Sony A5000 Time-Lapse Test on Fish Tank Cleaning

Testing out the time-lapse app on the Sony A5000 camera. I had to clean and change one of my fish tanks so I decided to see how the Sony A5000's time-lapse app would handle it. It came out pretty good I think. Now for a real trial outside and seeing how it handles the sunlight. I will be making a full review on the Sony A5000 in the future.

Fish Tank Time-Lapse Tests with GoPro Hero3 White Edition

I have made a couple time-lapse videos with my fish tanks. One was in my smaller 10g tank the other my 35g tank. Both videos are posted below. Here are the stats for the videos.

Video #1: 5 seconds, 2820 pictures, 4.73Gigs.

Video #2: 5 seconds, 4712 pictures, 6.98Gigs.

These were not shot in the best of conditions. It was really to test out the underwater housing that came with the GoPro. That being said since I made two videos the housing was working fine so no loss of a GoPro to water damage. you can watch the videos here or over on my youtube channel.

New Lens

So last night I decided to get a new 300mm lens. I had to choose between the Nikon 70-300mm f/4-5.6G AF Nikkor Lens and the Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens. This is for my Nikon D800 which is a full frame camera. The lens I had been using up to this point was the Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Len which I bought with my Nikon D5200. The price of the Tamron was a little more ($10) but one feature it has over the Nikon was a macro feature which I am interested in seeing how that works.

This will be the first time I have used a third party lens and I will post a review about it after I get to field test it. Its suppose to arrive on Wednesday 12/3/14 which is tomorrow and I hope for good weather the next day so I can go out and use it.
