Product Description

The camalapse can help you create panning time-lapse videos or panoramic images with your ultra compact digital camera. Capture up to 360°/60min of pictures or video with the camalapse. This 3rd generation design includes new metal components to attach cameras and tripods to, ensuring a long product life, and comes in a professional black color.

Get cool b-roll footage by setting up your GoPro, Drift Contour or other ultra compact digital cameras on the camalapse and capture up to 360 degrees of footage over an hour. Simply attach your camera to the top of the camalapse via a tripod adapter (if necessary) and either attach the camalapse to a tripod or set on a low/flat/stable surface. Point your camera where you would like the video to end and while firmly holding the bottom half of the camalapse, twist the top portion of the camalapse so that the camera is pointed towards your starting point. Click record and you are all set. (tripod, camera and tripod adapter not included - shown in pictures for example only - see the compatible parts tab to purchase the appropriate adapter if needed). Due to the weight/balance and location of the tripod mounts on various cameras, we can't recommend the camalapse for all cameras. However, you might find that if your camera is small, lightweight (less than 16oz/450g/1lb) and fairly center balanced, the camalapse may work for your particular camera.

The camalapse weighs about 2.4 ounces and measures about 2 inches high by about 2.5 inches wide. Does NOT work with DSLR cameras.

I don't understand why there are reviews complaining about this not supporting a heavy camera when the product description clearly states it's used only for "small, lightweight" cameras. Works perfectly fine with my GoPro.

Pros:

-Lightweight.

-Black matte finish that looks well with the GoPro.

-Has a tripod thread adapter on the bottom-side to easily screw in a tripod/monopod .

-Conveniently has 15-minute intervals (along with the range of degrees) marked off on the side to help measure the length you want to record.

Cons:

-Feels super cheap and fragile in my hands. Other than the metal threading for the tripods, this thing is all cheap plastic.

-Creates a loud ticking noise, which makes me feel like I paid for an kitchen timer.

-Smaller than I expected.

-Over priced.

Also:

-Packaging could of been way better. Arrived in a flimsy box inside of a packaging envelope. Not to be bias towards the product, just a bad choice on the sellers part. Would have preferred in a more secure box to be shipped in.

I've only had the Camalapse 3 for a day. If you plan on using this with your GoPro, you'll need a tripod mount. Which you can pick up for ~$5 on eBay. I plan on taking it out in the wild and testing it's endurance within the next week.

Overall, it does it's job. I wanted a product that could perform time lapse for me, and this does it. For how long, though? We'll see, and I'll be sure to keep you guys updated.

I have been able to use this 8 times now for various scenes (music fest, landscapes, beach, traffic). The panning is smooth, so smooth it can be used in video mode.

Unit is durable, quiet and well made, and small enough to fit in my daily gear bag. I take it everywhere!

Used with Canon S95, GoPro Hero 2, GoPro Hero 3 (black)

Took this on a 7 Day Caribbean Cruise, we were not able to make it to the beach as planned, but I did mount the Camalapse on a small tripod with my GoPro 3 Black. Was able to get some incredible shots with the panning motion, and the time lapse feature of the camera set to 1 second.

There's not much I can say about this item. It does what it's designed to do. Zero complaints. It requires a minimum of 20 characters so I'm going to keep typing until it lets me go.

While this certainly will not rotate a DSLR with fat heavy lens, it will do point and shoots and gropro camera perfectly. Which is what it's made for. You -can- do smaller DSLRs like a Canon Rebel and a small kit lens like a 18-55 with no battery grip. But that will be the limit.

I purchased a Camalapse a few weeks back, and couldn't wait to give it a try. In my test runs so far, I haven't been as impressed as I anticipated. I have only put my GoPro Hero 2 on it, and ran a couple of test runs, or spins I should say, and I've noticed on a few occasions it doesn't complete the timed cycle, and stops about halfway through. I've had to give it a slight turn in the direction it was headed, and then it starts ticking/turning again on its own. I don't think my Hero 2 weighs enough for it to struggle in its revolutions. I don't have time to hover over this little device during time lapse captures, anticipating it getting hung up again. It's a novel tool to have in my gear bag, but not quite as effective as I had hoped it would be.

Using to do motion timelapse with GoPro 3. I actually made one of these out of a cheap egg timer. I upgraded to this since I will be using with clients and want a clean design not the DYI look. Thanks for such a great product.

Also side note* DSLR users, this will not work very well because of the weight. If you have a small point and shoot camera that does timelapse it will probable work fine.

The camalapse works exactly as expected. I use it with both my iPhone/GLIF and my GoPro. I have seen other reviewers say it doesnt work with heavier cameras but I guess they didnt read the description. It is light weight but well made with metal pieces on the top and bottom for my Joby gorillapod.

This idea is a really great, cost-effective method for achieving good, solid results. Panoramic time lapses or panning video work great. The only negatives are that this it can only move in one direction -- counter-clockwise (right to left), and that this is basically a cleverly constructed $9 kitchen timer which sells for $60. It's still more cost-effective than the super-expensive pro solutions available though, and "suspending the unit upside-down" will solve the directional issue. I would recommend this to any photographer who has a small camera. Great match with a GoPro.
