Intelligent time-lapse photography with Arduino

After seeing various time-lapse controllers for cameras, Holden Leslie-Bole decided to make and share their own version. It adds some interesting control options, such as potentiometers to control the delay time and also light sensors to enable shutter releases when light levels change. Finally they've included a servo to rotate the camera if required and used an LED display for a basic user interface.

Furthermore the interface with a camera can safely be made, by hacking an inexpensive remote control that can be found from online retailers. Nevertheless, to get started check out Holden's project pageAnd for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

If you're interested in making these time-lapse controllers - but not sure how to learn - order one of our Experimenter's Kit for Arduino: 

The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit.
