Review: Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote for Canon EOS R & Rebel Series
The Canon EOS R is a pretty great camera but it’s missing a couple of amenities. The built-in time-lapse movie mode is great if you want to have a finished 4K timelapse out of the camera as a video file. If you want to capture still images for later editing and assembly, however, you are out of luck with the in-camera options. [Read more…]

How to Shoot Time Lapse Sequences on the Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R
The past two releases of Canon professional DSLRs show that Canon has finally come around to the notion that its customers who pay thousands of dollars for a camera think an intervalometer should be built-in. The Canon 7D Mark II along with the 5DS and 5DS R cameras are the first Canon DSLRs to offer a built-in intervalometer. With these new models, it is now possible to shoot interval images for time lapse sequences without the need for the overpriced Canon TC-80N3.
Note, however, that shooting still images with the built-in intervalometer is different than shooting in Time-lapse movie mode on the 5DS and 5DS R. [Read more…]
