Canon EOS 60D travels the USA to create a unique “Drivelapse”

I seem to have been in a timelapse fever lately – but this one has gotten national attention and it is a bit different than the ones we've posted lately… a USA Drivelapse sent in by Brian DeFrees

I recently returned from a 12,225 mile roadtrip around the United States. During my trip I summarized each day in photos using the iPhone apps “Picframe” and “Instagram”. When I was traveling in my car I was shooting photos from my Canon 60D every 5 seconds with an intervalometer. When I was parked for the night or exploring an area on foot I was constantly timelapsing. I used the Canon 60D and captured to 16GB cards and then used my old school PowerBook to offload the cards while I was driving.
