I was thinking of taking a time lapse of the eclipse with my nikon d3300 but not of just the sun but of the sun and the landscape. Unfortunately, I have to work during the eclipse and I was thinking of leaving the camera at home taking the pictures. Do you have any tips on how to configure it? In terms of mode (auto vs manual), F values, ISO and so on.. Thanks in advance!
Got the same idea but I'm lucky enough to take day off.
I made some tests last Sunday and I will make a few adjustments Friday, but after gathering some more info on the net I will probably go for
• Manual focus and manual settings • F between 7.1 and 9 • Speed 1/8000 or 1/6400 • Aperture 16mm (full format) • ISO 200
I'm interested in the landscape but I don't want the the sun to be too over-exposed otherwise the Moon will barely be visible, so in my tests the landscape is dark but it's OK with me. Also, I live in Switzerland and the eclipse will only be at 70%.
Hope this helps
