A client has asked about doing a 14 day time-lapse.
Im guessing you would get the camera shooting tethered to a laptop and that laptop would FTP/E-mail to my server.
It is an interior location, 'secure' with wifi and power.
I guess we would need to get the images to check on them and of course provide back up.
The location is a couple of hours drive - close enough to go and mend it in emergency, but to far too go for daily checkups/downloads/batt swaps.
I have 5dmk2/3 D3, D80, D600, ideally we'd use the 80 or the mk2 as they are spare from daily shoots and all have great res for HD delivery.
Any ideas/links etc..
I've done one a few years ago, a 30 day construction timelapse in an exterior setting. Unfortunately, no links.
Some thoughts from that experience, though technology might have changed: A Nikon has (had?) the better intervelometer, and Canon needs an external one. Of course, I couldn't commute daily as well but a laptop was out of the question. Somebody checked the camera at the end of the day to make sure shots were captured. This person also cleaned the rig and the front of the lens.
Capture more shots than you need. I'm guessing you already know how to calculate shots based on the final duration. This way, if you miss shots due to error or whatever, you can still fill in the timelapse.
Prime lens only, fully manual, bracketing, JPEGs highest quality (so you can pan and scan if you like). All brought into AE (back then NLEs had project size limitations). AE has blend modes similar to Photoshop but no HDR (at least not in CS3).
At least you don't have to deal with both day and night, birds, wind, dust and a specialized rig with additional AC power backup.
