Underwater GoPro Eggtimer Panning TimeLapse?

I never dreamed my egg timer time lapse thing-a-ma-jigs
would travel the world.
First to Key West, and now to Palm Springs.
The folks at Canon Filmmakers found a use for the simple
devices that even I had not imagined....
Shooting an underwater panning time lapse ......?
Watch this.
Really? That's just silly.
But my next question ..... Did it work?
It appears it did, suction cup issues aside.
Now I have stated on this blog that I will
try and put a camera almost anywhere to get a cool shot,
this use must be confirmed.

I passed on the suction cup and moved to my Joby Gorillapod.
Silly? Yes. Did it work? Hell yea.
360 degrees? Stay tuned.


  1. did this underwater exposure damage the egg timer?

  2. Nope, I dried it off, then sun dried it. Amazingly it worked again.
    I would not try this with an expensive panning unit, it will probably destroy it over time.
    The cheap timers I use on my DIY projects are mainly plastic.
    Good luck if you try it.
