Auckland Harbour Sunrise Time Lapse Video Featuring The Arcadia Cruise Ship

On my recent trip to New Zealand, I spent a night in Auckland before flying to Queenstown. My room at the Auckland Hilton had a nice view of Auckland Harbour and I was up before sunrise. When I noticed a cruise ship heading into the Harbour, I quickly set up my iPhone 6s to make this time lapse video.

For previous time lapse videos, I’ve used apps like TimeLapse and Hyperlapse from Instagram. I’m really happy with the results I got using the native camera’s time-lapse feature on the iPhone 6s. I set up this time lapse shot by clamping my iPhone 6s to my room’s balcony using my In Your Face Viewbase.

My layover in Auckland was so short, I thought about staying near the airport. But stumbling upon this pretty sunrise scene, I’m glad I didn’t.

Do you have a favorite app or way to make time lapse videos? Let me know in the comments thread.
