Threw together a bicycle mount for my 50D, gunna try my luck with stop-motion? photography. Any tips on shutter speeds/apertures for this type of thing would be appreciated.
^Quick video of how I have it mounted, there is a piece of a 2x4 drilled and bolted (three bolts + plus bungies for emergencies) to my rear bicycle rack. The camera hangs about 1.5-2ft to the right of the bicycle, it is mounted with a bold that goes threw the end of the 2x4 into the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera, with a rag in between for shock absorption and to keep it tight. Then I have my camera linked via usb to my laptop in a backback that is running a program to trigger the camera every 5 seconds and save the picture to the laptop.
I did a 1 mile test ride with it to try some settings
manual - f/13 - 1/80th shutter - iso 800 - 50D -50mm f1.8
Obviously the focus is way off, I think I might have to tape the focus ring so it doesnt move.Edited by xlastshotx - 2/25/10 at 7:31pm
