I’d love to have a deeper buffer and 10-12 FPS as on the Nikon D4 and Canon 1DX, but otherwise I find the 5D3 very practical for shooting high action sports with careful planning. I try to be pretty selective about positioning the camera, and timing to take maximum advantage of the bursts Sean at SD Fishing Pier, south  of pier

My favorite way of creating basic timelapses with the Canon 5D Mark III and Premiere Pro

Posted in Photography, Reviews, Video on September 5, 2013 by William Hooks

I use the method of selecting “image sequence” box in lower left corner of import window for THE FIRST IMAGE ONLY, to convert the photo set of images into a video sequence in Premiere Pro. This can be easily confirmed by checking for the filmstrip icon next to the file, in the LIST view mode of the Project panel.

    Advantages of this workflow:

1- No additional software needed; I use LR Timelapse 3.1 (LR= Level Ramp) for certain more advanced work, but only the free trial version which limits to 400 images and it’s much less intuitive.

2-I can employ all the power of the entire Adobe Master Collection for post, including PS for graphics, AE for motion graphics, Audition for added sound/music, etc- just as for any other video project. No change in GUI.

3-It’s rapidly accomplished.
