-How long would my time lapse be? I have a 32gb sandisk SD card and I guess I would have to shoot in RAW correct?
-What would be good settings for pictures at night in a well lit area? ISO,Aperature, F/s etc... ( I will be using the 18-55mm macro lense my T4i came with)
- I know I will need a tripod( Any recommendations for good cheap one for now?) but what other equipment shall I need?
-I would do around 2.5-10 seconds depending on the amount of traffic flowing through.
-Night well lit area, it really depends. I'd highly suggest picking up a 50 f/1.8 for use during night, f/1.8 lets quite a bit more light in compared to f/3.5.
-Can't help you on this
