The Canon T6i is selected for it's high image resolution. For slightly higher image quality, the Canon 6D is a good option.
While a 10 watt solar panel is standard for most systems, a 20 watt panel is included with this system to provide better charge capability in polar regions. A second battery pack is also included, to increase the duration the system will operate without charging (cloudy skies, very low temperatures).
The Nested Tripod is a portable, light weight but rigid structure, perfect for remote sites that do not have existing mounting structures. Independent mounts are provided for both the Cyclapse and the solar panel, reducing the camera vibration due to high winds.
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.
