Previous Ferry To Victoria
5 of 53 from December 2021

I had a tripod, my camera bag and a whole ferry ride to wait so why not try a time lapse off the front of the ferry?

A lot of things went wrong or were hard. The sun was in the image for most of the sailing which makes the exposure a pain. The ferry is vibrating I never got a sharp image out of the sequence. Shutter speed was between 1/125 and 1/640th so I think it was the VR elements in the lens that were shaking.

The ferry is not a stable platform but the bright moving water was very attractive to the ffmpeg image stabilization. I was un-unable to stabilize past the opening sequence.

This is 962 images, all shot at f8 with an interval of 6 seconds. I started taking photos at 2:00:37pm and finished at 3:36:43pm. Sunset was probably 4:15.

To demonstrate I can learn, here is a similar ferry trip with Image stabilization working.
