Am about to start a new house build on a semi-rural block.  I am keen to document progress on a once-daily basis and need to get a suitable solution as I will be on the bulldozer starting to push dirt later next week!! :-)  Have had a look at trail cameras, which I guess might do, but I don't really need the motion activated operation nor, necessarily, night-time capability (although we do occasionally have some issues on the farm where it could be useful to deploy such a device after I have finished with it on the build).  I want to "set and forget" in a fixed location rather than try and remember to take a photo from exactly the same spot every day!!

 

I guess I would like some advice on any solutions, including alternatives to trail cameras, that I can program to take a shot once a day.  Obviously it will be exposed to the weather, but will be readily accessible if required (e.g. battery replacement, SD card downloads etc).  Thanks in advance :-)

Senecio:

Thanks - I had considered something along those lines but an external power source is not really practical in my situation. As I said, the device will be readily accessible, but neither do I want to be regularly having to change batteries :-)
