In time-lapse photography a series of images, taken at regular intervals, is used to create a video showing motion faster than real time. This allows for the creation of video of long term projects, such as the construction phase of a large project. The system components are:
2 Canon EOS 450D Digital SLR Cameras, each with a Sigma EX, 24 mm, F/1.8 Wide-angle lens.
2 Windows XP Computers with USB port
2 licenses of GBTimelapse Software
GBTimelapse software allows for automation of the time-lapse acquisition process, allowing configurtion of daily start and stop times and sleep days, to reduce the volume of unneeded picture data.
The cameras are presently placed in the Northeast and Southeast corners of the lab to allow for full coverage of the lab and to provide redundant coverage for the main part of the lab, including the shake tables.
