Of course it has it’s limitations, it will take only very small cameras, something like a GoPRO HD or what I used, an iphone. Larry Towe kindly made me a couple after I met him at the St Petersburg meet up and he sent them to me. So very kind thanks! It can rotate for up to one hour for the full 360 degree.
Here is one I did by mounting the egg timer onto my gorillapod, an iphone Z-grip upside down screwed onto the egg timers as it has the thread on it and used the excellent app “itimelapse” for the iphone. All was rendered, music added and uploaded within the app! It’s shot during the Key West meet up which was enormous fun. Huge thanks to Eric Kessler for hosting it!
Here is Larry’s little video tutorial on how to one for yourself and the one he did with GoPro HD, which also takes stills so perfect for this.
Don’t want to make your own? Well you can also buy one from Camarush for $25, it is called the Camalapse. It doesn’t come with the mini trpod or the GOPro Hero mount. The video below is shot using the Camalapse and is about 550 degrees!!
