you can see a short timelapse video clip at the bottom, but you need flash 8 installed.

we were invited for lunch on the weekend at a family friend's place and I noticed the interesting cloud patterns so I started a timelapse session while having lunch!

for this I used a wonderful new gadget called pclix. this device gives me the possibility to start a timelapse session within seconds without the need of a laptop or a workstation. and that's only the beginning! it's completely programmable and works both wireless (using infrared) and wired. it also supports bulb shutter speeds and the interval time can be set even within a fraction of a second provided your camera can handle it. and since this little gadget doesn't use an LCD screen and is analog, the battery runs for months. it's super light and small enough to fit in your camera bag. all you need is a big memory card and enough battery or power adapter.

paul who created pclix gave it to me for testing a few months back and I've been carrying it everywhere with me and I was surprised how often I've used it. the usage is not only limited to timelapse photography, but is an excellent way to control very long exposures, which I'll post a sample of soon. thank you paul for this wonderful new toy!
