The addition of movement to time-lapse adds another dimension going beyond what products like
gentLED-AUTO can achieve on its own.
We showcase here two companies producing products
that control your timelapse camera and movement together -
however gentLED products can still make a difference.
Alpine Technologies manufacture Radian, a controller that
pans / rotates the camera around a compact unit can can be tripod mounted.
Dynamic Perception manufacture tracks / dollys and controllers
that linearly move the camera and take the picture.
Both these solutions provide a wired camera control, however
this limits the camera selection to one with a shutter release socket.
With the addition of gentLED-TRIGGER these products can also
be used with Cameras with IR shutter release (like Sony's NEX series) or with Camcorders (most can take a PHOTO
with an IR trigger). All you need is a stereo 3/32" TRS / 2.5mm jack lead to connect the
camera shutter release on the product to the gentLED-TRIGGER.
With equipment tied up for long periods for time-lapse, and concerns over mechanical wear on SLR
cameras, maybe you dont need to tie-up and wear out a dSLR or SLR camera?
gentLED-TRIGGER extends the use of systems from
Alpine Technologies and
to bridge cameras and camcorders that can also produce high quality stills of high quality
for HD video output.
