Nyrius Review and Demo
I’ve been wanting to try my hand at creating a timelapse for a while now. Last week I finally took the leap and ordered a knockoff intervalometer from ebay seller ADPLO. Shipping from Hong Kong took 7 days to reach Texas, and last night I was able to give it a test run. I set up the camera with the above settings, hit start and hoped for the best. When I got home, I followed @adamontherun’s “How to Timelapse” tutorial. First, I brought all of my stills into Windows Live Movie Maker (Windows 7), created a new .wmv movie with a duration of .10 seconds and exported. I then imported into Premiere Pro CS5, where I added my fade in/out and titles, and finally, exported in mp4 format. **UPDATE – I now use Quicktime Pro to create the Timelapse sequence, then bring into Premiere Pro.

So far the knock off Intervalometer has been working as expected. Being a complete newb to these types of devices, I found it very easy to use! Took about 10 seconds to figure out where to add my interval and the number of images I wanted to take, and I was off to the races. One bummer is there is no on/off switch, so the batteries must be removed each time in order to preserve. However, one thing I do like is there is a backlight, which was especially handy when creating the timelapse in the dark last night.
