Yeah - it's great. Congrats to the guy who made it (Tom) - he's seriously talented. I'll have to buy one of those interval timers and start learning and experimenting with time lapse. There is also a rotating tripod thing that shifts every few seconds. I have to try the camera on the car dash thing too .

Holy Shit that was beautiful. Can you do that with any camera? How can I do a timelapse with my NikonD200?

Yes - a basic time lapse can be done with any DSLR that can handle a remote interval shutter. He shot the above video with stills, but some of the scenes were HD video from the 5D Mark II. His forum is http://www.timescapes.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=5. It give some good basics of time lapse. You have to use software like Adobe Premiere or Final Cut to import the stills as an image sequence.

Here's the time lapse stuff I mentioned. This was shot entirely on a 5D II (still sequences + video) - amazing stuff.

I just ordered my first DSLR and I am very excited, while it is not as fancy as the cameras that are in use here, it will do for me. I went ahead and purchased the Canon EOS Rebel XSi Silver 12.20 MP. yay me!

I'm thinking of getting a 70-200mm for my 5D II. There are four versions of it that span a large price range. Any owners have advice on the IS on this lens? Based on cost/value, I am leaning towards the f/4 IS version, and then maybe the f/4 non-IS.

I have the f/4 non IS version, and it is a wonderful lens. Sharp, great contrasty images, solid build and light compared to the f/2.8 versions. On my camera it quickly loses it's usefulness indoors in anything but the brightest of light, but with the 5DII's awesome high iso performance that may not be such a hindrance. My only choices at the time were the f/4 or the f/2.8 versions, the f/4 IS wasn't out yet. I'd probably be leaning towards that if I were in shopping for a good telezoom now.

^Thanks. I read the IS version gives 4 stops of shake correction, so I'll probably go for that one. I also might try out a 1.4 or 2x extender with it to try shooting birds or sports, but I think I read the image can degrade a bit, depending on settings. I have to research it (the extender) more.
