- Wedding: December 1969
Yesterday I learned how to make a video using nothing more than a regular old digital camera and a high school graphing calculator (like the TI-83)! Basically you copy some very basic code into your calculator, which turns it into a timer for your camera (fancy name for this in an intervalometer). Then you use the cable that comes with the calculator to connect it to your camera. It programs the camera to take a photo every couple of seconds. Then you take all your photos all put them into any video editing software like imovie and it turns it into a stop-motion video, just like the old Gumby cartoons from when we were kids.
The (easy to follow) tutorial instructions are here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Turn-a-TI-Graphing-Calculator-into-an-Intervalomet/
And you can see a beautiful example of this kind of video here: http://www.vimeo.com/1369534
I think this would be a really cool and super cheap way to DIY your own wedding video if you don’t have the budget for a videographer. How awesome would this be for the first dance?! Hope this helps someone!
