Camera's internal intervalometer with qdslrdashboard

Offline
#1 Lets
Is it possible to use my camera's (Nikon d750) internal intervalometer while shooting automatic holy grails?

Qdslrdashboard's intervalometer' timming seems to be slightly off on my iPhone 7.

If it isn't possible to use the d750's intervalometer, which one would you recommend?

Thank you for your time!

The internal intervalometer is not a good option and it won't work with qDDB.
The best option would be the LRTPTF, see:

The second best option would be the Pixel TC252 or any other external intervalometer with the intervalometer hack: http://lrtimelapse.com/news/intervalometer-hack/

the third best option the Pixel TC252 without the hack.

In any case use an external trigger. It's the most reliable and performant option.

Hello, I have the same problem.
I tried my first holy grail test with LRtimelapse 4 and qdslr on my new D750. It works perfectly, without any flickering, except the intervals (triggered by QDSLR timer) which are very irregular and lower the footage quality.

LRTPTF is way too complex for me (I live in Reunion Island in indian ocean). Pixel TC252 seems to be limited at 99 shots (?) (http://www.pixelrussia.com/upload/downlo...Manual.pdf), which is not enough for timelapses.
Is there a simple solution for my D750 ?

Hi
The pixel timer works perfectly fine for time lapses with the D750 (and of course other cams). Just set it in interval mode choosing the interval you need and the cam will take pictures until you stop it. In this mode you can take a lot of pictures which are more then sufficient for a nice holy grail time lapse. I don't know what the limitations timewise are but I def took a time lapse for more than two hours with it.
Best regards
Monika

Yeah, Pixel 252 timer has no limitations, just set it to infinite shots. Consider out the autofocus hack for maximum performance: http://forum.lrtimelapse.com/Thread-inte...-around-it
