A collaborative research project in Long Island Sound uses Blink to document and study the interactions between oyster farms and aquatic wildlife. Learning what fish and mobile invertebrates (crabs, shrimp, snails, etc.) use the farm gear as habitat provides a better understanding of the benefits an oyster farm provides to the environment.

Matthew C. Grammer recently shared a video he created for his client, Republic Property Group, a Texas based real estate developer which manages a few communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The company was working on Walsh, a budding development west of Fort Worth. Grammer was tasked with producing videos to showcase the initial stages of the community. As part of this, he captured the construction of two buildings: a marketplace and an activity center.

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.

Simply put, a time lapse interval should be set in relation to the speed of the action of what you’re capturing. It determines the length of the final video and to a certain extent, the speed of your final video. And while it’s a fairly simple concept to grasp, it can be a bit tricky to execute, as there are a lot of variables to take into account.

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 latest CamDo 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.
