This project’s an unholy mixture of stop-motion, light-painting and hyperlapse from FilmSpektakel, a time-lapse and film production company in Vienna.
Filmed by a ring of 24 networked Raspberry Pi cameras working like a 3d scanner, taking pictures around the ring with a delay of 83 milliseconds between each one so that movement could be captured… Just watch!
Instrutables user Scavix has put together this great step by step guide on building a networked, HD surveillance camera using the Pi and associated components.
- Network access to live video
- Storage & upload of recorded video
- Motion detection & alerting
- Night vision (with the IR camera & lights)
- All weather housing
The housing is up to you but the rest is standard Pi components and the Raspian operating system.
Jim from Fotosyn has put together an awesome Instructable for building a timelapse camera with a Pi, camera module, battery pack and some software.
It’s protected from the elements by popping the whole lot in a coffee tin! Checkout the video below to see the kind of images that he’s captured.
How to disable the red LED on the Pi Camera Module. Mine hasn’t arrived yet but I’m definitely trying this really simple hack when it does.
