I am a computer science
student new graduate who also enjoys volleyball, hiking, and photography. This time lapse project combines my love for computers and photography and I am looking forward to getting it to work!!
The reason for the name came from a combination of the Raspberry Pi and Time Lapse – making rasplapse.
Some of my previous time lapse projects are on vimeo available here. https://vimeo.com/computermillerj/videos
My gear includes a tripod, a Canon Powershot S2 IS, and CHDK (Canon Hack Development Kit) and some creativity. The CHDK (http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK) allows for a standard Canon camera to temporarily upgrade the firmware, without voiding the warranty, and it allows extra features. One of these is a script which I can set to take a picture every X period of time (one shot every 10 seconds for example). This is how I take time lapse videos. I would like to be able to upgrade to a DSLR sometime to take time lapse, but for now this is what I have.
The more I learn, the more I realize how much more there is to learn.
