Time-lapse photos can be interesting, and if you have a rig to make your camera pan, all the better. You could buy a compact rig like this “Camalapse” model for around $30, but since this is DIYTripods, not “Buy It Yourself Tripods,” we’ve got a cheaper solution for you.
All you really need to make panning time-lapse videos is an egg timer. It of course helps if you have a 3D printer to make your adapter, but I’d be willing to bet there’s an easier, if not better way.
I wasn’t able to find the particular timer pictured, but this model from Amazon should work excellently for DIY use since the top is flat.
