We were hoping to use our Dropcam cameras for both live video and time-lapse video of this project, and I requested to be part of their affiliate program so that we could potentially recoup a little of the major investment we’re making into this website. Alas, they deemed us not worthy of their affiliate program.

So, over the weekend, I bought a GoPro video camera and figured I’d use that for the time-lapse videos I’ll be making and posting to the site. I hadn’t had a chance to play with the GoPro before today, so I decided to shoot a test time-lapse video of our utility contractor digging up and capping off the sewer. It’s not very interesting (and the angle is wrong), but I only had about 3 minutes to figure out how to setup the camera before he started the work.

Here’s the video…I have a couple days to figure out optimal mounting location, camera interval and playback frame-rate. I’m looking forward to starting the demo and construction videos on Wednesday!
