Alpine Labs Michron
Advanced time-lapse device in a simple, affordable package
Intervalometers enable you to shoot image sequences over a set time, and are a feature of many Nikon SLRs. As such, until now there has really been no need for an external intervalometer. The Michron, however, brings additional intervalometer features that are above and beyond Nikon’s own, such as interval ramping (which adjusts the interval between shots at either end of the sequence), and exposure ramping (which does the same for exposure). There’s also a feature for shooting HDR images.
The Michron sits in the camera’s hot shoe and can be programmed from any iOS or Android mobile device that has the Michron app installed. The camera is connected via a cable, which is also required for the programming, as that can’t be done wirelessly, but the interface is simple to use and gives you both manual and preset shooting options. For a seemingly simple device it packs in lots of features, which are supported by an intuitive app.
