Catching a flower bloom on video used to be a domain of highly specialized photographers like those with the National Geographic. Now ordinary point-and-shooters like you and I may now have the chance to also document scenes like the tide rising, a flower blooming, clouds passing by or even traffic movement.
Granite Bay Software has announced its GBTimelapse, a Windows application that can capture time-lapse sequences using a Canon PowerShot camera connected to a computer by a USB cable. The images are captured under software control, and the camera can change its settings as each image is shot.
Now, you donâ€™t have to be limited by the low-res video capability of your digital camera. You can shoot each sequence in high resolution. Instead of low resolution you can capture high resolution images and create high-definition video files.
GBTimelapse works with all Canon PowerShot cameras that support remote capture including the Pro Series, G-Series, A-Series and S-Series but not some of the smaller SD Series cameras.
