Lightlapse is the first app that allows you to capture day to night Time-Lapses on your DSLR or Mirrorless camera. You no longer need a $400 piece of hardware to capture the “Holy Grail” of time-lapses. All you need is your phone, camera, and a great composition.
Lightlapse supports most Canon, Sony, and Nikon cameras that are Wifi enabled and connecting is extremely simple.
Once connected, all you have to do is expose your shot and set how long you want to run for. After you time-lapse has started you can sit back and watch a preview of it as it progresses and even share it after it’s complete.
Best of all, when you upgrade Lightlapse to remove the restrictions you gain access to our editing plugins for Lightroom and Photoshop to process your images before posting.
Update! We've added the ability to "pinch-to-zoom" on the main camera preview image. We have also fixed a bug that was affecting some users when capturing night-to-day time-lapses.
Ratings and Reviews
2 stars for the idea
The idea that an app can control full settings for a day to night or night to day time lapse, brilliant. Execution, not so much.
The fact that the app AND phone have to be open and on the entire time the time-lapse is going is horrible. If I plan on doing a 3 hour timelapse my phone not only needs to be right next to the rhino and camera but display has to be on the entire time? My suggestion would be to have an option to turn off the live preview this might allow the phone to fall asleep and not disrupt the time-lapse.
Also, it has controls for ISO, shutter and interval but anytime I change these it defaults back to where the app thinks it should be. I switch on “classic” mode and adjust interval to be say 4 seconds with a shutter speed of 1-2 seconds and the app rolls back to like 40 seconds. If I am trying to capture certain movements I don’t want 40 seconds in between each shot. This happens with most of the controls. Every time I slide something where I want it the app just rolls the adjustments back somewhere else. This has been the most frustrating part about this app.
The RŌV motion app is amazing! I’ve been using that but trying to make live adjustments while the rhino is sliding is impossible this is where I was hoping this app would fit in but sadly it’s not.
I hope with future updates these will be fixed otherwise I’ll look for other apps to control the camera.
I setup the app with the RŌV Pro for a nightlapse. It started fine and I walked away from it for the 2 hours it needed for the lapse. I should have checked on it more often... the app showed the dreaded “Uh Oh” message and the Rov didn’t move at all. I got a time lapse but no movement. I really dislike having to leave my phone on and near the device to use it. First impressions are not satisfying at this point. I will continue to test and update my review.
Work great with my lumix gx85
