No others have done it before, this is just my version that i can throw in a suitcase and use for preroll at events that look good in timelapse. Normally i leave a $2000 camera sitting unattended for a few hours and don't want to risk"" loosing"" it any more, so the Gopro is expendable. Plus the wide angle is perfect for this application as is the fixed focus and slow exposure changes.

Timelapse images from DLSR's flicker a lot, the Gopro is more forgiving.

Brilliant! I would like to make the same gizmo. :)

Where can I find this egg timer? Is it mechanical wind or battery powered?

PS: One photo every 2 seconds or 2 photos every second? How did you do that? Software upgrade? :D

The GoPro will slow pan 360 degrees in 1 hour. Set to 1 photos per 2 second it makes a smooth panning 360 degree timelapse movie. Very cool effect.

Crazy. I made something very similar with the exact same egg timer from Amazon. I like what you've done with putting a mini tri-pod head on this, and a suction cup for a base. Mine has a standard screw on the top for the GoPro Tripod adapter, and standard threads at the bottom to mount to any tripod, lightstand, gorrilla pod, etc. I usually mount mine on a light stand to get some elevation, and the wide-angle of the goPro makes great time lapses.


Here are a couple of examples of mine using this device:


This one the panning section of the wedding isn't until the end of the movie.

I ordered the egg and made mine yesterday. I made a 360 time lapse video this morning and it was perfect. THANKS!
