camarush CA002 overview

  • 1Description

The Camarush Camalapse 4 is a portable turntable that provides an ideal solution for creating time-lapse videos or panoramic stills with cameras up to 5 lb. It has a 1/4"-20 camera screw on top and a 1/4"-20 socket on the bottom for a tripod, and it can also be used directly on a tabletop or other flat surface.

Based on a simple timer mechanism that needs no batteries, the Camalapse 4 is capable of panning 360° counterclockwise in 60 minutes. For clockwise panning you can hang the unit upside down, although this is only recommended for cameras weighing less than 1 lb. To double the panning speed, giving you 720° in 60 minutes or 360° in 30 minutes, you can stack two units together.

    camarush CA002 reviews

    Camalapse 4 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but not discretely The construction seems to be very sturdy with the Camalapse. One thing I didn't expect was how audible the timer's ticking would be. My hope was to use this in areas where I wanted to catch people acting normally. However, the loud ticking of the mechanism will definitely make the unit more noticable and likely make people stare directly at the camera, rather than carry on normally. Just a head's up if you plan on using this in a fairly quiet area where you don't want people to notice it. The heavier the load, the deeper the sound, so a very light camera or phone will make for a louder, higher pitched tick.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth your time I purchased 2 of these to perform horizontal + vertical pans with my gopro per the instructions from the manufacturer's website. Unfortunately, the units are so flimsy that they get stuck and won't 'tick' for more than a few minutes when turned sideways, not even with my gopro perfectly centered. I also found when using one unit normally, the speed isn't consistent - it noticeably speeds up & slows down when viewing the finished time lapse.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is handy The Camalapse has bee useful when doing some time lapse photography. I have tried it with a go pro camera just for fun in a snowstorm and I got some simple footage that works. I also tried it on my Sony a6000. I wouldn't recommend using a long lens. The base isn't that large. Also be aware as other posts have mentioned that the Camalapse is pretty loud with the tick tick tick noise. I would also suggest practicing a few times before doing a shoot so you see which way the base is rotating.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap piece of $*@#... BUT, happy w/ results Here's what you need to know...1) It's a cheap piece of $*@#.2) Surprisingly, it can produce some great results!3) The speed of the ticker is slightly different when it starts and stops vs. majority of the spinning... but it's very slight.4) It's pretty loud.5) For only $$, adding motion to your time-lapses is awesome!I'm going to purchase a second one.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as described Build quality is light and plastic-y -- as was expected for the price. Handled the weight of my Panasonic GH4 with 35-100mm lens with no problems. Have now shot a bunch of nice panning time-lapses with this. No complaints.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not wonderful My biggest complaint, is that this device only works in an upright position. Trying it in any other manner yields unusable results.
