There’s nothing like a perfect transition from daylight to a starry sky; the blue sky of day drops out and dissolves into the depth of the emerging night sky. This is known as the “Holy Grail” of time-lapse photography, and has been a very difficult and technical pursuit.
When Timelapse+ founder Elijah Parker got started in time-lapse, this was immediately a passion. The Original Timelapse+ Intervalometer was the first device on the market to automate night to day time-lapse using a light sensor and advanced algorithms. Building on that, the new VIEW Intervalometer is more advanced and analyzes each image for precise results across any range of exposure.
Simply press start and let it follow the changes in light from day to night and even back again, no need to fuss with settings or monitor it along the way.
The results are significantly better and smoother then the camera’s aperture priority mode since by analyzing each image it can achieve a proper exposure for the Milky Way even when ramping from noon sun, while at the same time ignoring sudden changes such as from headlights.
