The wait is over.
We announced that UpBlink was coming back in December. And now, it’s available for Pre-Sale. Our aim is to help streamline your long term time lapse workflow. And with UpBlink, we have!
“Our mission has always been to help businesses and photographers capture difficult footage with a simple workflow. Whilst we’ve been capturing difficult footage for many years now, a big step that has been missing in the workflow is the upload. We’re absolutely thrilled to be providing this workflow benefit to our customers, further cementing our value of 4K for less. There are plenty more benefits still to be developed, so stay tuned!” - Todd McCann, CamDo Solutions CEO

UpBlink is a time lapse controller for GoPro HERO5. It’s extremely easy to deploy and use, all while being the most cost effective 4K option on the market.
Where UpBlink takes things to the next level is that it also allows for remote status monitoring and automatic image upload to CloudX Pro.
Customers have been asking for these two key features for years. They’re here at last.
Now you can check on the project site remotely by viewing the latest image upload. You can also use the uploaded image to get that peace of mind to know the system is working, and if you ever need it, you have access a historical record of images.
It’s a major evolution from BlinkX. Both products are a time lapse controller with schedule customization (via an easy-to-use web app) that offer 4K-quality footage with the option of adding remote status monitoring via CloudX Lite.
The main difference is that CloudX Pro is not available with using BlinkX -- so therefore, cloud upload is not an option with BlinkX. UpBlink does everything that BlinkX can do, only with the added option for automatic image upload to the cloud.
Pretty easy, actually! In order for image upload to work, you’ll need access to a local WiFi network or data hotspot. Additionally, you’ll need a subscription to CloudX Pro to access the upload feature. UpBlink does the rest of the work for you.
That’s right, no more frequent site visits to swap SD cards. Your kit can stay put, without being bothered, for the long term.
Not really. UpBlink can control power to the hotspot via the USB port incorporated, therefore only turning on the hotspot after each image to conserve power. We know your power is valuable and designed it to utilize as little power as possible.
It is currently compatible with HERO5 Black. The team is working to expand this to HERO6 as quickly as possible. And there are additional exciting new camera options planned this year.
UpBlink is now available for pre-sale. Get yours today and be among the first to use this exciting product. A small quantity of orders will begin shipping at the end of March, first ordered = first shipped, so order yours today! All remaining orders will ship early April.
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.
