Compact point-and-shoot cameras are wonderful for time lapse photography. You can leave them out for hours or even days without tying up your main camera, even the lowest resolution point-and-shoot creates images big enough for high definition video, and if they get stolen or destroyed you haven't lost thousands of dollars. Their one flaw in this application is battery life. Luckily with this DIY project, you can build a battery pack that will allow for your camera to stay on far longer than with the normal batteries.
For this project, you're going to need some basic electrical skills. If you're not comfortable soldering wires together, that's a skill you might want to brush up on before tackling this build.
