    Nice hack. I’ve got the same camera, thanks for the idea. Now I only need a hack to make the timer go backwards.

    Could you just use the timer up side down?

  6. Yes it will run upside down.

    My earlier versions have run underwater

    Oh my goodness, surely this is the hack for 2011 !! Your end results are superb. Watch out Sydney, I’m about to start photographing you in a whole new way !

    If you turn it upside down, the direction of turning will be the same I think. Am I wrong?

  9. To get a pan right, hang the unit upside-down.
    Then go into the gopro menu and set the camera to record the photos upside-down.
    Pan right!

    Good luck and have fun lapsing!
