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.
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.
CamDo Customer Seth Larson recently shared a long term construction time lapse video of a recently completed construction project by Stel Builders, a residential remodeling company based in San Diego, CA. The project consisted of the demolition of a garage structure and construction of a garage with a rental unit on top.
Construction time lapse is a strong tool for documenting a build, recording progress, updating stakeholders, and marketing your services. Last year, we featured an article highlighting five common long term time lapse mistakes to avoid. But that list certainly was not an exhaustive one. Here are five more time lapse mistakes to avoid, specifically on construction time lapse projects.
CamDo customer Albert Sanfeliu recently shared footage of a recent 7-month project that he completed through his company, Pandora Box TV. The video shows the rehabilitation of an industrial warehouse for loading, unloading, and storage of products that arrive via sea transport. The ship was badly damaged, both internally and externally, so steel masts had to be placed outside for the first five months in order to have a high point of the space.
Have you been taking advantage of all of the tools we offer? From comprehensive time lapse guides to a time lapse calculator (our most popular tool) to how to videos to an SD card reader, we aim to arm you with the information and tools that will set you up for time lapse success.
I had the pleasure of traveling to the Yukon in search of Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) awhile ago. Photos of this phenomenon are always pretty spectacular and I wondered if I could capture something similar but in time lapse format using my GoPro. As a backup I also packed my trusty Panasonic Lumix, a nice compact camera with all the requisite manual controls.
I had been wanting to put the latestCamDo UpBlink Time Lapse Controller (which was released earlier this year) through its paces in a more challenging environment and this was the perfect opportunity. We had recently iterated our successful outdoor solar enclosures so I also took one of these along to see what interesting time lapses we might be able to capture.
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.
Kyle Martin, of the popular YouTube channel "Kyle Martin Tech: GoPro Tips and Tricks", had a chance to spend some time with our BlinkX time lapse controller and SolarX solar enclosure. View the video to hear what he had to say.
Last year, we featured ahighway construction time lapsedone by Utah Department of Transportation that was submitted byBobby Gibsonof InBlue Productions. The first video was a progress video that illustrated one piece of a much larger pie.This project turned a highwayinto a freeway-style road, which consisted of building ramps/underpasses for all the busy cross streets for the highway.
