How I Use Time Lapse On My Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G80
One of my favorite functions, amongst many, of the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G80 is the Time Lapse. It’s probably the feature I use the most when I’m out on adventures on my own and want to create a photo with myself in it.
You can use Time Lapse in two ways as I see it. Either you make a movie like this.
But with Time Lapse you can also single out a photo that you really like, and this is actually how I make use of this function the most.
The settings I use varies depending on what activity I’m capturing. High speed activity often means high shutter speed with a shooting interval as fast as 1 photo / sec in Time Lapse setting.
Another variable to have in mind is the distance between the camera and the focal point. Far away means you don’t need the setting to be at 1 photo / sec even though the activity is at high speed. Lowering the shutter speed means more freedom to play with other camera settings, and with some distance even fast moving objects will turn out sharp.
