You can use the Raspberry Pi and the Pi camera to set up a pretty cool time-lapse machine. It will take photos every minute and timestamp them, so it’s easy to string together to create one stunning time-lapse quickly.read more
You’re able to do so much with the Pi camera, to just name a few you can set up the Raspberry Pi as a security camera, webcam server, and even a simple time-lapse creation device.
Most of these projects make use of the official Pi camera rather than just a standard USB camera. However, you will find most projects are still compatible with both.
Video and photography can be quite performance taxing, so you may find these projects will not run fantastic if you have other stuff already running on the Pi. For the best results, you should start from fresh, if possible.
We’re still working on more Raspberry Pi camera projects so be sure to come back soon. You can stay up to date by signing up to the mailing list or give us a follow on social.
There is a ton that you’re able to do with the Pi that isn’t just camera projects. You’re able to set up web servers, circuitry, IoT and so much more. If you’re looking for more to do then be sure to check out more of our projects.
If you’re new to the Pi and looking for some beginner guides to help teach you basics before you dive into these camera projects, then be sure to check out some of the getting started guides. They’re hugely helpful for anyone looking to learn the basics.
I hope you find these Raspberry Pi camera projects both fun and educational. If you run into issues, have feedback, or anything else then feel free to leave a comment on the relevant
