    Default Right way to shoot a time lapse video with Canon 5D Mark 4 ?

    Hi. We are a corporate video making company based in Mumbai, India. Now we have a client for whom we have to do a 15 day time lapse (8 to 12 hours a day). What I wanted to know was that should I use the timelapse setting in Canon 5D Mark 4 to shoot the footage or should I shoot in normal video and create the time lapse during the edit. Thanks in advance. We need something similar to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTwF3ZUQ82U

    Use the time-lapse setting: https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/ind...p=LIST_POPULAR
    You can only shoot 30 minutes of video with DSLR's if I'm not mistaken. Besides it's not good practice to speed up video for time-lapse creation. You can get far far far better results by shooting RAW pictures at an interval and since you're a company you should take yourself serious and do things the professional way in my humble opinion.

    I shoot quite a lot of time lapse, albeit on a Nikon DSLR, using the time lapse mode, and the results are very good. I'd imagine Canon results would be equally impressive.
