A Day at the office

I received a GoPro camera for my birthday. I have already posted about the great things you can do with a GoPro, but since I am not ready to jump off a cliff just yet, I thought I’d play a bit with the Time-lapse features of that great little camera!

One of the camera settings allows you to take one picture every 1/2/10/30/60 seconds. I used it to take pictures every 30 seconds for a complete day at work (read: in my kitchen). Not much happening, I know, but I got to play with my new toy a bit, and I also learned a bit more about iMovie in the process. Stay tuned for more videos of me jumping off a cliff trying to catch my mouse! I will also try to build a Time-lapse tool from an egg-timer, to get a bit more movement!

Bonus: the GoPro Hero3 is just out, and honestly, the promo video is stunning!


J’ai reçu une GoPro pour mon anniversaire ! Et comme je ne suis pas encore prêt à sauter d’une falaise à skis (rapport au manque de neige), j’ai décidé de créer un Time-lapse d’une journée au bureau (dans ma cuisine, en ce moment).

La GoPro a un mode Time-lapse qui permet de prendre une photo toutes les 1/2/10/30/60 secondes, que j’ai utilisé pour prendre des photos toutes les 30 secondes pendant une journée. Rien de bien passionnant pour le moment, mais c’est un début, je commence à me familiariser avec la caméra et avec iMovie, le logiciel que j’ai à ma disposition pour le montage.

Prochaine étape, la construction d’un outil pour faire des panoramas, avec un minuteur de cuisine ! Je pourrai ensuite m’attaquer à la préparation d’une vidéo comme celle-ci !

    • I was actually alone for lunch, but you can’t really see on the video. I was off-screen. But I guess you saw my wife and I having breakfast! :)

  1. I liked how you changed the camera position every once in a while; very creative! :)

  2. Working from the kitchen sounds dangerous! I was really surprised to see that you don’t get up and check the fridge contents more often :)

  3. Kind of looks like me, except I have a bedroom office. I am thinking about moving it to the living room, but would have to keep my computer desk cleaned up more. It is nice to work from home, isn’t it?
