In this week’s DIY GoPro post, you’ll learn how to make a rotating time lapse base for your GoPro camera.
But first, why would you want your time lapse to rotate? When the camera is moving, it can make even an otherwise boring time lapse more interesting. Here’s an example.
The DIY tutorial is below this video.

Okay, so let’s do this.
To do this project, you’ll need:
DIY GoPro Rotating Time Lapse Base (with an Egg Timer)
Alternative to DIY GoPro Time Lapse Mount
It comes with the top/bottom tripod mounts and is marked off in 4 – 15 minute increments. It rotates a full 360 degrees in 1 hour.
It is center-weighted and will support cameras up to 5 pounds.
See the Camalapse4 on Amazon
After seeing the video, I’m going to make one of these for myself. I’ll be on the lookout for a similar egg timer here in Canada.
