About Our Time Lapse Cameras
Our camera technology is the best long term time lapse currently available on the market and as technical advances are achieved we ensure that it's readily available to you in our Lobster Pots.
4K or 8K Resolution
Our 8K cameras are the highest resolution monitored time lapse cameras available. Lobster Pictures are proud to be the first company to have deployed this technology. The new Super High Vision 8K standard will not be available domestically until 2024 - but we've been shooting it since 2012. This is the absolute highest quality and resolution that video can be today - 16 times the frame rate of HD. When shot in 8K resolution, it enables cropping into sections of the video, with resolution remaining at a high level.
Nikon or Canon
We control our own platform, all developed in-house — so we can use any type of DSLR camera from Nikon, Canon or Sony on the Lobster Vision system.
We've developed a huge range of standard mounting solutions for our time lapse cameras, to position our Lobster Pots safely and effectively on every conceivable site - from ships and castles, to sloping roofs. When one of our standard mounts isn't suitable, we design a bespoke solution. Exclusive designs from Lobster Pictures gives you confidence that you’re in safe hands.
Landscape or Portrait
Very tall buildings don't work particularly well in 'landscape' style, and vertical screens are becoming more popular. We can now mount cameras in portrait mode without any external changes.
We've developed a standard solar and wind unit to power Lobster Pots off-grid - and tested it through the worst of British winters. With more than enough spare capacity and full remote system monitoring, this means we can install time lapse equipment in even more places than before.
Our world-beating time lapse viewing platform Lobster Vision is so much more than just an image archive. The open-standard Lobster Vision API allows you to integrate deeply with your project management system, BIM software and website. See all the tools and features that come as standard here.
All of this development is for a reason: we want you to have the best possible time lapse systems for the best possible results.
