Sample movie filmed with the Panasonic Lumix GH4 fitted with the Olympus 17mm f1.8 using its Timelapse mode. I first set the white balance to daylight and locked the focus to avoid either drifting during the sequence. I then set the camera to take a photo in Aperture Priority at f4, 200 ISO every 5 seconds for 819 frames, so you're looking at about 68 minutes worth of images. The camera worked out the shutter speed using multiple metering, which started at 1/1600 and ended at 1.3 seconds. I then used the GH4 to generate a timelapse movie at UHD / 30fps in-camera. Note the option to create a timelapse video in-camera is not available if the system frequency is set to 24Hz.

This video is part of my GH4 review at Camera Labs. You can find it at:

PS - this timelapse was captured at the Top of the Rock observatory at the Rockerfeller Center, New York. The guards seem quite happy for you to do timelapse shots, but there's no room for a tripod, so you should use a smaller support like a Gorillapod. My setup for this sequence is shown at
