Focus ramping intervalometer Timelapse+ View goes on sale
US accessories manufacturer Timelapse+ has announced that its latest on-camera timelapse controller is now on general sale. The Timelapse+ View allows photographers to program complex timelapse sequences and preview them as they happen on its built-in monitor. The controller can itself be controlled via a smartphone app which will also display the progress of a shoot as it is recorded.
Users can select start and end points for focus shifts during the timelapse sequence and determine over how many shots the changes will take place, and the device automatically shifts the focus of the attached camera’s lens during the shoot. Gesture detection allows previews to be activated without the photographer having to actually touch the set-up.
The company says that View also can be connected by Bluetooth to the Dynamic Perception NMX motion controller for moving-camera shots, and the files created are fully compatible with timelapse software LRTimelapse. The device supports a range of DSLR cameras from Canon, Nikon and Sony and costs $399.

Auto ramping intervalometer enables you to preview your timelapse
Time lapse hardware maker Timelapse+ announced today that after a successful KickStarter campaign, manufacturing for the second batch has already begun, with shipment expected to be around mid-January.

The VIEW is a breakthrough intervalometer for cinematographers and photographers that allows for automatic bulb ramping, live time lapse preview -- watched either on the VIEW or a smartphone – and touch-free gesture controls. Since the end of the KickStarter campaign, Timelapse+ has been actively adding new features and working with other vendors to include third-party integrations to the VIEW.
The VIEW now has integrations to automatically connects to the Dynamic Perception NMX motion slider via Bluetooth and LRTimelapse support added to XMP data.
Additional new features include:
- Automatically optimizes buffer time during ramping
- Configurable ISO and shutter speed limits for auto ramping
