Time Lapse Video using CubieTruck and Nikon D200

Today it was whole lot fun exploring the possibilities with Raspberry Pi and DSLR for taking time lapse video. Latter I moved from Raspberry Pi to CubieTruck so that I can attach hard drive for large storage capacity. I found a small command line utility gphoto which can be used as remote control for a DSLR. I can use the utility to click a photo and stream the picture to the Pi.

The version I found on the apt-get was little old so I had to compile my own version. Then you can play around with the gphoto command to play around.

EDIT: Forgot to mention about the cronjob

Last but not the least to make the images into a movie

It was fun I hope you will enjoy doing it 😉
