Panasonic cameras combined with the VIEW Intervalometer makes it easy to achieve the holy-grail timelapse sequence.
Note: Make sure the USB mode on the camera is set to PC Tether (for the GH3 & GH4 set it to “Remote Control (PTP)”), in manual mode, RAW, and single-shot burst mode. For the GH5, GH5S, and G9, firmware v1.8-beta23 or newer is required for the VIEW.
What is the Timelapse holy grail?
The Holy Grail of timelapse has been the pursuit of creating near perfect transition from day to night without much post editing. The VIEW can automatically ramp the exposure by analyzing the exposure value of each image and delivers perfect results for sunset, sunrise or milky-way captures. Automatic day-to-night and night-to-day or even 24 hours with no setup needed -- just press start!
The results are significantly better and smoother than the camera's aperture priority mode since by analyzing each image it can achieve proper exposure for the Milky Way even when ramping from noon sun, while at the same time ignoring sudden changes such as from headlights.
