All things Raspberry Pi and Time Lapse

Some pictures that it shot before stopping

Here is the first image that it took on 8-26 at 12noon.

And this image was taken on 9-3 at 12noon.

It is not very clear in this format, but if you download both images and then flip back and forth there is a major change in the plants in the 9 days from the first one to second one. I am hoping to see more of these differences as the plants grow!

Unfortunately it only took pictures for 9 days and that is too short to make into a timelapse…. And when it was taking a picture every 2 minutes it had focusing problems. There is no way to set a manual focus, however I thought I had that accomplished using focuslock in gphoto2. The focus lock seemed to work just fine for the once a day picture but not the other. There was nothing that was moving drastically from each shot so it was weird that it didn’t focus right.

Still planning to setup for the second time this weekend!

Updated BOM (Bill of Materials)

Here is a link to my previous post for everything that is required for the project. The main things that were added are numbers 10 and 11 which is a case to hold all of the power cables, and some brackets and plastic screws to hold the Raspberry Pi inside the the case. 

 

I hope to install the setup in the next week or two in a greenhouse and watch tomato plants grow for about 3 months. This will provide some great testing time, and then i will setup for a year time lapse after that. 

 

Looking forward to setting it up!
