Timelapse video photography with the Raspberry Pi and Arduino

Spencer Organ recently spoke at CamJam about his timelapse video rig (pictured above). It uses an Arduino in combination with the Raspberry Pi (and it’s associated camera module) to pan across a landscape, taking photographs every so often as defined by the software. A servo is used to control the pan and a keypad is used to input parameters via a menu system displayed on a Nokia 5110 screen. A 16×2 LCD display completes the picture.

The MagPi have now published their tutorial article (from issue 49) and you can find that here. A video of Spencer’s talk is below and you can find the code for the system here. Spencer has written about the project on his own blog, too.

Most of the equipment for this project were purchased from RyanTeck.
