And then I modded a folding microphone stand by adding a brass tripod mount adapter.
The result is a small, stable, time-lapse filming rig.
Great for filming first light at Ramasaig cliff on the Isle of Skye.
This is a low-resolution 'proof of concept' version.
The footage is not color-corrected or tweaked in any way.
This kind of filmography is made from hundreds of 11 megapixel still images like this one.
If you set the GoPro to take a photo every two seconds then you can produce one second of animation footage for every minute on the timer. Pretty simple setup.
