Maybe I am missing something, I see 2 different issues being discussed here. One is Time lapse and the other is long exposure. Personally right now I need time lapse, not the longer exposures, I can always crank the ISO up if I need more light, or light the scene better. But what I do want is time lapse, from 1 frame per second up maybe 1 frame every 10 minutes, and it would be ideal to be able to adjust how many frames it captures at each burst, from 1 to maybe 25 frames. Then I would have a ver good feature to use.
Long exposures + timelapses = two sides of the same cake for some nature stuff.
But if I was to choose, I'd have taken the TL now and the rest later
Before RDC released the Scarlet-X, it was marketed heavily as a true DSMC camera. Many of us bought the camera precisely under that assumption. It's almost 8 months after the Nov 3rd release and we're STILL dragging our DSLRs around to capture stills and timelapses. #dissapointing
I have to agree with those voicing regrets about long exposures... IF anything longer than 1 sec??? Epic has been portrayed as a DSMC - that S is for Stills... pulling frames from the movie stream is great but actually limited in terms of still work. Please don't get me wrong here the Epic is fantastic and everything it is said to be for moving images but for me time lapse WITH long exposures is a necessity. I know the whole team at Red work miracles and I truly appreciate them... but I hope long exposure time lapse is a matter of WHEN rather than IF... please...Originally Posted by TheBied :
As far as longer exposure go, we're still working on it. In order to make the longer exposures useful you do need to calibrate the camera when using them. Remember, R1 is limited to 1s max as well. If anything longer than 1s is doable and usable it will make it into a build eventually.
Just wanted to bump the thread and check whether timelapse was still on the table for the next firmware release?
+1 here too.
Now that the Pro I/O is shipping Epic is ALMOST as functional as Red One ..... still can't understand why so many functions that we have had forever on Red One disappeared for over a year with Epic.....
