Years before, in film, I’d done time lapse with various single frame cameras and intervalometers but never with my Sony PD150 DVCam. I didn’t even know if it had the capability. It does. Time lapse photography remains one area where film has an indisputable advantage over video – the mechanics of advancing the film. You can shoot film one frame at a time but you can not do that with a video camera.
