Here is the third field test of my time lapse dolly. I am finally getting a grip with this machine. This short video is not perfect yet, but I am close. I unfortunately made some miscalculations while setting up my rig. That resulted in an 8 seconds sequences which was a bit short for this test. This is the first test where I put a subject really close to my camera. I used a 14mm lens for this sequence. The movement of the dolly is smooth, but will be better next time.
I just returned from my very first field test of my OpenMoco based time-lapse dolly. The dolly worked great and gave me no big issues at all. I might have to change the points where the rail is put on the two tripods, but that is only 10 minutes of work. Just more holes to drill and more wire to tap. This sequence was shot in RAW with a Nikon D700 and a Nikon 14-24 lens. I have used this combination before for time-lapse photography. I find it really annoying that I see a lot of flicker in the beginning of the sequence. I normally don't have that with this lens.
