How to shoot time lapse video with iPhone:

Time lapse videos show us fantastically moving landscape or a catastrophic natural situation in just a few seconds or minutes rather than plenty of hours. While you can shoot time lapse video with your iPhone using any app from iOS App Store, such apps usually cost a few good bucks.

However, if you have always yearned to shoot time lapse video for free, seems like Apple has taken time out to facilitate you. In the latest iOS 8 update, among a barrage of new features and enhancements, Apple has introduced a new option in your stock camera app of iOS 8 to shoot time lapse video. Time-lapse photography was definitely never this easy (and seems like it would be everywhere too like images and Instagram these days).

Shooting at dynamically selected intervals, iOS 8 stock camera feature lets you shoot time-lapse videos and turn it into sweet 30 seconds small videos. To start your time-lapse photography journey, simply open iOS 8 Camera and tap on Time-Lapse > tap on shutter to start the shooting.

When you want to finish recording, simply tap on the recorder again and your video will automatically crunch into a few seconds long. The video will then be saved in to your camera roll. Just make sure you use a tripod or some other arrangement to fix your iPhone as it movements or disturbances will kill the entire experience.
