A friend of mine and I are planning a Los Angeles-San Francisco road trip along the scenic Pacific Coast Highway. We want to timelapse the trip and both own a Bolex H16 and K-3. Would anyone have any information on intervalometer rentals for these 2 cameras? Does anyone own one we could use/rent from you?

Any info would be much appreciated.

Why rent when you can own?
http://www.intervalometers.com

Many rental places charge $100/day or $300/week.
And then you have to deal with pickup/drop-off annoyances. :rolleyes:

With a TimeFlow Intervalometer, there's no battery pack to deal with, no complicated installation, just reliable filming. Just make sure to attach it firmly to the car body or roof. Otherwise, your footage will be all jumpy. Oh, and you wouldn't want it to fly off either. That would be bad.

If you have a choice of camera, the Bolex is better, because you can shoot with longish exposures and give the footage a racy blur to it. In any case, I would recommend shooting with a shorter interval (1-4 seconds or so) then editing it together. Cross-country (or even cross-state) time-lapses with evenly-spaces exposures tend to turn out disjointed and dizzying.
