Afternoon Time-Lapse

I need to find a new place to shoot some time-lapses, but upstairs at our house is just too convenient. 😄

Twilight Time-Lapse (Automatic Shutter Speed)

For today’s time-lapse, I set my Fujifilm X-E4’s shutter speed to “A”. I wanted to see how it adjusts, and if the exposure adjustment is noticeable. While you can see the brightness change several times, it’s not as bad as I thought it would be, but I think I will use fully manual for the future.

Please enjoy the video!

Overheating Fujifilm X-E4 Camera

“Sun Shield” Cedar Park, 2021

My Fujifilm X-E4 camera shut off during shooting a time-lapse sequence the other day, so I was unable to capture the sunset I was hoping for. I believe what happened was the camera overheated and shut itself down. This has been known to happen while recording long, high-resolution videos, but I hadn’t experienced this with just shooting stills.

In order to stop this overheating from happening again, I made this cardboard shield to block the sun. I also have changed the image size that the camera is capturing frames to “medium” which is large enough to produce a 4K video sequence.

It appears the shield worked as intended as the camera was able to keep shooting even with the afternoon sun hitting the shield. Yay!

I hope you had a nice day. またね~

Unstable Skies

“Break in the Clouds” Cedar Park, 2021

Hurricane Ida is churning in the Gulf of Mexico and up here in Austin we are seeing the outer band of clouds. It makes for a lot of interesting cloud formations in the sky but I just hope there won’t be too much hurricane damage along the coast…

It’s been a while since I made a time-lapse video using my Fujifilm X-E4 but today was a great opportunity. Enjoy!
