If you are looking for a new Raspberry Pi mini PC project to keep you busy you might be interested in this Raspberry Pi video camera and timelapse recorder which has been created by Jason Birch.
The Raspberry Pi video camera uses a Raspberry Pi micro computer, Raspberry Pi camera, 3.5″ composite monitor and is powered by 6x AA batteries and is capable of recording full HD 1080p footage. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Raspberry Pi video camera project and see it in action.
Jason has also designed to Raspberry Pi video camera monitor to automatically power off and save battery power, without effecting the recording of a subject that might be in progress. Jason explains a little more:
“There are four very basic circuits required for this project. The first is a 5V regulator to reduce the 7.2V from the rechargeable batteries to supply the Raspberry Pi. All other parts of the project run from the 7.2V, the LCD monitor and LEDs. The regulator used here is TSR1 2450, and is relatively expensive, but provides much better battery life than some regulators. Optionally a 7805 regulator can be used, is pin compatible and costs very little, but battery life will be reduced by about 20%.”
