“Reliability is the primary concern as well as being simple and adaptable to both install and use. The quality of footage is on par with DSLR units that are much more expensive. In terms of cost vs quality of output there is no competition.”

Espen Eriksen, AltoFocus, CEO

“I needed a long term time-lapse solution that could be small and energy independent and could hold up in a construction environment. I have used MANY different time-lapse solutions and CamDo has the best solution I have found.”

Bobby Gibson, In Blue Productions, Owner

camera_enhanceWhat does it look like?

For our GoPro based construction cameras, our core time lapse controllers (Blink and BlinkX) are the brains, connecting to the GoPro and allowing you to set the time lapse schedule you need. The graphic below outlines the components in the CamDo construction camera time lapse system. We have a couple of simple options for the solar setup and also a non-solar setup using our DRY weatherproof enclosure if solar is not required.

components of time lapse system

location_cityMounting

High quality swivel mount included in Power+ and Solar packs. The marine grade aluminum swivel mount kit allows the Solar or DRY enclosure to be mounted on a flat vertical surface such as a building wall or a rounded surface such as a pole or rail. The pivot allows for full 360-degree rotation and the ball and socket system allows a 180-degree vertical pivot with a 360-degree rotation for ultimate aiming flexibility.

Included in the kit:

  • Swivel Arm bracket (see video below)
  • Solar/Dry enclosure mounting plate with ball and associated nuts/bolts
  • Replacement nuts so that once aiming is complete, the adjustment knobs can be removed, thus requiring the use of a tool to loosen. This improves security and reduces the chances of tampering

The mount is the perfect complement to our weatherproof enclosures.

The flexibility and quality of the mounting system is demonstrated in this video.

Breaking It Down: What is The Difference Between Wi-Fi and The Internet?
Breaking It Down: What is The Difference Between Wi-Fi and The Internet?

by Sarah Wallace February 12, 2020

A common misunderstanding that we see is in the customer support inbox that people use the terms WiFi and Internet interchangeably to mean access to the Internet. This comes up specifically as it relates to accessing various UpBlink features. Sometimes there is confusion surrounding the difference between setting up our controllers via our web-app and setting up CloudX to receive email updates or  automatically upload images to the cloud.

Customer Time Lapse: 7-Month Industrial Warehouse Rehabilitation & Construction

by Sarah Wallace February 05, 2020

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.

How To Determine Your Time Lapse Interval
How To Determine Your Time Lapse Interval

by Sarah Wallace January 29, 2020

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.
