Time lapse photography has long since been a favorite of mine. I’ve attempted several projects, such as, watching a vine grow outside my kitchen window for 2 days and watching myself set up an inflatable pool. Both of these attempts, while successful were very complicated. I have a program on my computer (I run Ubuntu Linux) called Cheese that can do time lapse, but the computer needs to be carted around and the video is only as good as the web cam. Also, my old Kodak P850 could do time lapse, but it left the task of stitching the photos together up to me.
This past weekend, I found an app called Lapse It for Android that turns your Android device into a little, portable time lapse studio. I went ahead and spent the $1.99 for the Pro version, which unlocks the full potential of your cameras resolution. Next I need a tripod mount for my phone, so I don’t need to use the homemade cardboard & electrical tape stand that I uses for this. This time lapse was captured with my LG Esteem, which has a 5MP camera.
