Cyclapse Classic -Budget


The Budget system is a complete kit for performing long term indoor or outdoor time-lapse photography, with components selected for the lowest cost, but with no sacrifice in quality.

A Canon T5 camera is included, with 18-55mm lens. Other camera/lens combinations are certainly possible.

Images are extracted by swapping memory cards in the camera. The camera can be removed & replaced as needed without loss of registration.

A rigid but easily adjusted ball-head mount allows the housing to be mounted to a horizontal pipe, or bolted/screwed to an existing structure. A wide range of other mounting solutions are also available.

AC power is presumed, with an AC/DC weatherproof adapter provided, along with a 10 ft extension cable. Solar power is also available if preferred.

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.
