Bramping

19 Nov 2012 6:51PM   Views : 3727 Unique : 727

Bramping or Bulb Ramping is the shooting of a timelapse with the shutter speed getting shorter or longer to accomodate the changing light levels.

I was using the Triggertrap app and dongle for the iPhone for this video. This timelapse consisits of 350 seperate photographs. At the start of the timelapse the camera was set to a 1.7s exposure the final image was 1/15s. Unfortunately the camera took a couple of knocks and I was also shooting through a very grubby window which didn't help.

I can see many applications for this altough it will take a little practice for the settings, I had to adjust the aperture on the camera to prevent the sky blowing out on a couple of occasions, but for a first test, I'm quite happy.

Hi Skibby, there is an android version available. Just do a search for Triggertrap. It is a great app but you also need a dongle. Smile

Quite nice, I like this kind of thing. Didn't know you could do it with an iPhone.

Presumably you can switch the telephone off whilst doing this as I assume it would otherwise vibrate and cause " camera " shake if somebody called / text messaged you ?

Hi Conrad, I should clarify that the iPhone is connected to a camera via a dongle. The Triggertrap app then sends messages via the dongle to the camera

Good point Jeff, I'm not sure what would happen if you had a call, the best solution would therefore be to buy an iPad and use that Grin
