I recently mentioned I was going to purchase a GoPro camera for our time lapse videos as I was not happy with the quality of the images of our original one. I managed to get one and had a chance to try it out.
It does have a handy iphone app that together with the wireless functionality on the camera enables one to connect to control the GoPro from the phone as well as see what its recording (the camera itself does not have a view finder).
On our trip to Whilton marina I set the GoPro up on AmyJo's cratch window and ran it whilst cruising. I must say the video quality is far superior however, the battery life on the GoPro is poor to say the least, only lasting just under two hours.
That said I did manage to run the camera between the Marina and Watford Locks. The time lapse interval was set at 1 second intervals and looks much smoother than the old camera's best of 3 seconds. Here is the un-edited version.
