From creative to industrial applications, there are many uses for time-lapse photography. But one of the challenges facing this type of imaging is that it can be difficult to capture the entirety of a time-lapse scene. Usually, time-lapse cameras are placed in a static location, offering only one perspective on the action.
Brinno hopes to change that with its new ART 200 Pan Lapse Camera Stand. This stand allows users to affix either a camera or a smartphone to its top. Then, the base swivels from left-to-right, offering up to 360 degrees of smooth motion. Perfect for capturing either a portion of an area or an entire landscape.
The Pan Lapse Camera Stand has a standard built-in 1/4-inch mounting screw for cameras or an included clip for use with smartphones. In order to set up the stand, just use Brinno’s free smartphone app that syncs with the stand. With the app, users can customize variables like panning speed, sweep angle, and timing. The stand communicates with smartphones via Bluetooth and is powered by 2 AAA batteries that can last 48 hours to 30 days, depending on the camera weight and the panning speed.
The ART 200 is currently on display during CES 2016, at Brinno’s booth at the South Hall, Level 1, booth #22007.
