Before Shooting
Before beginning time-lapse photography, take a test shot at current 
settings (framing the photo in the viewfinder for an accurate exposure 
preview) and view the results in the monitor. To record changes in 
brightness, choose manual exposure (
0 122); for consistent coloration, 
choose a white balance setting other than auto (
0 145). We 
recommend that you briefly switch to movie live view and check the 
current image area crop in the monitor (
0 59); note, however, that 
time-lapse photography is not available in live view.
Use of a tripod is recommended. Mount the camera on a tripod before 
shooting begins. To ensure that shooting is not interrupted, use an 
optional EH-5b AC adapter and EP-5B power connector or a fully-
charged EN-EL15 battery.
