I am looking for a camera or set up that can take photographs of small insects at a set interval after being set up and left.
- Can be set to take a photo every ten minutes
- Long battery-life (up to 24 hours)
- Cable of macrophotography or lens can be swapped to a macro lens
- Somewhat weather resistant - not necessarily water resistant
- Small and relatively inexpensive
I have looked into a GoPro but they seem to have a short battery life. Right now I am looking at the Raspberry Pi VR220 camera and wondering if that could work.
More Detail: I am a researcher in Alaska, and I am hoping to take photos of insect larvae moving on a leaf over a period of time to produce a sequence of photos. Ideally this would look like 1 image taken every 10 minutes over the course of 24 hours, but if that's not possible up to 1 image per hour could potentially work. The camera would be set up and left outdoors and on a stand or attached to the tree. It doesn't need to be capable of picking up images in the dark because it will only be dark a couple hours per day. Is there any set up that could do this or something similar?
