On my short flight from Doha to Dubai - I took the chance to test my new GoPro Hero2 setup for inflight timelapse. So I set up the cam to take a photo every 2 seconds, switched the spot meter function to ‘ON’ and put the camera in position. I also used the extra battery pack, altough it wasn’t really necessary for this short trip.
Doing the math: The flight is around 60minutes – taking a picture every 2 seconds results in 30pics per minute. Means 1 minute realtime flight is around 1 sec of my clip footage (I used 25fps). The final clip consists of more than 2000 single photos, as we have the start and landing included.
Some editing, color grading and music later, here’s the outcome.
