I finally found a use for K20D interval shooting mode
May 22, 2008

I have finally worked out what the K20D "interval shooting" mode is useful for:

K20D, Sigma 10-20mm, Hoya polarizer, raw processing and colour mangulation in Photoshop Elements, suction-cup mount from eBay.

While I do have both wired and wireless remotes, it is significantly easier to mount the camera on the wing and set it to take a picture every 10 seconds. This gives about 15 minutes shooting for the maximum 99 images. You lose the ability to snap exact moments but I've ended up with quite a few interesting shots that I wouldn't have thought to take.

Note: this isn't the best shot from the series; I'm hoping to get the best one published eventually. I've learned that while the photos are all technically good and the central subject is a given, most of the 200 frames I took are terrible photographs because the background is boring/flat/busy.
