D810 Time Lapse (movie)

Post your TL movie links in this thread. I've been continuing to work on mine, and here's the latest version:


Be sure to select the 1080p setting. Here's the description:

"Clouds have always fascinated me. Sometimes anthropomorphic forms appear in them, animal or even human shapes. Aesthetic cloud formations can make our photographs interesting.

Clouds can be such shape shifters, but when you look at them in real time, they seem to stand still. Look at a time lapse movie like this one, and you can see how they form and change.

This is a series of several of my first Nikon D810 time lapse movies. With 2 minutes of1080p footage at 60 fps, there are 7200 images here. I hope you enjoy them all!"

Also post your TL tips here. I'm new to this, and so could use guidance from more experienced folks.

One problem I'm having with TL-ing clouds, they tend to move out of my frame over time. (I don't want to just frame overly wide angle to avoid this, as I like to get fairly close in to show the details.) Is there a way to remotely view the TL as it's recording? Eg, with something like CamRanger and an iPad? Then, is there some equipment to use that would allow one to slowly follow the action? Some kind of slide setup?
