3 comments on “DIY time lapse track and dolly with LEGO Mindstorms NXT

  1. I’m very interested in the lego mind storms setup for the dolly movement. As I’m just getting into timelapse myself, I have a timelapse controller that does panning and shutter control, I’m more interesting in the slider side of things now. I would be interested in whatever information you could share with me in regards to this side of things.

    • Hi James. It’s on my todo list to do a more thorough blog post about the dolly system. I will also post the midstorms program files. I’m a little pressed for spare time this month but I will endeavor to do so ASAP. Please check back regularly or just follow my blog and you should get a notice. I’ll make it my next post. πŸ™‚

  2. Hey Bryan:

    I loved your idea of the NXT-powered timelapse track so much that I buit one myself just like yours. The only issue I’m having is the time interval between the shots and the motor don’t sync up, can you elaborate on how you connected your DSLR to your NXT brick?
