This post will be somewhat different in that while there's no images we have included movie clips.
We've been practicing taking time-lapse images and transferring them into a video now for a couple weeks now and I feel I'm getting the hang of things. Don started out using the Canon 1DsII IR converted camera and this morning I used Sandy's 1DsIII.
The setup is rather simple in that you need to set the camera on a sturdy tripod set the camera to manual (manual focus, f/stop and shutter speed) and use some method of triggering the shutter. Don uses a Canon TC80N3 Remote Timer Release that enables me to set the shutter to fire every 10 seconds for a maximum of 99 images before setting it again; he's been shooting at 10 second intervals till this morning; he attempted to shoot every 5 seconds however the remote reset back to 10 so he'll need to look into this a little further.
We've included two time-lapse videos of clouds from out back yard. The first was shoot using the Canon 1DsII IR (665nm filter)and is a combination of two separate sessions which were shot last night then processed into a black & white format. The second clip is the end result of one-hours' work this morning with the 1DsIII where the camera was focused at three different areas.
We might share more time-lapse and write more about the process if there's any interest - so let us know.

There's a great tutorial on time-lapse photography here.
