Time lapse videos have always fascinated me. Maybe it’s the illusion of condensing time to a higher data density. All I know is I’m not alone. Vimeo has an entire channel devoted to time-lapse videos, such as this:
I honestly don’t know how the pros do it, but thanks to the ReelMoments iPhone app, you can join in the fun. Here’s an example that I shot this evening. I used my GorillaMobile iPhone 4 tripod (which rocks), pointed the camera out my living room window and let it run.
You can take this a step further using iMovie for the iPhone to add in a soundtrack, like I did for this sunset at Doheny beach.
Reel Moments is $1.99; a small price for the capability.
One thing I’d still like to investigate is how to move the camera as well. I figure I could rig something up with servos. Any suggestions?
