A client approached me recently about filming time lapse videos of various construction projects he was undertaking around town. I quickly researched the available cameras online. They seem to be very affordable and easy to run. I leaped at the opportunity. It seems like a great way to make passive income while I am out running and gunning. I don't think I've ever seen this covered on your site before. I was curious if any of your other readers had experience with this.

The list goes on. So if you plan to shoot this kind of time-lapse you need to do some detailed planning or you could have difficulties.
I think Adam is right. Once you get setup and get some practice at shooting construction time-lapse this could be a good service to provide.
