Creating a time lapse with gopro and ikea kitchen timer

Written by

My setting for the GoPro is 1 picture each 2 seconds for a 360° timelapse; This will result in a video of 1 minute.

If you want to make a partial timelapse (180°), take 1 picture every second

I glued the bottom of the kitchen timer on the removable spare shoe of my tripod, and on the top I glued a GoPro mount.

I used this:
