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.

Back to the Future Cuusoo Lego Set

Picked up the new Cuusoo Lego set when it was only $35 on amazon. Really great set. Took me about an hour to build it. It also comes with a really nice booklet on the history of the car and movie along with a ton of step by step pictures. I don’t think i have purchased legos since i was in grade school. With my allowance. Crap, now i may have to go get some more…
