Not Durable Review by Alex
Rating
Just received the camalapse to use for panning and I was very upset to see that the tripod mount on the top was made of plastic. Plastic?!?! I cant think of another accessories I have ever come across that did not have a metal threading. Would it have been that hard for them to put a metal screw on the top so it was more durable.

Feeling like I could have made a better more durable one for cheaper.

Serves its function, but its very brittle and I dont expect it to last long before it breaks. (Posted on 9/5/12)
Excellent Service Review by Sam

I bought one of these a few weeks ago for some time-lapse photos. I overtightened the camera to the base and broke the first time I used it :( Fortunately I as able to get it replaced from point of view cameras. There customer service was quick to help me and provided more than I ever expected. I've since been using the replacement without any problems, just have to be sure not to over tighten as it does have plastic threads. (Posted on 6/26/12)
Poor quality Review by motorcycledeluxe.com

I bought one and mounted the GoPro and when I removed it the thread snapped clean off it! Really unimpressed by the quality, it's made of cheap brittle plastic. I didn't even tighten it that much (I know there are warnings). I've now got a redundant tripod mount for the GoPro as well as an egg timer with no bell. For the money, I was expecting something that would at least take some abuse in the camera bag and was hoping to get some use out of it.

I'm really disappointed! (Posted on 6/13/12)
Works As Described Not As Shown Review by Dave B

The Camalapse is basically a smooth running, horizontal wind-up kitchen timer with a tripod mount that does one full rotation in one hour. Combine this with the time lapse capabilities of the Hero2 and you can recreate those smooth pans of clouds rushing over a landscape. It is a clever solution and is light weight.

The Camalapse product video is deceptive. Camalapse only winds clockwise and rotates counterclockwise yet 2 of the 4 sample clips on their product video shows rotation of left to right. Camarush's response is that these clips were reversed in editing which won't do for many uses. For example, if you want to track the movement of the sun and clouds across the sky, you would have to orient the camera northward for a left to right rotation to work. When reversing the video sequence won't work, you have to suspend Camalapse and camera upside down and flip the video vertically (a Hero2 setting option or do it in editing). If you use a tripod that can invert the center shaft, you are limited to a rotational angle between the tripod legs. If your tripod can mount the center shaft horizontally, you can use enough mounts to rotate 90 degrees and suspend the Camalapse upside-down that way. You could also make a bar that threads into the top of a typical tripod that lets you offset the Camalapse enough to mount the camera upside down and suspend it. Just take care to not do this on a small tripod where you shift the weight to the tipping point. To prevent that, you could offset a longer bar to act as a counter balance.

My point is that they went to great lengths to exaggerate what the Camalapse can do without disclosing the limitation so I can't give them 5 stars.
