Here is how I mounted my Canon 1D-Mark III for the time lapse video. I build the bracket from scrap wood and two giant suction cups from Princess Auto. I then used a tie-down strap wrapped around the inside to keep the mount and cups squeezed down.

I used a Canon 24mm f1.4 lens and kept it at f1.4 most of the time. I ran a 10-ft USB cable from the camera to my laptop so I could control it with my laptop.

photo At night I set the camera to ISO6400, f1.4 in Av mode with -1EV exposure compensation. This gave me around 1/200 sec which was surprisingly fast for night shots. As the sun came up I lowered the ISO more and more until I was at ISO100, f1.4.
I set the Canon software to take one picture every five seconds.
In total 5315 frames were taken. I put them into a video using Final Cut Pro. For some of the parts in the video I play at 60fps. Most of it is at 30 fps.
