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~

Short Time-Lapse

I set up my Fujifilm X-E4 for a long timelapse, but it shut off early. My guess is that it overheated once the sun started hitting it in the late afternoon. Oh well, I still got enough footage to make a short video:

I hope you had a good day!
