New found card model

Initially to test whether the Yi 1 will record for long continuous periods, I assembled a new model with the found card. As the Yi no longer has the back case it will not stand by itself, so I hastily assembled a lego stand. The camera successfully recorded continuously for several days and was manually turned off.

The triptych below shows the three days of recording, all with speed increased to play within 3 minutes. The majority of the “night” time (black screen) has been removed. The camera was set to lens distortion correction (as part of the lego stand was visible in full wide-angle), and did not need any further correction in after effects.

The oblique light across the undulating wall is particularly effective, and better than the last model where the light was direct.
