Product Description

Timelapse+ VIEW Intervalometer Intro Video from Elijah Parker on Vimeo.

Feature Overview:
Preview your time-lapse at 24/30fps on the VIEW device or from your phone, even while the time-lapse is still recording!
Use the VIEW's wifi hotspot feature to setup and preview your time-lapse and even stream live view and adjust focus from your phone

  • In addition to the user interface, the camera interface and physical setup is also simplified as much as possible. It has an integrated hotshoe mount that can read the flash sync, eliminating the need to carry and extra cable for that. It also has a full-size USB host port for connecting the camera, so for most applications only a single USB cable is needed.
  • The long-lasting built-in battery also simplifies setup (and eliminates the concern of a cable disconnecting). And if it needs more power during a time-lapse, you can always plug in external power via a micro-USB connection.
  • Connect the VIEW to the internet via wifi and have full control from anywhere in the world! Perfect for long-term setups -- check, reconfigure, download images, and even setup motion from anywhere you are. This is an optional service provided via view.tl --$60/year (planned)
  • Automatic day-to-night and night-to-day or even 24 hour with no setup needed -- just press start! The holy grail of time-lapse is simpler than ever before.
  • Keyframe Focus Ramping with Nikon and Canon, with an interactive liveview setup
  • Built for the field -- withstands temperature extremes, 15+ hour battery life, designed to be used with gloves as well as touch-free gesture control so you can access it while a time-lapse is running without worrying about moving the camera
  • Auxiliary port for syncronizing shoot-move-shoot capabilites with most motion systems (best with just a fixed interval)
  • Full integration with Dynamic Perception's NMX controller for keyframed multi-axis setups that are synchronized with focus & interval, even variable intervals
Supported Cameras
  • Canon DSLRs
  • Nikon DSLRs
  • Sony Alpha Mirrorless
More will likely be added in the future, but at a minimum the above will all be fully supported at the time of shipment.

Software-wise, the system runs Debian Linux and uses a collection of small low-level c libraries and drivers tied together at a higher level by NodeJS. This will make it easy for advanced users to extend custom functionality that leverages the power of the underlying hardware by writing simple plugins in Javascript. E.g., you could easily swap out ramping algorithms, etc (for those interested). If this isn't for you -- don't worry -- you don't need to be technical to use it.
