HandlePod Camera Stabilization Is Ideal for Time Lapse Video

Time lapse is an amazing effect that takes smartphone video to a new level. It can be accomplished easily with a variety of apps such as Framlapse Pro for Android. This app allows complete control over frame intervals from any number of seconds down to fractions of a second. And it will shoot for a preset length of time or can be started and stopped manually.

HandlePod with the iStabilizer tripod adapter is ready to support the smartphone for time lapse video.

Of course it is impossible to hand hold the smartphone while shooting time lapse. Any slight movement creates a distracting jump in the video. The camera phone must be stabilized on a firm support in order to keep the camera steady. HandlePod plus a tripod adapter will keep the smartphone absolutely stable for rock solid time lapse video. Here the HandlePod was secured to a fence post and fitted with an iStabilizer tripod adapter to hold the smartphone. Subjects for time lapse video include anything that moves. In this example, clouds streak across the sky as waves crash on the beach below. Hikers and dog walkers rush along the trails of the Fort Funston recreation area in San Francisco.

Sky and sea are an ideal combination for time lapse video effects. But impressive vistas are not essential to capture the magic of time lapse. A passing storm with rapidly shifting clouds makes a fascinating subject. Sunsets, traffic patterns, moving crowds of people—all make visually appealing subjects for time laps effects.
