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 78); for consistent 
coloration, choose a white balance setting other than auto (
0 115). We recommend that 
you briefly switch to movie live view and check the current image area crop in the monitor 
(
0 57); 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.
