GBTimelapse is a Windows application for the capture of time-lapse sequences using a Canon PowerShot Camera connected to a computer by a USB cable. The camera's settings are changed and images are captured under software control.
December 27, 2006 -- Granite Bay Software announces the availability of GBTimelapse, a remote capture program for Canon PowerShot cameras and Windows 98/ME/2000/XP.
If you have a Canon PowerShot digital camera, you can create interesting and beautiful time-lapse high-definition videos. You aren't limited to the low resolution of a standard-definition video camera or web camera. Whether you are creating corporate videos or home movies you can use time-lapse to film clouds, people, traffic or anything that involves movement. To see some examples, take a look at the time-lapse video gallery at http://www.granitebaysoftware.com
GBTimelapse controls a Canon PowerShot Camera connected to your computer by a USB cable. The camera's settings are changed and a series of images is captured automatically using the computer rather than the camera controls. The images can be gathered while the camera and computer are left unattended. You will need a video editing program (such as QuickTime) to combine the time-lapse images into a video.
GBTimelapse works with all 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.
Advanced features not found in any other remote capture programs include, the ability to change camera settings on the fly during a time-lapse session, the display of a live time-lapse movie preview, and the ability to start or stop a session at set times each day or relative to the local sunrise or sunset times.
A fully functional demo is available to the public at http://www.granitebaysoftware.com. Program registration is only US$49.00, and may be completed from the company's web site.
