Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens has a brand-new video focused on time lapse shooting. In the video below, Morgan covers the best camera settings for time lapses, including both shooting and processing.

Morgan works with a Canon 5D Mark III with Tamron zoom lenses and uses a MIOPS Mobile. You can use whichever intervalometer you want, but you will definitely want one for time lapse shooting unless your camera has a built-in time lapse shooting mode.

Morgan always shoots RAW+JPEG when he creates time lapse videos. The JPEG images are sometimes sufficient, but it's good to have the flexibility of the RAW files. Another important camera setting is to manually set your white balance and exposure parameters. For additional tips, watch the video below.
