Digital blue time lapse

The problem is that after several hours filming on timelapse the microscope light switches off and no further photos are taken. On exiting the programme the microscope will not restart unless the computer is rebooted. Windows 2000 states that the device is working correctly and all other devices will operate using the usb connection. The time taken for the microscope to stop filming has varied from 2 hours to 24 hours. The problem does not appear to be dependent on temperature since I have left running in a cold room. Will a usb connection 'timeout'?

Depending on the model of your USB, (1.1 or 2.0) it may or may not time out. With a 2.0 speed USB it will not typically tome out until about 30 hours of very high activity use. A 1.1, on the other hand can get to do that a lot. If your USB is a 2.0 get a computer expert to check that it is not malfunctioning. If it is a 1.1, I would suggest getting a USB upgrade.

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!

My moultrie gamespy camera takes a picture every hour instead of just when there is motion. Help

sounds like its programmed for time lapse...reset to default; then set your custom settings not to time lapse every hour.

Canon powershot SD1000 video playback problems

Unfortunately, no. Time-lapse video works by taking fewer frames and then displaying them at normal speed so as to give the impression of time going by faster than in reality. Thus, the camera simply hasn't recorded all the information it would have in normal mode, and there's no way to recreate that information. Think of reading just the first line of every page of a book: you'd get through it quickly, but you'd also miss some things.

Now, if you'd shot in slow-motion, then you could throw out some frames until you got to normal speed.

Make sure that you're not on timelapse, it should be standard to do a regular playback.

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.
