Shoot a 360-degree time lapse with your phone

Camera Accessories
There are lots of ways to go about shooting a time-lapse, but if you want yours to stand out from the crowd on Instagram and everywhere else on the Web, why not shoot a panoramic time-lapse? The set up is really simple, using a few household supplies. So you'll need a wind up kitchen timer. This one's from Ikea and it only cost a few bucks. You'll need a L-shaped brack like this. You can pick it up at the hardware store. You'll also need some adhesive. So I have tape and a command strip. You'll see how I use that in a second. I'll start by adhering my phone to the L-shaped bracket. For that I'm using the Command Strip so that it comes off easily. So, I'll put the Command Strip on one of the sides. [MUSIC] And, stick my phone to it. There we go. Now, all I have to do is put this on the kitchen timer and that's where the tape comes in. [MUSIC] That's your setup. It's really that simple. When you're ready to shoot your time lapse you have a lot of options. There is an app called Lapse It which is available for iOS and Android. And of course a lot of phones have built in time lapse options, but today I'm going to use Hyperlaps which is a new app from Instagram that lets me shoot up to 45 minutes of raw footage. So I've got Hyperlaps set up here. It's all secured on my kitchen timer so let's go out and shoot this time lapse. [MUSIC] [NOISE]
