You only see time-lapse videos in hi-tech movies, well now it’s your turn. This garden video camera can literally watch your garden grow. What a perfect time as spring has just come about. Garden hobbyists would surely enjoy the labor they pour into the ground day in and out.
Available right here for about US$150. It can focus as close as 20″ away to illustrate petal growth or, with its wide 54″ field of view, it can capture perennials as they grow to conceal your spent spring bulb foliage.
How does it perform the time-lapse effect? Well… The camera takes a picture at one of six pre-determined intervals (five seconds to 24 hours) and combines them into a single 1280 x 1024 resolution AVI movie file for easy playback on a computer. It has a light sensor that turns off the camera at dusk and back on at dawn, allowing for continued video capture each day. Movies are timestamped and stored on the camera’s removable 2GB USB flash drive, which can take up to 18,000 pictures.
Is it at all weatherproof? It surely is!
