Your offshore adventures, captured on time-lapse video.

Imagine a full day of waterskiing, captured in stop-motion on your stern-mounted camera. With a Kayapod secured to your bow, each port of call can be memorialized.

The Kayapod Time-Lapse Camera Mount is designed exclusively for connection to the Brinno GardenWatchCam (sold separately, $139.00). The Brinno GardenWatchCam time-lapse camera is available worldwide from Amazon and other vendors.

The marriage of our high-performance Kayapod Time-Lapse Camera Mount and the award-winning Brinno GardenWatchCam time-lapse camera make this aquatic innovation possible.

The secret of the Kayapod is our patented mast technology. A tension cable holds the mast upright while preventing it from snapping or accidentally detaching. It's built to work, and to last a lifetime.

What is time-lapse video?

Time-lapse video is the capture of images over an extended period of time — a day, a week, even months, and the automatic compliation of these images into a single movie. Instead of recording continuous video, like a home video camera, a time-lapse camera records a series of individual images, perhaps taking one picture every minute, and then compiles the images into a single, continuous movie.

The digital video is stored in universally recognizable AVI format on the Brinno's internal USB drive, which can be removed from its water resistant housing and plugged into your Mac or PC's USB port for upload and viewing.

The result is a lovely, entertaining movie that appears as if time has sped up.

The advantages of a time-lapse camera aboard a boat are simply extraordinary. For one, you can turn on the video camera and leave it on for daytrips and long cruises. The camera uses very low power to capture a new image periodically, perhaps set to capture a new image every 20 seconds, so it can operate on one set of batteries for very long stretches of time.

But the real value of time-lapse video is the enjoyment you have watching condensed fast-motion review of an entire day's journey. Here's a 25-second clip of a 15-minute cruise through Boston Harbor.

The Brinno GardenWatchCam camera is portable, lightweight and full-featured for high-quality capture over the course of hours, days or even weeks offshore. And with our Kayapod mast — its quick clip-on steel fastener and marine-grade tensioning cable, a stable, secure attachment to any eyelet on your boat deck is ensured.

Pad eye and eyelet kit for attachment

Our patented fastening system clips beneath the Kayalite's base to any existing eyelet, deck loop, pad eye (as shown here) or any other fixed point of attachment.

Once clipped, the Kayapod's shock cord is pulled taut and cinched.

If you would like to install an eyelet on your boat, we offer a marine-grade Eyebolt Kit with do-it-yourself instructions.

A foam cushion under the Kayapod's base is designed to adapt to contours and protect the surface from scratches.
