Flitetest.com camera mount on my dji f450

I am testing out the camera mount from flitetest.com
It works pretty good for why I wanted it, which was to remove vibrations from the gopro and get it in front of the props. I had to mount it differently as the holes dont match up but I am really impressed with the quality and will totally be picking up some of their speed kits later.

Raspberry pi camera module – time lapse

Did a time lapse test today with the raspberry pi camera module.
2,300 pictures taken 1 second apart. About an hour down to 3 minutes.

I added the following line to /etc/rc.local

raspistill -w 1920 -h 1080 -q 100 -o myimage_%d.jpg -tl 1000 -t 3600000

This takes a 1920×1080, quality 100 jpg, every 1 second for 60 minutes.

I wanted to limit the amount of space used by the pictures as i am only using a 16g sd card. 1080 size comes out around 1meg a jpeg

When i started it back up at my desk i did a “killall -v raspistill” to stop the camera and used winscp to copy them to my windows computer.

Took the photos into Lightroom to clean up and then into after effects.
