Grab some free camera fun with LapseLab HD for BlackBerry 10

By James Richardson on 28 Sep 2013 05:24 am EDT

LapseLab HD for BlackBerry 10 is a super camera application that will allow you to take a number of photos in quick succession and then the app will convert them into a video file with a higher frame rate - resulting in a time lapse video of images. 

Not only is the app free but it's also available for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones, so this one should go down rather well with the community. There are a ton of options within the app in terms of how many photos you take and the time between them. In the video above - the demo one I shot was 61 images with one photo being taken every second, but you can adjust to you own personal preference. 

Once you select from the three different modes available and adjust the time settings it's just a case of tapping the camera tab and you're set to start shooting. Once you are finished you'll be presented with a share option and the finished product will automatically be saved in the videos folder on your BlackBerry 

With LapseLab HD being free I'd urge you to go and have some fun with it. What have you got to lose? 

Full features include: 

  • 6 lapse ways: duration, from-to time range, from with number of shoots, to time, just number of shots, stop motion (take shots manually)
  • timestamp overlay on resulting video 
  • shutter sound on/off 
  • video output resolution at 480p, 720p or 1080p
  • video output rate from 1 to 25 frames per second
  • landscape and portrait mode supported 
  • Viewfinder can be hidden to reduce battery drain 
  • Take shots and join them later

Grab some free camera fun with LapseLab HD for BlackBerry 10


Missleading saying it's free , it's a "Freemium" App allowing 100 shots and video output of 480p . Presumably the "This application contains items for sale" means you pay after the initial 100 shots , though it doesn't say how much in the App description.......

i got it! you can use free limited to 100 shot 420 any time you wants, if you want upgrade you'll pay

Blackberry needs trust right now.

This "blog" post requires follow through.

At the time I write this, the blog does not end the end user experience. It makes no mention that this is "trial" software. (ok ok, trial APP)

At this stage I would like to know 3 things:

1 is this native or another port?
2 how much is this software after trial?
3 how can BB World expect to survive letting software developers post 'apps' without the basic disclosure of $

The 'app' description lacks the info that is outlined in 1 2 3.

This nonsense is just one of the many issues with the bb world.

This is very much what I want to write.
when apps says it contains items for sale, I really like to see what the cost and what that gives me more to the free version listed.
I dont know how hard it that.

in the app description on App World its stated "This is a freemium app limited to 100 shots and video output at 480p".
When you set a timer that implies more then 100 shots, the app tell the price 0.99$ and ask for purchase.
It is a native application and it's not trial

OK, I think my comment is not clear about what BlackBerry world lacks.
"It does say its a trial version, but does not say how much to come out of trial on the BB World."
I do not like to download an app to know how much it will cost me to get full version. That's all.

Why don't you download it and figure it out yourself, if you can't be bothered to download it then clearly this app isn't for you.

Thanks, seems this is the response we get for anything BB.

Is it too much to ask that BB World clearly state the "in app" purchase items, and cost?

Would be so nice to see CLEARLY what app is an Android port as well.

Best of luck to BB, I hope they have a phone to offer when my z10 contract expires... this is a great phone when devs take the time to make native. Wish they would spend some time on the descriptions... but I am grasping at straws.

How is your link relevant to the topic? They really need to add a "report spam" button to the comments section.

Others are correct - it is a freemium app. It is interesting. Thanks to the dev for his work and thanks James for this article.

Ah never mind - it prompts once you configure it for more than 100 shots. It's 99 cents

This kind of app is very much fun!!!!! I finally got used to the before and after app, that one was excellent but as with many powerful apps took some getting used to. I use the professional results in work all the time. This one will do the same.

What a neat app!! Just burned through 100 shots, the app is 99 vents. I bought it, it's well worth the price.
Very cool app, kudos to the developer!

Does this work if you have blackberry balance on your phone? I cannot get it to produce the video, and I am wondering if somehow blackberry balance affects it's ability to operate correctly, as it affects locating a screen shot after it is taken.
