AN ARDUINO TIME-LAPSE CAMERA USING ARDUCAM
While experimenting with my pinhole cameras, I did a lot of thinking about capturing and displaying the passage of time. Day and night, the change of seasons, sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, tides, rush hour, busy times at restaurants, even life and death marks the passage of time.
There are plenty of commercially-available time-lapse photography devices. These require either an AC power source, a solar panel or a beefy battery, expensive photography equipment, and are large and easy to spot. Between the size and the expense, this strongly limits the duration of time lapse I would be able to take even if such a device wasn’t prone to being stolen by the first philistine that came across it. My goal is to make the smallest, most energy efficient and least expensive camera possible so that I am free to set them everywhere and see what the passage of time shows me.
To do this, I decided to give ArduCam a try.
