1. Here is a quick tutorial which shows the basics on setting up your GoPro to take timelapse shots at certain intervals, and how to edit them using a Mac. While we use Final Cut Pro for our editing, you can easily do the full edit of the timelapse simply by using QuickTime Pro.

    Side note: we flipped the video 180-degrees in this video using FCP, but you can actually do that in QuickTime as well, using the "Movie Properties" window.

  3. We really enjoyed our trip to Seoul. This wonderful buzzing city is just awesome and really worth a stay.
    Shooting some time lapses was a great way to explore this urban scene.

    We used:

    1x Pentax k-5
    2x Pentax k-7
    3x GoPro Hero

    Samyang 8mm/3.5
    Tamron 17-50mm/2.8
    Sigma 17-70mm/2.8-4.5
    Pentax 35 mm/2.8
    Pentax 50 mm/1.7
    Pentax 50-135mm/2.8

    We produced a bunch of images. Even more than I expected and so we bought some more hard drives to bring all this files back home safely.

    38.000 pictures
    390 GB of Data

    For post production I used Lightroom an the wonderful LRTimelapse (lrtimelapse.com/)by Gunther Wegner

    Cinevate Atlas 10 Review:

    We received the Atlas 10 with vertical pully/slider just before this event so this was our first run with it. As such we brought our trusty Atlas 30 just incase we weren't happy with the results. Nothing to worry about, before the night was over we packed away the Atlas 30 and kept the 10 by our side.

    Our first impressions of the Atlas 10 were "wow this thing is built like a tank" and no kidding it really is. Upon opening the box this slider says "I was made for professional use". It is finely crafted and fits in line with Cinevate's stellar reputation.

    For those of you familiar with the Atlas 30, the slide of the 10 is smooth, but not as smooth. The 10 requires a slight constant push, whereas the 30 glides along effortlessly. The 10 also has enclosed rails which keep them from possibly being dinged, which meant we could treat the 10 a bit more carelessly than we do the 30. However this ruggedness comes at a price of weight which is a downside after being already weighed down with tripods and loads of other cinematography equipment for gorilla filmmaking. Since we had the ATL legs, adding a strap was easy and essential for managing the additional weight. The ability to add a quick release plate at the end and middle meant no longer packing c-stands for the Atlas 30, which was nice since we always had a tripod nearby.

    The vertical system was really smooth. Although the 10 can be used without the pulleys, I feel the leverage they give does a better job than pushing the camera up itself. Cinevate supplies the vertical system with a counter balancing box that you can fill up with bolts, rocks or whatever. Although we did test it out with amazing results, we choose not to bring the counter balance simply because it doesn't work for this type of shooting. If we were in a controlled environment you bet it would be used! Having the vertical option gave us a new look that we took advantage of. Ring shots, dress shots, foreground shots all got another possible perspective thanks to the vertical system.

    To sum up this review I feel the Atlas 10 has a home among studio shooters, and field shooters who need the additional durability, however for most event based DSLR shooters Cinevate has a lighter version of the 10 called the FLT. The FLT can be set up as a dual vertical slider like the 10, and because of the weight loss on the FLT model I think it will be greatly favored over the more rugged version. As for the pulley system, I highly recommend adding the vertical pulley, just keep an eye on the slack in the line when using horizontally. At the price of these sliders its hard to imagine a local event based studio without one.
