Our customer, Douglas MacAyeal, a Glaciologist/professor at the University of Chicago, used BlinkX (now UpBlink) in a project that studies surface melting and climate change effects on the George VI Ice Shelf located on the Antarctic Peninsula. Here is the incredible story of his team’s journey and how BlinkX with a custom power supply and HERO7 were part of the process to document their progress autonomously for two years!
With so many new opportunities on the horizon, construction firms will have to bid on highly competitive government projects and follow stringent regulations for compliance and safety. One strategy that can help construction firms build a strong reputation is the use of time lapse.
As we enter 2022 and embrace the promise of a brand-new year, CamDo Solutions reflects on the progress we made in 2021, which sets the stage for advancements in our capabilities to serve our customers into the next decade.
CamDo customer, David Manzo, owns Bejaw Video Productions in the San Francisco Bay area. He recently completed his first time lapse photography project for a local construction firm. They were building a high-tech campus featuring four towers and one parking structure, with a project cost between $700-800 million.
Manzo used an UpBlink with a GoPro HERO5. He set the equipment for max photo size and took one photo every 15 minutes on Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The equipment was installed on a 45-foot pole from September 2019 until November 2020.
If you’re using time lapse photography to document your construction project, you’re not alone. Many construction firms are finding that time lapse photography is useful for everything from monitoring a job site to informing investors of project progress, to marketing their businesses. And, bad weather doesn’t stop them, but there are some things you can do to make filming during rain or snow easier.
Passive homes are much more numerous in Europe than they are in the U.S., but awareness is growing. The passive home Adams + Beasley is building in Acton, Massachusetts was designed by architects at ZeroEnergy Design.
CamDo customer, Metropolis Visual needed to mount the cameras as high as possible to capture all the activities, but placing the cameras was a challenge. Since a small part of the building wouldn’t be demolished, they were not able to drill holes in the building.
Read this second part of the series of "The Do's and Dont's of Construction Time Lapse Photography." In this series you will discover ways to identify the length of your project, cameras to use, memory and power capacity of your device and much more!
