    Hi there … using the 500 rule (500/focal length of lens) .. you said this is for FULL FRAME sensor cameras – does the same rule apply to crop sensor cameras – or do you apply the crop sensor ratio, then apply 500 rule rule? Hope that makes sense. cheers and your video and work is wicked as bro.

    Adobe should buy out LRTimeLapse and incorporate its features into Lightroom!

    Wouldn't an ISO of 3200 make the shot grainy?

    Are there any basic versions of the genie? I don't want to be spending that much on something like this, even one of those very basic panoramic gopro timers would be fine but they can't hold the weight of a DSLR
