Before Shooting

Before beginning time-lapse photography, take a test shot at current 
settings (framing the photo in the viewfinder for an accurate exposure 
preview) and view the results in the monitor. For consistent coloration, 
choose a white balance setting other than auto (

0 111). Once settings 

have been adjusted to your satisfaction, remove the rubber eyecup 
and cover the viewfinder with the supplied eyepiece cap to prevent 
light entering via the viewfinder interfering with photographs and 
exposure (

0 70).

Use of a tripod is recommended. Mount the camera on a tripod before 
shooting begins. To ensure that shooting is not interrupted, use an 
optional AC adapter and power connector or a fully-charged battery.
