Camalapse, The Clockwork Timelapse Timer For You iPhone

Camalapse, The Clockwork Timelapse Timer For You iPhone

The Camalapse timer runs like clockwork. Wait... What?

Camalapse is short for “camel prolapse,” although oddly it has nothing to do with either ungulate mammals or slipping organs. Instead, the Camalapse is a clockwork stand for your camera which takes 360˚ time-lapse sequences.

The Camalapse works like a kitchen timer (hell, you could probably use it as a kitchen timer): you twist it to set a time, set it down and then set the iPhone on top using your tripod adapter of choice. You’ll need to use it with a time-lapse app, but there are plenty of these in the app store.

And that’s it. The timer rotates 360˚ in an hour, or 90˚ in 15 minutes, or 4˚ per minute. If you want to speed up or slow down the time-lapse sequence, then you can do that in software, choosing the interval between photos to get the speed you like.

The Camalapse will cost you $25, and can be had with the Glif iPhone tripod stand for $45. Or you could just head to Ikea and buy an actual kitchen timer.
