Time lapse photography

RamperPro firmware 3041 is available - Shuswap release

ElysiaVisuals is happy to announce the release of RamperPro firmware version 3041. This is an exciting release that greatly enhances the capabilities of the RamperPro time lapse controller.

The RamperPro is now able to ramp unattended over 21 stops during a sunset or a sunrise. This is accomplished by our own algorithm where we use both the histogram analysis mode and an algorithm that predicts how fast the RamperPro should ramp to keep up with changing light conditions.

The RamperPro now supports the Nikon D810

You can now combine the best to both worlds. The stunning Nikon D810 is now officially supported by the best timelapse controller on the market, the RamperPro by ElysiaVisuals.

The new RamperPro firmware 3045 supports the Panasonic GH4 and ND filters

We have just release the latest 3045 firmware for our unrivaled RamperPro time lapse controller. This new firmware now includes full support for the mirror less Panasonic GH4 camera. This is the first non Nikon or Canon camera that can be used with the RamperPro. A big advantage of the GH4 is that is doesn't feature a mechanical shutter. This makes this camera ideal for time lapse photography because there is no shutter wear.

The RamperPro now has a new highly accurate light sensor algorithm

We are very happy to announce a new highly advanced light sensor algorithm for our RamperPro timelapse controller. We already included a few important modifications in the previous firmware; but we were able to improve the firmware even more. The new light sensor firmware is very capable of really following a sunset by combining the new light sensor algorithm and the histogram analysis of the RamperPro.

RamperPro firmware 3025 is available - La Palma release

Today we released a new major firmware version for our advanced RamperPro timelapse controller. We took the RamperPro to La Palma where we had the ability to really test the unit to the edge of its' capabilities. The results of these tests have resulted to the "La Palma" release of the RamperPro firmware. We have also added many requests from our customers. Please keep sending us feature requests!

RamperPro development is done. Pre sales has been started

Just a very short message about the RamperPro. We are very happy to announce that the development of the RamperPro is finished. We have finished the electronics and the software has reached a stable version 1.0. Production will start in January and we will ship the first units in February. Pre order now if you want to be sure that you can get a unit from the first production run!

RamperPro User Manual

Classic ramping solutions worked by using bulb ramping. The camera is set to bulb and the bulb time is accurately controlled by the time lapse controller. This gives a limited use because you cannot use fast shutter speeds or bulb times faster than approximately 0.3 seconds. Classic bulb ramping cannot be done with a Nikon because you cannot achieve any desired bulb speeds because Nikon uses discrete steps in bulb.

Here the RamperPro steps in. You can use any desired shutter speed or any desired bulb speed to create ramping sequences. The camera is automatically controlled via USB by the controller. That makes it possible to automatically shift the ISO during your shoot. The RamperPro can therefore easily ramp over 20 stops from bright day light to stars. We like to talk about exposure ramping and not about bulb ramping because you are not limited to bulb mode when you use the RamperPro.

The ElysiaVisuals RamperPro time lapse controller

The history of the ElysiaVisuals RamperPro time lapse controller started in 2011. The general consensus at that time was that it is not possible to make good sunset time lapse movie with a Nikon camera. These movies are made by ramping the exposure time of the camera. Its getting darker but the exposure is made longer in small steps which results day to night transitions. The same is true the other way around for sun rises. Classic ramping solutions worked by using bulb ramping. The camera is set to bulb and the bulb time is accurately controlled by the time lapse controller.
