Note 9: How To Record Time Lapse Videos

Even the videos that you are filming with your Note 8 are nothing but a series of photos played together at a specific frame rate. Whether you decide to play with that frame rate to bring it to a higher or to a lower value, the result is what photography specialists call “time lapse”. Of course, like many other cool features of the Note 8, this one, although available to any user, was implemented so that anyone, with as little photography knowledge as possible, can make use of it.

In other words, you don’t really need to know precisely what time lapse videos are or how they work. You just need to be curious enough to want to try it and test the available options from your camera app. As a hint, we suggest you’re going to use it when trying to record people or cars, any moving objects and, why not, the fascinating clouds. Needless to say, all you need is already there; don’t expect to have to install a third-party app for this purpose. Simply look for the Hyperlapse mode within the settings of the Camera app.
