Hey everyone,

Obviously tonight is the meteor shower start around 3am here (but I'll be out there sooner and will start shooting on the first sight of a meteor). I am wondering how many images per minute/hour would be sufficient for a time lapse video? Should I just keep the camera shooting continuously every 30 seconds (or 25 seconds) of exposure?

Also, if I'm shooting every 30 seconds, how successful will I be with a 32gb card (class 10) in my t3i, an 8gb card (class 10) in my t2i and X3 1GB cards in my 5D classic (20mb/sec)


Bodies: Canon 5D3 - Canon 1D4
Lenses: Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM SPORTS - Canon 100mm F2.8 L - Canon 70-200mm F2.8 L - - Canon 85mm F1.2 L V2 - Canon 40mm F2.8 Pancake
Extras: 2 Neewer TT520 Speedlites - Manfrotto 3021BPRO and ballhead
