Time lapse cameras do an excellent job of capturing the evolution of a build, and more and more construction sites are turning to solar time lapse cameras to do the job. But are they worth it? Here are the pros and cons of using solar-powered cameras on your project.
We’re excited to offer our newest planning tool: the Camera Strategy Tool. With so many camera types and applications on construction sites, planning, tracking, and executing, and monitoring your camera strategy can get complex. This tool makes it easy.
One of the most effective ways to attract new clients in the construction industry is by creating a visually appealing and comprehensive time lapse video of your site. The other reason to make a time lapse video, of course, is for up-to-the-minute site-monitoring.
When purchasing time lapse software, there are a few key capabilities that your construction company will need. But the most important criteria is actually unrelated to construction—usability. After all, fancy features are great, but they can’t help your team if the software is difficult to navigate.
Every construction site needs to be monitored. It’s especially important to be able to keep an eye on things when you’re not on-site in person. COVID-19 has increased demand for remote surveillance on construction sites. But beyond surveillance, cameras at construction sites can provide a ton of additional benefits.
The Ocean Cleanup is a nonprofit that is developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. And they’re doing this by developing large floating systems that concentrate and collect the plastic from the sea. It’s the largest cleanup effort in the world. Yes, it’s as cool as it sounds. View a time lapse of the construction of one of their systems and learn more about the effort.
2020 was probably a year most of us would rather forget, but at the same time we have to be grateful for all the amazing things that our customers did, and the solid position we're in for the new year ahead. Read on for a few exciting things to note.
Who knew measuring time was such an important aspect of photography? For professional constructiontime lapsesand photo delays, you will need to use a rig that has an effective intervalometer. This device is an adjustable timer that can be used to limit the number of wasted shots and select the times when you want photo capture. But how does an intervalometer work? And why is it so important to industrial photography?
Construction is a trillion dollar industry for a reason. Even small construction projects can cost millions of dollars in investments. Commercial jobs with this kind of scale and value require a high degree of monitoring in order to effectively secure the developer’s return on investment (ROI). Construction site monitoring can’t be limited to a photographer or a security team. It needs to be implemented from the top-down, using a manager’s perspective.
As a construction site manager, you are likely well aware that there are a variety of benefits to implementing a time lapse camera system. However, like introducing any technology into your operations, there needs to be an appropriate plan in place on how to correctly and successfully deploy it. Using a time lapse calculator helps construction site managers plan the needs they have for a time lapse project long before it starts.
Time lapse photography is an essential addition to many construction projects because it charts progress and provides information for stakeholders. However, all of this is contingent on staging a proper environment and knowing the purpose of the images you capture. With that in mind, let’s discuss some of the essential elements of composition and planning for time lapse construction photography.
In the age of COVID-19, there is an increased focus on the health and safety of everyone involved with your construction project. And part of the way to achieve this is a shift towards new ways to use technology, including remote monitoring.
