We at Harbortronics have been making time-lapse systems for about 12 years, with about 4500 systems shipped to customers for use all over the planet. We think the components selected for the Standard system is a great recommendation for the vast majority of outdoor time-lapse applications.

The Standard system is designed to operate autonomously, with no need for networks or AC mains power.

A 10 watt solar panel is included, which is sufficient for taking at least 200 pictures per day, even in areas of high clouds such as Seattle or London. In sunny locations such as Dubai or the Australian Outback, as many as 1000 pictures per day are possible. While solar power is generally the most reliable and lowest cost option for on-site power, AC mains or Power Over Ethernet options are also available.

Independent ball head mounts are provided for the Cyclapse housing and solar panel. Short rigid arms are also included with the Standard system, allowing connection to almost any structure, including scaffolding.

A Canon T6 camera, with 18-55mm lens is included with the Standard system. Other camera/lens options are available as well.

Images are extracted by simply swapping memory cards, made relatively easy by the side door on the Canon T6. A popular option is the USB Extension, allowing download to a laptop computer without accessing the housing.

Cyclapse Classic

The Cyclapse Classic time-lapse camera system is based on the Cyclapse housing and mount system, as well as the tried & true DigiSnap 2700 time-lapse controller. An additional circuit block called the Cyclapse Power Module is included to perform all power management functions, such as battery charge control, dual-battery hot-swap, power supplies for the camera, time-lapse controller, and accessories. Tight integration with the features of the DigiSnap 2700 such as external trigger and switched control over camera and accessory power are incorporated in the design of the Cyclapse Power Module.

Since 2004, Harbortronics has been producing time-lapse camera systems, continuously refining the designs and selected components per feedback from customers in the field. The Cyclapse Classic -Standard is our recommendation for a complete system to suit most applications, including all of the optics, electronics, and mechanics required to implement a high resolution, autonomous, solar powered, all weather time-lapse camera system.
