Dear all,

I have recently been asked to shoot a time laps sequence as part of a "making of" documentary using a Z1. Essentially I will be filming a set being built over a couple of days. I understand that the Z1 does not facilitate for shooting time laps sequences as there is no variable frame rate or shutter angle. My plan was to literally shoot the sequence in real time then get the editor to de-interlace the footage in post and speed it up there.

The footage will not be broadcasted but simply used in house, and perhaps on a website.

my question?

1. Has any one used a Z1 to shoot a time laps sequence before, and if so how did they find it?

2. Is there any tricks I could adopt to save my self literally shooting over 10 hours of footage?

3. What are the potential problems the editor could face in post, if any?

I appreciate your time and responses,

Regards

Adrian
