speaker_notesTestimonials

“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 controller UpBlink is 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


square_footMounting

High quality swivel mount included in all packs. The marine grade aluminum swivel mount kit allows the 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)
  • 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.

What the Heck is an Intervalometer?
What the Heck is an Intervalometer?

by Sarah Wallace January 14, 2021

Who knew measuring time was such an important aspect of photography? For professional construction time lapses and photo delays, you will need to use a rig that has an effective intervalometer. This device is an adjustable timer that can be used to limit the number of wasted shots and select the times when you want photo capture. But how does an intervalometer work? And why is it so important to industrial photography?

Construction Site Monitoring: A Manager’s Perspective

by Sarah Wallace January 07, 2021

Construction is a trillion dollar industry for a reason. Even small construction projects can cost millions of dollars in investments. Commercial jobs with this kind of scale and value require a high degree of monitoring in order to effectively secure the developer’s return on investment (ROI). Construction site monitoring can’t be limited to a photographer or a security team. It needs to be implemented from the top-down, using a manager’s perspective.
