I am looking to do time-lapses. A friend did one, and really wanting to get into it. Was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for any Intervalometers? Also, how do I adjust the exposure as time goes on? That is another thing that I do not understand.

I have one of the cheap chinese ones, which works fine. I don't adjust the exposure during the session; it's either set for auto exposure, or a fixed manually-set exposure.

Magic lantern is a bit of software you run off your memory card that includes the ability to do timelapses and and exposure ramping.
It's also free!

I have magic lantern, but I do not like it very much.

The ShutterBoss is, IMO, the best intervalometer available. They also have a cheaper wired version ($50 or so).

Very easy to use. The buttons are easily located once you're familiar with the remote. Good solid feel to them. The user interface is also easy to learn/use quickly. Much better than any Canon or Canon knock-off.

Looks like I will be getting the Shutterboss. Thank you guys! Does anyone know of any threads of time-lapses?

I found the Shutterboss for 25 dollars cheaper on Amazon, My next purchase is about to happen in 2 minutes.

I believe that sale ends today. Not sure why BH has it listed at full price right now. I got mine from Amazon for the same price. Well worth it! :D

+1; I just got a second one at the sale price (since one transmitter will trigger multiple receivers, I want to be able to use that capability as well).

I bought a Shutterboss a couple of weeks ago and have been using it for some product shots. It works quite well for when the camera and tripod is further away than my wired remote can reach and I have to rearrange things as I am shooting. However, I just spent a few days in Monterey and was taking pictures of the waves crashing on the rocks. I used to shoot in high speed mode to get just the right splash, but apparently the Shutterboss doesn’t work this way on the 5D Mk III. It only seems to do its own multiexposure mode, taking an exposure once per second - way to slow for wave action. Unless I am doing something wrong, this takes it from a five star product to a two or three star for me.


I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
