I'm working on a project with my Raspberry Pi at the moment. I'll give a brief summary of what I'm trying to achieve.
- I would like my RPi to take high resolution pictures through a USB webcam at intervals, say every 5 minutes
- I would then like to upload each image into the web, preferably to my Dropbox account (Possible?)
- I will then set the desktop background settings of my Windows 7 machine to look in the directory where these images are stored
- End result: I can set the RPi up on the farm where I grew up so my desktop background will keep me up to date on what's going on up there while I'm stuck behind my desk at work wondering why I didn't become a farmer!
Sound like a fun idea?
So my question at this stage in my project is about your experience with cameras that work well with the RPi and what I should look for the get the highest res possible out of it. Also if anyone knows of any good software for taking picture at intervals that would be useful too! I have read about the 'motion' app but it seems to have issues with high resolution.
All advice/ ideas will be highly appreciated!
