Time-lapses have become popular and they’re not very hard to create. All you need is an intervalometer, a CF card with plenty of space and Quicktime. The large format stills allow you to generate digital pans, zooms, and tilts as if you shot on a dolly with some sort of servomechanism moving the camera. It’s a great trick, simple and straight forward. If you plan on giving this a try, I’d recommend doing it when there’s a change of light (night to day, day to night).
