View Full Version : Time Lapse Car Trip 16 miles in 25 seconds

16 miles from Gosport to Waterlooville in 25 seconds - If only!!!

Taken using the time lapse feature on the E-M1 with the camera mounted onto the dashboard.

There is only one road in and out of Gosport and it simply cannot cope with all the new homes, lorries and business users

Sometimes this journey can take 60 - 90 mins to cover just 16 miles depending on the time of day.

I much prefer the time lapse version when I only need 25 seconds each way, the equivalent of 2,400 mph.


One photo taken every 8 seconds and automatically compiled in camera.

Those roads look remarkably empty, says he with the M25 and M1 running past his driveway!

This clip was made late on a Sunday afternoon - week days are totally different and the one road is often gridlocked.

However, having queued on the roads outside your front door many. many times I'd take Gosport as the least worst option any time.

This is as bad as rush hour gets around here:

Your excellent time lapse sequence really makes me appreciate living where I do.

Haha - that's brilliant David. I could cope with a rush hour like that.

Sometimes it can take an hour to get into or out of Gosport and the road is only about 3 miles long.

Excellent time lapse, must have a go at that one day.
David I can see why those ladies would be in a rush though.

ermmm Stephen I think you are referring to the "London Orbital Car Park" and London to Leeds "Northern Car Park" :D ;) :eek:

We have the "South Downs National Car Park" nearby (M3 only dual carriageway :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Car Park :cool: between Junctions 7 (Amazing Joke) and 9 (Winchester)
