    Dealing with technology some days is just like people who explored the west centuries ago. YOu start off on a path that looks good, then encounter an obstacle. Sometimes you can get around it, sometimes you have to go back and start a new path. We've been dealing with that on Beach Walks eh? New software, breaks old paths. Some people have old version, some have new version. Not all upgrades are "backwards compatible." Sometimes files have to be re-encoded. Mahalo nui for being side by side adventurers with us! Hawaiian word: ʻImi loa: explore

      We try out a couple of methods to see why one of the pages seems to shift including using the measure tool in Firefox to compare the sizes of the pages.  Finally, it appeared that it has something to do with the time code embedded in the page next to the calendar.  So to fix the problem, Venu needs to explore the code around that element.

            • Nikon, Time Lapse & Flickering PT1

              Recently I have got into time-lapse photography thanks to Philip Bloom and his beautiful and inspiring offerings over the last few years. I know there are others, but Philips films are the ones that inspired me as it was approached in a way I could relate to being a career television camera operator here in the UK. This video is an archive of some of the first time lapses I did and shows some of the major difficulties I had using budget equipment. All I had access to was a cheap tripod, a Nikon D5000, and a kit lens (Nikor DX AF-S 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6 G ED VR) After figuring out the main basics of time-lapse like doing it in manual mode, using manual WB, locking iso settings, turning off all digital gimmicks and turning off auto focus, I noticed the time lapses I did were still randomly flickering. I had a problem known as aperture flicker. Most DSLRs with kit lenses suffer from this and it is due to the camera resetting its electronic aperture controls every single time your camera takes a shot. So, that means if your f-stop is f16 on a day light time lapse of 999 photos, your camera is selecting f16 and then moving to wide open (f3.5 in my case) 999 times during the time lapse. Unfortunately, it doesn’t get it right all the time and that is what causes the flickering. Note the first few examples in the video. I believe on Canons there is a work around that seems very easy to understand (Google it) but for Nikon users this work around was not possible due to a different mechanical make up of the body and lens. I know there are many ways to get over this but remember I’m not jobbing with this footage so was not going to spend any money. No software or extra posh lenses, yet. Plus, I like a challenge. To get around this the first thing I did was only shooting wide open at f3.5. On the video these are the tree in the field and the Library in Didsbury Manchester. This was quite effective but very restricting. Shooting wide open meant I had a very small focal length. This means it’s very easy to get the focus wrong. It also means your shutter is restricted as well. What if I really needed a higher f-stop for the results I needed? One way around this was to shoot at night. This meant I could have a very long shutter speed. This reduces the chances of aperture flicker, as the shutter is open for longer giving the camera more time to get the aperture right. (It also means you get to do lovely light trails when shooting traffic) In the video this is the cars whizzing past the tree. It was a 5 second exposure every 10 seconds. It worked but there was still some flicker. I needed to set a high f-stop for these shots and even with the long shutter, I got aperture flicker. I also wanted to try using a lens with a manual aperture ring. This was mainly due to the fact that I once was a working photographer before digital cameras and used a fully manual Nikon FM2. The other reason was as a working pro camera operator I use television lenses that always had a manual aperture ring. I knew this would help with flickering, as the camera would not have to select the aperture at all. The lens itself would just stay at what ever I set it at. After looking on eBay a while I found an old lens from about 1986 ish for about £30. OK, this was not going to be amazing, it’s an old lens designed for a full frame film camera, not a digital sensor, but for £30 I thought “what the heck”. It’s an old Pangor 28mm lens. I think I get about 50mm ish out of it as there is a crop factor, but I’m guessing now. Examples of this £30 old lens in the video are the cigarette in the ashtray and the view of the sky going to darkness. Any flicker in the cigarette shot is my friend and I walking around in the room by the window not aperture flicker. The cigarette burns very smoothly with little (if any) fluctuation in light at all. I can’t remember what aperture it was but whatever it was it wasn’t moving which can only be a good thing. The example of the sky shot going dark is also very slick. No fluctuation at all and much smoother then the wide-open version earlier with the kit lens. Unfortunately, using this type of lens does mean you can’t shoot in aperture priority mode (nice for light transitions like day to night). Still, it produces a nice image and helps me bypass the dreaded aperture flicker that can ruin a very time-consuming time lapse. Feel free to comment, advise and like my video. I hope this helps anyone with a Nikon, a kit lens and a thirst for shooting time lapse for the first time! I’ll look at software for part 2. On a budget of course.
