CamDo blog favorite, David Trood, is at it again. We’ve seen some very interesting videos from him in the past with the construction of the world's largest ethane gas carrier and the construction of the Experiementarium museum last year. This time, Trood captures a construction time lapse of the Metallica stage at the Royal Arena arena in Copenhagen, Denmark. The video currently has nearly one million views on Metallica’s Facebook page!
Trood used four GoPro HERO4 cameras with Blink controllers and external batteries. Blink was scheduled to have the cameras shoot an image every five minutes for the three days it took to set up the stage.
For Trood, it was a very simple set-up. It only took a few minutes to work out the set-up required for the project and where to place the cameras. And the time to set them up in the arena and start them. In fact, he set up the cameras, went on vacation for a week and then took the cameras down and gave the files to another team who did the edit. Who said impressive time lapse projects have to be ultra complex?!
Our customers have diverse needs. So we built versatile, highly customizable products that can be deployed anywhere: on a massive construction site, beneath the ocean's surface, spanning seasons in the backcountry ...and even in Antarctica in sub-zero temperatures.
No matter where you place your kit, you can trust that your system will be easy to deploy, protected in a rugged enclosure, and cost-effective... with high quality 4K footage as a result. Below are some of our favorite customer projects from land, to sea, to sky, and everything in between.
A few years ago, we featured a project from CamDo customer Douglas MacAyeal, which featured a time lapse video that monitored an ice shelf in Antarctica to study ice shelf stability at McMurdo Station Antarctica.
We recently heard from Douglas that BlinkX will be used for another project in Antarctica. This time around, the location is the George VI Ice Shelf in Antarctica. They will be monitoring surface lakes that fill and drain as the polar seasons progress, as hundreds form here. They’ll be staying at a station called Fossil Bluff, which is run by the British Antarctic Survey.
