    I know this has been done before, but when my brother and I replaced the hard drive in my MBP, we decided to set up his new Canon XSi and make a time lapse movie out of it. Figuring out how to do that took almost as long as the hard drive replacement.

    Anyway, he finally got around to finishing it. The music is his work ;)

    How do you make a time lapse video with the XSi? I have one and I would love to know how to do it.

    all I know is we had to hook it up to his MBP to do it
    couldn't do it from the camera alone

    edit: hey, i don't have a macrumors forum name, so just tell that person that i used eos utility and connected the camera to the usb.. then after i took the pictures, i used quicktime pro to string them together by selecting "open image sequence"

    the worst part is getting the front latches back in as snug as they should be
    and make sure you have a good screwdriver, I found some variability between them even when listed as the same size
