I am pretty much a total beginner when it comes to Raspberry Pi's and everything associated. Thus, I am relying on the people in this Forum to help me out:) I have a project in Greenland for which I would like to build a cheap timelapse camera system.
I would like to use solar panel, some kind of Li-Ion Battery, a Pi Zero and A Canon DSLR to setup said system.
The system would need to work for approximately one year without failure (meaning the Arctic winter with no sunlight), taking pictures every hour. At the moment I am trying to find out the size of the solar panel needed as well as the size of the battery (mAh). I figured out that a DSLR battery has about 5.8 Wh, which should last for about 2-3 days of taking pictures.
So my questions are: 1. First of all, do you guys think this is feasable? 2. What is the energy consumption of a Pi Zero for a day/year given the fact that it would only run a simple script? 3. Any ideas on what size the solar panel/battery should be?
I'd appreciate any help/links/tipps.
