GoPro Hero 3 on time-lapse mode set to take a picture every half-second. Played back at 25 frames a second that makes it 12.5 times faster than actual speed.
The GoPro's were mounted on some hacked up kitchen egg-timers so that they slowly rotate while taking pictures - that's what you see in the video already posted - but have since changed over to using the Camalapse pan timers - http://www.camalapse.com/
- more stable and easier set up / take apart as they have proper tripod mounts top and bottom. (my previous set up was relying on some double side tape
The GoPros are using the non-waterproof frame mount so I have access to the charge port etc.
At the end of it - you'll end up with thousands of pictures, which will be in 4:3 aspect ratio. Use IrfanView (Cnet Downloads) to do a batch process to crop them down to 16:9 if you want widescreen - then import them into your movie editing software and set the duration accordingly. For 25 fps the duration needs to be 0.04 s.
I'm still learning with it all though
I'm looking forward to using the Camalapse up in the mountains with a candy red brute as the clouds race by overhead
