Having upgraded from my Fuji X-T20 to an X-T4, I was able to take two digital bodies on holiday – mainly because I specifically wanted to try some timelapses.

I’ve already posted the lightning clip on the France 2022, at the gite post – I wasn’t thinking of that as a timelapse while I was taking the photos, but the ones here were all specifically planned as timelapses.

This first one is a pretty good evening sequence heading into sunset (but facing east), with some nicely ominous clouds repeatedly gathering and clearing.
57 seconds: 1710 images, 1/500 sec taken every 3 seconds.
Started at 18:05, running for 90 minutes.
Samyang 12mm lens (18mm equivalent).

This one was taken one lunchtime, facing north with the weather coming from the west – a nice set of rolling broken clouds.
33 seconds: 1011 images, 1/2000 sec taken every 7 seconds.
Started at 11:55, running for 2h15m.
Samyang 12mm lens.

This was on the afternoon of the same day, facing east – a new wide view of passing high cloud.
47 seconds: 1129 images, 1/1250 sec taken every 8 seconds.
Started at 14:45, running for 2h 30m.
Samyang 12mm lens.

A third from the same day, evening this time – again facing west, with light cloud heading into dusk, and some heavier cloud coming in at the end.
32 seconds: 775 images 1/500 taken every 8 seconds.
Started at 17:45, running for 1h 40m.
Samyang 12mm lens.

This one ran pretty much all day, with a battery change part way through (you can see a small shift when it happened!). I wanted to do one showing the shadows moving with the sun, but the layout of the grounds made that a bit tricky – this is facing north.
42 seconds, 1015 images 1/2000 sec taken every 30 seconds.
Started at 10:15, running until 18:45
Fuji 18mm lens (28mm equivalent).

This one was done on my phone (Googe Pixel 5) using the Framelapse app, so I’m not quite sure how long it ran for nor what the shooting interval was – it was a long time (all afternoon and into dusk), the phone to be plugged into a power source.
Not massively eventful, but I’m quite happy with it as the weather clears as we head into dusk.

This one was quite different – taken using the 8mm fisheye lens pointing pretty much straight up, starting at dusk and running into the night. The key feature here is the ISS pass.
15 seconds, 383 images of 15 secs each taken every 16 seconds.
Started at 19:45, running until 21:30.
