looking for basic setup for my shop
« on: October 28, 2019, 01:40 PM »
I'm interested in trying to take pics of my work area as I build stuff and am looking for a basic and cheap setup, GoPro is way more than I want to spend. I would like to mount a camera or two pointed at areas in my shop and connect to them  from my andriod phone to snap a pic of whats going on and download pics to phone or pc. Don't care if it has video or not.  Kinda like a cooking show that can snap pics of ingredients but would show stages of my work, lol.

I have almost no idea where to start or google as I have fallen way behind on technloigy. thnx

I go the extra cheap way. Just clamp my phone on random shelves around the shop to get some decent videos and whatnot.

Something that is able to take pictures on an interval (basically doing a timelapse) might be useful, so you can concentrate on work (and sift through the pictures later to pick the ones you want, without being frustrated that you forgot to take one).
