Just for kicks, I decided to take out my $8 web cam and have some non-illegal fun with it. I placed the camera on my balcony and made it take a still photo every five minutes over a 24 hour period.

The capture period was done yesterday, ending this morning. When it was finished, I made a time lapse movie with the images, using 4 frames per second. The result is what you see above.

I’ve never done this before so it was interesting to go through the process. My web cam really sucks though so that degraded the quality of the images. The resolution is only 640 x 480 and it has a difficult time adjusting to varying light conditions. I’m tempted to get an HD web cam just for kicks now.

Anyways, enjoy the show.
