A DIY Nikon Infrared Intervalometer

a wireless Nikon infrared intervalometer

The idea to make an Infrared Intervalometer based on a wireless signal rather than a hard wire is an interesting idea.  I suspect it’s one that may have been bounced around before.  Fortunately, “whte_rbt lab” has actually put in the work and made one.  He was kind enough to post the build here along with Arduino code.

This creation was influenced by another Nikon infrared trigger build.  Besides time, this device could be used to trigger based on any number of feedback conditions (sound, light, etc).

Check after the “read more” link thing to see a sunset video taken with this configuration.  I’ve also listed some more creative triggering options if this one isn’t quite your style. Continue reading

A Solar Power Time Lapse Photography Rig to Rule Them All!

solar time lapse photography rigMaybe you’ve come up with some clever camera mounts (and I’d love to feature them on this site).  This self-contained solar time lapse build, however, may be is the most involved and well thought out time lapse photography rig that I’ve seen so far:

time-lapse-box-nikonAccording to this Reddit thread, it’s mounted high atop a 30 foot pole, and uses a Nikon D7100 camera (Amazon), a Raspberry Pi computer board for control, and a goal zero solar system to provide power.  It’s set up to record the building of a new manufacturing facility.  As someone who works in manufacturing myself, I would love the assignment to engineer a system like this.
