Launched in Kickstarter in 2012, the project for Radian had a simple aim: allow users to take stunning panning and tilting time-lapses. The team behind it had/have a dream: make motion time-lapse accessible to photographers of all levels.
Radian is a device that allows you to take motion time lapses with your DSLR or mirrorless camera, as well as GoPro and even your smartphone. Born out of the frustrations of their creators when trying other devices available in the market, Radian is compact, easy to use, and powerful. Radian has all the advanced features you need, while still keeping things simple so that you can focus on the shot, and actually enjoy what you are capturing.
In 2013 Radian was delivered to 1620 backers in 52 countries, with the remaining 300 Radian sold in one day. Somewhere in 2013 the Michron project appears on Kickstarter. Michron is a device that plugs into your DSLR or mirrorless camera and allows you to take time-lapses. To take a time-lapse, simply program Michron from your phone, connect it to your camera, and sit back while Michron takes the images that will create your time-lapse. Michron is another success: 4500 units are delivered to backers early 2014.
That same year the group started tinkering with new ideas and the feedback from supporters, and that’s how Radian 2 appeared. On Kickstarter until June 5th, 2015, the campaign for the new product aims for a $153,471 goal. With 372 backers now, they’ve reached $86,961, suggesting that the project will be funded before the end of the period still remaining.
