Madis Projects were booked for a challenging time lapse project. They needed to take a time lapse of a construction site for a long duration and their previous project using a gopro was not satisfactory.
They also needed a 15 minutes interval, endless photo storage, remote management and web uploads.
What did they do? They built a lean mean weather proof DSLR time lapse machine using Raspberry Pi.
The scheme is pretty basic too: use the Raspberry Pi to control the camera, connect the eye-fi card to the router, connect router to the world using 3G, upload the files to remote location.
The hardware is sitting pretty tight in the case, and a bit of dremelling, glue and a Hoya filter made a clear, drop proof outlet for the lens.
Sounds simple, right? I have to say that the tutorial that Madis supplies can get you through lots of the software and integration hurdles so maybe it is.
