A test run for creating time-lapse videos with a Raspberry Pi. 3,200 images shot at 24 second intervals over 12 hours out the window of my apartment between Jan 3-4 2015.
Find a better mount for the Pi - this video was created with the unit resting on top of a large sealed flexible plastic container near a window. There is slight camera movement in the video that I attribute to temperature changes in the air inside (and outside container) causing the container to swell and contract.
Start more in-depth experimentation with the parameters on the capture command to get a better grip on the exposure and other camera settings.
Upgrade to a wide angle lens
Setting the camera closer to the window will surely result in less reflection from the inside at night.
Use different output file settings. 3,200 full frame (2592x1944px) images yielded approximately 10 gigabytes of compressed jpgs - this amount of data is unwieldy to sequence into a video or even just transfer from place to place.
