After finishing the Android Camera App Review entry, I bought Vignette. One of the many features of the application is time-lapse photography. Yesterday I set up the Galaxy Tab in the window sill and went to the gym. Three hours later, the camera had shot 1440 pictures that I slapped together in Windows Live Movie Maker and this is the end result.

Not too bad, except for a few details. The end result at Vimeo gets stretched. The preview image is fine, but the video is not. I have no idea why. Also, the camera really can’t cope with the changing light conditions, but that is to be expected. It’s not high quality optics. The last little annoyance is my fault: Vignette was configured to handle the white balance by itself, something that results in some rather funky color changes towards the end of the video.

Still, I think the video is all right all things considered.
