Some general advice. The trick to making a good iphone time lapse video is having you iphone in solid position when camera snaps. If the camera is moving when the picture is taken you will get a very blurry picture. (see this video which a good concept that has blurry shots that ruins the effect).
Using what is around you is best. Here is a nice little stand where the cardboard coffee heat protectors transmogrify into a nice little stand in no time and another project where a coat hanger and a couple of rubber bands also do the trick.
You own a $200 phone (really $400+ sans contract), its worth getting a proper stand for it. A couple of store bought stands/tripods:
- Joby GP1-M1EN Gorillapod – it attaches via suction cups and can be a bit sketchy at times, but definately work for the price (we have one).
- Telescope Lens & Stand – Havent used this one, but look awesome. If you have tried it would love to hear comments.
- Tripod Stand Holder for Camera Mobile Phone Cellphone – Another one that dont have, but looks solid.
The best for the money.
This one is a little dyi, but has been the most adaptable for us. We have taken the Ram iPhone cradle (and with two bolts and three nuts (and a piece off another adapter) make it something that can fit to any existing tripod mount. Most tripod mounts are Dual 1/4-20″ & 3/8″
The Zgrip. This for the film geek that wants to show off (i want one!!!), but for 299 it must come with the girl
