The Radian makes time-lapse photography affordable

This simple device allows you to shoot amazing time-lapse sequences on your dSLR or ILC with the help of your smartphone.

The Radian was created to let users capture moving time lapses. It can rotate from side to side, tilt up and down, and be adjusted to move at different speeds for more creative applications. For the uninitiated, time lapses are photos taken at preset intervals that are stitched together to make it appear as though time has been sped up.

Built to sit comfortably on a flat surface -- acting as a stabilized platform, too -- the Radian can be controlled with an app that lets shutterbugs adjust the device's titling angle, total shooting time, and interval time without having to tether their smartphone.

The Radian is compatible with any dSLR with a trigger release output (it supports up to 15 pounds) and can be paired with iPhones and Android handsets.

Additionally, the gadget is powered by an internal, rechargeable li ion battery and can be charged by any external USB charger. It plays well with other videography accessories, too, as it can be mounted on tripods, motorized dollies, and sliders.

Available on the crowd-sourcing site Kickstarter, the Radian, along with a camera cable and USB charger, can be had for $150. It even comes with a free T-shirt and shipping.
