It does the job.
on January 9, 2013
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.
-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.
-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.
-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.
