Time-lapse video can be stunningly beautiful, or simply amusing, but without specialized equipment, they're somewhat difficult to create. But a new digital time-lapse camera available from Photojojo makes it easy and worry-free.
This bright blue pod-shaped camera is weather-resistant, so you can leave it outside to capture the snow falling or the garden growing. The camera's lens can focus at standard or macro distance. It takes pictures at interval settings ranging from 1 second to 24 hours, with film lengths depending on how many pictures you take (the required 4 AA batteries will last for 38 hours at the fastest setting, up to 200 days at the slowest). There are six default settings, and you can create a custom setting for any period from 5 seconds to 12 hours.
The most intriguing feature about this camera is that it does all the work of putting your JPEG images together for you. No more long and tedious stitching in video programs — your series of images is automatically saved as an AVI file, ready to watch or upload to YouTube.
