This tutorial is about what causes DSLR timelapse flicker and what we can do to minimize it. Here's a quick overview:
1. Most common source: Automatic settings
- Overcome by shooting in full manual mode
2. Secondary mechanical source: Aperture flicker
- Shoot at low f-stops (wider apertures = less exposure variations)
- Use a manual lens
- Trick your camera into thinking your automatic lens is manual (lens twist)
3. Secondary mechanical source: Shutter flicker
- Shoot at slow speeds ( under 1/100th of a second)
4. Utilizing priority modes for scenes with changing light
- We will get flicker but we can correct with deflickering software
- Cover your eyepiece
- Bulb ramping
Hope this was helpful. Let me know if you have other tips or experiences.
