Weatherproof Time-lapse with a DSLR, Eye-Fi, gphoto2 and Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

From madisprojects via raspberry pi pod:

I needed something to make a time lapse movie of a construction. The basic requirements were:

• good quality pictures

• interval between pictures not less than 15 minutes

• taking pictures only during working hours

• ability to upload the pictures to web

• weatherproof design

• remote management

I had done one time lapse project with a GoPro Hero2 and Arduino, but there were two bad things – the GoPro has a really wide angle lens, and its picture quality in dark is quite bad.

After looking around in my workshop, I found an old Nikon D40, a RaspberryPi, a cheap Tenda router and a 3G USB modem. So I came up with the following:

• The camera will be controlled by a RaspberryPi running gphoto2

• Taken pictures will be uploaded to Google Plus and my desktop computer by Eye-Fi SD card

• To power the camera, it’s good to use a battery dummy. They can be purchased cheaply from Ebay

• For weatherproof housing it’s ideal to use waterproof cases from Explorercases. I chose model 2214

• With the help of a mobile broadband and dynamic DNS, I’ll be able control the whole setup and change camera settings from anywhere

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
