The Camera TimerDC iPhone App allows you to control your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch camera. It will let you start your Camera at a specific time. It will allow you to take up to 300 pictures and you may also specify the time between the pictures to be taken. We allow you to set the time between photos from .01 (1/100) of a second to 24 hours. It is the first App to allow this range. Once you have configured the settings, all functions start once you press the camera icon on the lower left hand side of the screen. Be sure to do this before handing the camera to the person taking the pictures or setting on a stand for your Time Lapse sequence. One you have completed taking your photos you may make a Video of them. You may create the Video multiple times varying the time between displaying the shots from between .01 (one tenth of a second) to 10 ( ten seconds).
This will allow you to get the effect you want with your Video.

Some practical uses are:
1.You are traveling and you want someone to take a picture for you. All you need to do is set the parameters you wish and hand your iPhone to the person who will take the picture. All they need to do is hold the camera and frame the shot. The photo(s) will start automatically after the pre-set delay. For example you want a picture of you and your SO or family with a nice landmark as the background. Just set the parameters of Camera TimerDC to start in 10 seconds and also to take 3 photos 2 seconds apart. Hand your iPhone to the person who will take the picture and tell them that all they need to do is frame the shot. The Camera TimerDC iPhone App will take a picture every 2 seconds after a delay of 10 seconds. So be sure to wait until all the pictures are taken. All 3 pictures will be saved to the camera roll and you can pick the best one or keep all 3.
2.You want to take some time lapse photos of a flower blooming or the movement of the stars at night. Just set the parameters and place the iPhone in a secure position using one of the many iPhone holders that are available. You may take as many pictures at any interval you want. If it is for an extended period just make sure your iPhone is plugged into a power outlet. For example set the Camera TimerDC parameters to start taking photo in 30 seconds and take a picture every 2 minutes until you take 100 pictures.
3. You want to create Video of your Time Lapse photos.
4.You want to take a family or other photo of a group of people and not be excluded from the picture.
Just set the parameters and put the camera in the proper position to frame the shot. Delay the first photo for enough time to get into the picture yourself. Note: On iOS6 make sure to take one test shot before taking multiple photos, since you will need to grant permission for Camera TimerDC to put photos to the camera roll. If you want to take a photo of a moving object. You may set the interval to less than a second, to capture the effect you want. Since each iPhone, iPad, and iPod have different capabilities and software loaded, you should experiment with the interval to get the desired results. You can use the second hand of a watch to test with to start.

Worked very well

I used this app to take photos while I proposed to my girlfriend and it worked very well. I'd give it five stars, but there are two improvements that seem like low hanging fruit to me:

1. More functionality around delaying the start. You can only delay up to 60 seconds. Allowing users to increase that, or more importantly select a start time, would be a great addition.

2. Make selecting number of photos easier. The app defaults to one photo and then you have to click a button to increase that number one by one. You can hold it to have it go up faster, but making that an editable field would be nice.

All in all, the app helped me a ton and added functionality to my phone that frankly, should be a part of iOS by default.

Amazing app!

I used this to also take photos of my proposal to my girlfriend. I set it up to take a picture every second for 660 pictures which is about 11 minutes of pics but it caught the whole progression of love and emotion. Way better than the one or two pics grabbed by a photographer. This is the way to go. But yourself a cheap tripod for your phone and you’re set!
