What is Pico?
Pico is like a new brain for your camera. Use the free smartphone app to create a program and send it to Pico. After transferring your settings, you can unplug it from your smartphone and Pico will save the program in its memory. Then, connect Pico to your camera using the included adaptor cable, and Pico will take control to create the time-lapse sequence.
Who is Pico for?
We designed Pico to be incredibly simple and intuitive, yet powerful. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a professional, Pico is right for you.
Time-lapse photography has become very popular in the past couple of years, but it still feels unreachable to many people. There is so much that can be done with time-lapse, from home videos to professional movies, and we feel like its potential is still yet to be reached.
You can take Pico anywhere and use it to take amazing videos of family events, art projects, sports, documentaries, concerts, parties, landscapes, businesses, architecture, school projects, and so much more. All in a very simple, almost effortless way.
If you don’t have a smartphone with you, you can still use Pico as a simple intervalometer. To set the shooting interval, just press and hold Pico, and count the number of beeps to reach your desired interval. Each beep equals one second. Let go and Pico will start shooting at the programmed interval until you unplug it.
With the smartphone app, you have the ability to create professional time-lapses:
HDR (High Dynamic Range): Take multiple photographs at varying exposure levels.
Bulb Ramping: A technique used to compensate for natural changes in light. It is ideal for seamless day to night sequences.
Speed Ramping: You can adjust the speed of time within the time-lapse to add a cool slowing or accelerating effect.
Always with you
There is a saying that the best camera is the one that you have with you; we believe the same is true for time-lapse photography. You don’t always know when something amazing will happen and we want you to have Pico at hand when it does.
Pico is small enough to always be in your camera bag, and with a battery life of 8 years, you will never have to worry about charging it. Just keep Pico in your bag and you will always be ready to capture that epic moment.
