This Timelapse Garden Video Camera is a lovely little product, especially if you enjoy timelapse photography as much as we do. Just set it up in your garden (or balcony pot?) pointing towards your flora and harvest the results when you’re ready to watch nature unfolding in silent, slow motion splendour. The camera will capture images at intervals from 5 seconds to 24 hours, at SVGA resolution and can store up to 18,000 images on the removable 2GB flash memory drive. $159.95.
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 (play the video). 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.
