How-to DIY tripod to use with Timelapser.


Timelapser lets you create time-lapse videos in one step on your iPhone (all generations), even if you don’t have a new iPhone 3gs with video!

Make videos on ANY iPhone!

Timelapser creates movie files for you and stores them in your photo library or movies vault without overloading your photo library with tons of images or requiring you to create your own movies on a separate computer.

Features include:

Stop-Motion mode for manual capturing

Auto-assembling of movies

Email your time-lapse movies directly from the app

Set your own compression settings

Set your own capture settings: capture multiple frames a second or once every 30 minutes!

Choose between creating a movie of your time lapse images or save the full-res images directly to your photo library

Instant playback of your time-lapse movies with one touch

Built with a slick user interface and easy to use controls this app is a must have for any iPhone owner.

To avoid interruptions turn on airplane mode, so a call won't stop your filming. If you don't want the shutter sound, set the ringer to silent. Don't lock your phone, because that will interrupt recording.

If you have any questions or concerns with Timelapser please send us an email or use our forum. If you love this app please consider leaving a positive review.
