This time lapse video along Sun City Center Blvd (SR-674) was spliced together with free software called Windows Movie Maker.

Sony Time-Lapse App on FL-674

Camera used for these photos was the Sony A7 Full Frame – get price at amazon.com

This video was created with the Sony Time Lapse App on a Sony A7 camera. The individual clips were unedited and spliced together in Windows Movie Maker which is free software. The music was provided by YouTube’s Audio Library which is free as well.

I have been learning there are so many ways to create a time-lapse video. Some phones and cameras like the Cannon SX710 creates these right in the camera.

Here is what I used to create this one

Traffic in Sun City Center, FL (SR-674)

SOUTHSHORE / SUN CITY CENTER, FL – Sun City Center Blvd (SR-674) has picked up some traffic over the years along with longer wait times at stop lights.

I noticed around 1:00 pm, a day after publishing this page, I was in a line of cars backed up past Taco Bell waiting for the light at 674 and Kings Boulevard. Google calculates this distance around 9/10s of a mile. Surprisingly, the wait time was not that bad really; especially if you have a good song playing on the radio.

The video below features traffic at the U.S. Post Office in Sun City Center Plaza and at different locations along SR-674. The video is meant more for entertainment but does read ‘Caution’ when visiting our Post Office.

The county plans to widened SR-674 starting with Wimauma from US-301 to CR-579. The Sun City Center section of 674 will be widened years later.
