Use these photography time-lapse calculators so you can get the perfect time-lapse without having nightmares about your high-school math lessons.

**I’ve got 3 handy timelapse calculators for you here:**

- Shooting interval time-lapse calculator
- Clip length calculator
- Actual recording time

## Shooting Interval – Time Lapse Calculator

To use this shooting interval time-lapse calculator simply enter the:

- Clip length (seconds)
- Total recording time (minutes)
- Frames per second that you want for playback (normally 24fps for most people)
- (optional) Image size (MB)

The calculator will then tell you your shooting interval and the total number of photos you will need.

This way you will know how often you need to capture a photo for your perfect timelapse.

If you also know your image size in terms of memory it will also tell you how much storage will be taken up by all the photos in your timelapse.

If you need to convert your recording time from seconds to minutes just divide the time in seconds by minutes. e.g. 45 seconds -> 45/60 = 0.75 minutes.

## Clip Length – Time Lapse Calculator

Use this clip length calculator to figure out how long your time-lapse will be when all of the photos are stitched together.

Just enter the following parameters:

- Shooting Interval (seconds)
- Total recording time (minutes)
- Frames per second that you want for playback (normally 24fps for most people)
- (optional) Image size (MB)

This time-lapse calculator will then tell you your clip length and the total number of photos you will need.

It will also tell you the memory needed (MB) for all of the photos.

## Total Recording Time – Time Lapse Calculator

Use this total recording time calculator to find out how long you can expect your camera to be taking photos for.

Just enter the following parameters:

- Shooting Interval (seconds)
- Clip length (seconds)
- Frames per second that you want for playback (normally 24fps for most people)
- (optional) Image size (MB)

This time-lapse calculator will then tell you your total recording time in real-time.

e.g. If you are doing a time-lapse of a sunset and your total recording time is only 1 minute then you might want to fiddle with the numbers to get this longer so you can actually catch more of the changes throughout the duration of the sunset.
