How to create a 5-month time lapse?
Recently hired by a construction company to create a timelapse of an interior renovation project. It will eventually be used in a promotional video, so the final duration doesn't need to be more than 30sec or so, once the non-work hours are edited out. I'm having trouble figuring out the best method for this.
GoPro was my first thought, but the maximum interval is 60seconds, which is way too many photos!
The Brinno construction camera looked promising, but the image quality looks really bad, with a max resolution of 720p. The only other "construction cameras" I can find have to be installed and managed by a service, and they're more for security purposes.
I can do a DSLR, but they're expensive and not exactly construction proof. The client wants to buy the gear rather than using ours for 5-months.
Is there some small mirror less solution or something that would be good for this? I can't believe there isn't a product that's designed for this.
