I've shot timelapse video with a video camera on a few occasions and got some really cool stuff. Lately, I've been experimenting with TLV using a Digital Still Camera. Here's a vid by Zach Wise on how to shoot time lapse video with a still camera.
*Note: From my own experiments, I'd like to add these additions to Zach's information.
1. If you have After Effects or another advanced software, you can easily import your photo sequences in as 'JPEG' sequences. Same rules apply concerning the correct numbering as importing with QT Pro.
Here's short film we did with a Nikon D5000. It's really random, but it looks sort of cool.
HDSLR's are quite good for what you spend. I was quite impressed by the quality from a sub-$1000 camera.

Whether working in film, video or digital media you must have a process for preparation, acquisition and processing of your imagery. Having 'workflow protocols' are the steps you take to make sure you're using the right camera for the job, have all the proper settings selected on your camera prior to shooting and that there's a clear record of what images, video or digital files came from where prior to getting them into an editing bay.
It's been a while since I've put anything up so here's a vid from Still Motion with some good intermediate tips on how to make adjustments for shooting with a DSLR outside in bright sun. Now, the lessons talked about also apply to dedicated video cameras as well concerning apeture, shutterspeed and Neutral Density Filters as well.

Hello, I'm rather new to videography as a business and am currently saving up from some gear via photography and renting video equipment.. I just recently found a group of film makers who use only dslr as video cameras which is a nice option because it's multi use and you get the nice DoF..
So here is my question, I mainly do wedding and party videography and was wondering if the traditional 3ccd prosumer is the best option or would a dslr rig be any good for weddings?
