We've seen a steady flow of devices emerge and attempt to bridge the gap between the amateur photographers and those creating time-lapse masterpieces.
The Astro camera mount, for example, reduced the required technology to a three-ringed device that fits in your pocket, while the Genie and Camalapse went one step further to incorporate panning and tracking shots for those wanting a little creative freedom, Gizmag wrote.
These factors considered, the Michron is by no means revolutionary, but with no buttons, screens or dials, it may be the most simplified and user-friendly installment yet.
Much like other time-lapse devices, the Michron allows users to input settings such as frame-rate and duration, however these are controlled entirely through the free smartphone app (available for iOS and Android). Once the settings are saved in the app, the user plugs their phone into the Michron, which then stores the settings and when connected to a camera via the external trigger port, executes the time-lapse completely on its own (phone unplugged).
The device is designed to sit in a camera's hotshoe mount (where an external flash is attached), and comprises a plastic casing that encloses a printed circuit board (PCB) and a single battery, which the company says will power the device for a whopping 2,500 hours.
