Nikon D5100 Review

3 Great Timelapse Videos
These three videos from Jeff Chen Kuo Chih were captured over the period of several days in the Eastern Sierra. The foreground lighting in the third video adds an almost surreal effect to the night shots of the Milky Way.
It’s worth noting that these were shot using a combination of the Nikon D5100 and Nikon D3 cameras.
While the Canon 5D Mark II seems to get all the attention in time lapse videos, Nikon deserves a lot of credit for the time lapse capablities of its DSLRs. Most of the recent Nikon DSLRs (excluding the very base-level models) offer a built-in intervolometer, which means you can shoot time lapse sequences right out of the box without the need to by a $150 remote as is the case with Canon time lapse work.
