CamDo Insider: In Blue Production’s Long Term Construction Time Lapse Camera Overview

CamDo customer Bobby Gibson, who has been featured twice before in our blog, including this bridge construction time lapse project and this solar panel installation time lapse, recently shared his overview of the CamDo long term time lapse tools he has been using to capture his construction time lapse footage, namely the SolarX Time Lapse Enclosure.

Bobby's production company, In Blue Productionsis an aerial video capture and editing company that primarily captures construction time lapse footage in Utah. He was kind enough to include CamDo Solutions in his inaugural company video about the SolarX Solar Power Enclosure and share more about the product and how he uses it to create construction time lapse videos for his clients and for his own advertising purposes.

"I've used this [the SolarX Solar Power Enclosure] product a ton and I really liked it. It's a really great turnkey solution to get something quickly deployed, and to make sure that it can keep up with the rugged environment, whether that's weather or a construction site."   

As Bobby mentioned in the video, the SolarX Solar Power Enclosure takes only about 15 minutes to put together with minimal use of tools, and can be tightened and modified with the hand screws on the actual product.

We also offer a sturdy Swivel Mount for mounting purposes for both the SolarX and DryX outdoor enclosures, perfect for securing the Enclosure for construction time lapse purposes as the swivel mount kit is made of marine grade aluminum. The kit consists of a 6" long straight swing arm on a vertical mounting base for attachment to a flat or rounded surface such as a wall or post. The opposing end is a ball socket used with the 1.5" ball mount plate that can be attached to our SolarX or DryX outdoor enclosure for ultimate aiming flexibility.

Bobby likes that the Swivel Mount gives him versatility and helps him to ensure that he's lining up the ideal vantage point on the construction time lapse projects that In Blue Productions is involved with.

"The great thing about this is that its so versatile. It rotates in every direction... so you can hook it to a pole and then turn the actual enclosure whichever direction you'd like. [The Swivel Mount] is actually one of my favorite parts: it lets you move it in any direction."

Thank you to Bobby for including us in your very first In Blue Productions video and for the in-depth and succinct overview of the SolarX Solar Power Enclosure and how it's been an integral tool in your construction time lapse efforts.

We'll certainly be seeing more of Bobby!
