Timelapse+ VIEW Intervalometer

April 25, 2016 | Zoltan Arva-Toth | Accessories | Comment |

Timelapse+ have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the commercialisation of their auto ramping VIEW intervalometer. To allow for automatic day-to-night and night-to-day time lapse creation without any complicated setup, the VIEW individually analyses the exposure value of each image the camera takes; then feeds it through a sophisticated algorithm to deliver perfect results for sunset, sunrise, or night sky captures. This allows it to achieve what its creators call "the holy grail in time lapse photography." Additionally, the Timelapse+ VIEW provides photographers with the ability to watch a preview of the time-lapse sequence while it is still being captured, upon a gentle wave of the hand in front of the device. A smartphone app extends the experience even further, giving professionals complete control over their camera. They can preview, make settings adjustments and even download images remotely. The early-bird backer pricing is $320 for one Timelapse+ VIEW. Following the Kickstarter launch, the retail price will be $380.

Auto bulb ramping intervalometer enables photographers to control camera and time-lapse photos remotely from a smartphone

  • Preview mode on the VIEW and the smartphone app allows you to see your resulting time-lapse at 30fps, even while it is still in progress .
  • The VIEW has a smart ramping algorithm that completely automates the day/night transitions, the “holy grail” of time-lapse photography. So easy they may stop calling it the Holy Grail.
  • The VIEW is designed to work with gloves and can even be controlled touch-free, using only gestures.
  • This is the second Kickstarter campaign for Timelapse+. The first Kickstarter project raised over $165,000 on a $20,000 goal.

The VIEW is a breakthrough intervalometer that allows for automatic day-to-night and night-to-day time lapse creation without
any complicated setup. Just press start!

To accomplish this, the automatic bulb ramping individually analyzes the exposure value of each image the camera takes. It then
feeds it through a sophisticated algorithm to deliver perfect results for sunset, sunrise, or night sky captures. This together allows it to achieve what is known as the holy grail in time lapse photography.

Another challenge with capturing time lapses is never really knowing if what has been captured is any good until you’re back at
your computer. One of the breakthrough feature of the Timelapse+ VIEW is the ability to watch a preview of the time lapse while
it is still being captured, all with a gentle wave in front of the device. This plays back what has been captured so far without
stopping the time lapse capture. This eliminates the uncertainty of whether the capture was complete or good enough. And
because activating the preview is touch-free, the worry of ruining a shot by rocking the camera is gone.

The smartphone app extends the experience even further. Ideal for long-term setups, the VIEW’s mobile app gives professionals
complete control over their camera. They can preview, make settings adjustments and even download images remotely.

The VIEW was designed with field professionals in mind. The touch-free gesture and the knob controls allow for remarkable ease
of use while wearing gloves or mittens and the rugged design of the VIEW makes it comfortable in almost every environment and
climate. It is dust proof, moisture resistant, and can handle the cold without any loss in performance. On top of that, its 16GB of
storage can be extended via the SD card slot and the battery life provides approximately 15+ hours of continuous run time (with
wifi on) and can be powered/charged via a micro-USB port during use.

How much does the Timelapse+ VIEW cost?

The early-bird backer pricing is $320 for one Timelapse+ VIEW. Following the Kickstarter launch, the retail price will be $380.
