Acadian Time Lapse

The Irving-owned tanker Acadian was coming into the Port of Charlottetown yesterday while Oliver and I were walking around the boardwalk on the waterfront.

I wonder if my phone can shoot time lapses,” I muttered.

Yes it can!”, exclaimed Oliver.

And so I quickly took out my phone, opened the camera, selected “Timelapse” under “Video modes,” stuck the camera on a nearby deck for stability, and let it run. This is what resulted (it’s sped up 4x from normal):

Other than the slight tilt, which makes it look like the ship is sailing uphill, and was due the angle of the camera, it’s a satisfying result, and I’m happy to learn that my phone has this superpower.
