Last friday I visited the south bank In london and took a 8.5 minute film in hd with my canon 60d I then made several versions using a relatively cheap software sony vegas platinum suite.... to change the speed and direction..... there are some examples below.......... so this might be away of avoiding racking up hundreds of images and wearing out the camera shutter.....

speeded up about 9x


cut and reversed


reversed and in slow motion....


watch the jogger..............


there are some minor glitches maybe due to my 7 year old computer but I hope this is a way around shooting hundreds of images....... David

good idea, but doubtful it would be much good for true time lapse, as DSLR sensors can only do a few minutes of video without turning off, as the sensor overheats, so to get a couple of hours worth off time lapse, you still need to take the pictures.... unless you use a dedicated HD video camera of course.
