Thread: Time Lapse: 9h48m to <40s

  1. Default Time Lapse: 9h48m to <40s

    Simple stationary time lapse using old Hero2. Recently acquired skeleton housing allowed for external power while on tripod. I didn't really want to crop it to 16:9 so I pillarboxed it.

    Nice,

    Love to see a pic of the gear setup. Any chance it'd work on a solar cell?

    It looks like a standard Hero2 housing but with an opening on the side with the USB, mic and A/V connectors. A solar USB battery is my next test. I'm also considering a small gel cell with a car USB adapter, which could do double duty as ballast for the tripod. I'd like to be able to leave it running for a full day on battery power.

    Ah right I think I got the idea yeah. Sounds like a good plan, hang it in a high place somewhere and I bet you can have really nice results! Well keep us updated when you can

    Can you explain a little more how you set up the power supply ?

    If you're open to buying stuff instead of DIY-ing you might like to check this store out: https://cam-do.com/collections/hero2 . They cater to long term time-lapse based on GoPro cameras.

    Right now it's just an old phone charger with the right USB end. It's got a nice long cord and seems to power the Hero2 just fine. That could be replaced by a small gel cell and a 12v to USB adapter, which should run it for days. If that weren't enough I could add a solar cell paralleled to the battery to top it off each day. Alternatively, there are those solar charging cell phone boosters, an all in one external battery/solar charging option.The open sided housing makes all these options possible, but it can also let dust and water in.
