    Default Time Lapse of Building Work

    Has anyone experience of putting together a timelapse of a building being constructed?
    What gear do I realistically need?
    Presumably a camera that is connected to the mains? Control via a PC rather than the camera itself?
    What about frequency of shot?
    Fixed exposure or auto?
    Obviously this will require rock steady stabilization, but what other requirements?
    Any other advice/recommendations (for equipment or otherwise)?

    This is for a one-off project.

    Hey Tim, sorry I didn't notice this one earlier. I've looked into this in the past. Different budgets have different solutions and different building dates have different options as well.
    For me there where two systems that where viable. An all in one system based around a DSLR and one around a GoPro. If it's a one off you may want to look at hiring. My research was back in 2017 or so and back then for me CamDo was the best budget option:

    Could be there are good alternatives now but I really liked the solution they offered.

    Thanks Grapes. In the end we opted for a purpose built camera - Brinno TLC2020 with weatherproof housing. It seems to do the job although I can't say Im impressed with the quality.
