So next Saturday will be my first time shooting a time lapse that I REALLY want to work out. I will be on one of the Tugs in the Seattle Tugboat Races and I will want to make the time lapse show our trip from the dock, through the Ballard Locks, and out to the Puget Sound. I will be using a friends Canon G12 to shoot the video so I can still shoot with my camera as we make our trip. I have a tripod, intervelometer, gaffers tape, batteries, batteries, more batteries and a tripod. My biggest concern is dealing with the vibrations from the boat. I haven't been on the boat while it is running yet, but my bet is, the 1940's diesel isn't exactly a smooth running engine and will transfer quite a bit of vibration to the camera. Does anyone have any good ideas for isolating the camera from the boats vibrations while making sure it doesn't move? If the weather is good then I want to put it dead center on the roof of the boat.
