I realize you need a tripod, but how do I keep the shutter open. Is this possible with a digital camera. I have the Oly 3000z. Any help would be appreciated. Just trying to experiment and learn.

I believe the 300 is the same as the 3030 in flash mode you can choose one of the slow sink modes to accomplish this, I am sure there are other ways to do this as well. You will probrably get some better answers from Barry or the other pros.

How do l find my photos


Hi David if it's a dslr camera the photos can be found by firstly pressing the button with a triangle inside a square box then the left button inside the wheel dial.if you photograph astro shots like myself this wheel is great fun as it can be used as a time lapse function as star pictures have little movement so turning the dial left or right this gives you a terrific effect.it will give you a good idea of how time lapse photography looks too.Great on the screen!Let me know how you get on David please .thanks.maxine

How do I take time laps photos


This comes down to a couple basic things: careful planned and execution of your plan.

  1. Figure out what you what you photo and what the best way to capture the event will be. You're going to want to use a tripod to keep the camera in the same position for the duration of the event.
  2. Figure out how often you need the camera to take a photo. If the event is short like 1 minute, you're going to want to take more photos more frequently than if the event is one hour long.
  3. Position the camera and start taking photos. There is no magic "time lapse" setting on cameras so you're going to have to stick around and press the shutter based on the schedule you worked out.
  4. Grab your favorite movie editing program and edit them all together. Play around with how long you show each photo to control the speed of the time lapse effect.
  5. Export and enjoy!

How to fix olympus fe-340 streak and peaks verticaly when picture taken


Not sure you can fix this, but most of the time the stripes are produced in a dark environment with one or a few bright lights. The streaks start on the bright light. Most of the time if you shoot the picture the streaks are not on the picture.
You could try to switch the camera to the automatic, or perhaps night scene.
If the streaks are there in normal light, I think your camera is defect.

Can I switch a video from time lapse mode after it has been shot?


No. Time-lapse video is recorded at a much lower frequency than regular video. The information between recorded frames is gone.

Imagine taking a picture out of your office window once an hour. You might catch some cars moving and/or people walking, but you won't be able to see what happened between the pictures.

You can go the other way, from a regular video to a time-lapse video by skipping frames. Unfortunately you can't do the opposite without guessing at what happened in between.

Epson 3000Z in "sports" mode


With the telephote lens, I am assuming that the camera is a bit more sensitive to any form of camera shake. My suggestion, when using the telephoto lens, is to manually set the shutter speed to its fastest setting (that, or set it to "sports mode"). Also, experiment with the telephote lens using your tripod. Set the camera up on a table and use the timer so that the camera will snap the image automatically. See if the picture is still blurry. If you don't have a tripod, just place it flat on the table.

Continous burst mode


The Movie Mode takes very low resolution frames and can be re-played frame-by-frame.

Use the Continuous Mode for resolutions 2,048x1,536 or 1,600x1,200 or 640x480 get more details than movie.

For higher frame rates, use 1,600x1,200 and you can get quite good photos.

What are the normal settings for night shots on oly C3030Z. Shall I use flash when I shot on nights? If I set the aperture on F2.8 and the shutter from 2 to 16 sec. I got a lot of pixels on the...


There are ways to deal with this problem. As others have said, your camera appears to be normal. Consider using "dark frame subtraction" to successfully employ long shutter speeds. The technique involves capturing two images using the same exposure time and the same camera temperature. One of the images is your picture. The other (the "dark image") is captured with the lens cap on, or other suitable way to block all light. Then using one of the more sophisticated photo editing applications, "subtract" the "dark image" from your picture. This technique will dramatically reduce the noise, because moist of the noise is deterministic, but is highly dependent on shutter speed and on CCD temperature. Of course you can use flash at night, but only for subjects that are close enough to the camera - not for a subject such as your stjernehimmel 2 photo

TIME LAPSE function


The TIME LAPSE function makes it possible to shoot a sequence of pictures (such as a flower opening) automatically under pre-set conditions. Open the MODE MENU under the CAMERA tab. Use the arrow pad to toggle up to TIME LAPSE and select ON. On this screen you can select the number of shot (2 to 99) and the time interval between each shot (1 min. to 60 min. in 1 min. increments. Press the OK button and the shooting sequence will begin. It is advised to use the AC Adapter C-7AU for longer sequences. This function is not available in the AUTO or MOVIE Modes.
