I believe the biggest obstacles with the Raspberry PI will be the Trigger speed and how well the camera see's infared light.

The nice thing about using the Raspberry Pi is you can hook a couple USB cameras to it. You could have one for day and one for night. I have a board here I have been playing with. The plan is to have it use a Verizon card for pic upload to a FTP server and use software that monitors pixel change for motion detection.

Jeff, you don't have the camera module yet do you?

It appears the S3 T1000 case may be ideal for a build like this. http://www.opticsplanet.com/s3-waterpro ... cases.html

The camera you referred to is not available yet. It plugs into the CSi connector on the RPi board. I have been using a USB camera to experiment with.

That case looks nice. I like the red color. (: What about batteries? The RPi draws 300ma and up depending on what is hooked to it at the time. To get any usable life out of this is going to require a large battery and solar power supplement.

That's good to know. What were you thinking for power?

My plan is to use this as a timelapse camera with motion detection as a secondary function. Power would come from a 18ah SLA and a 30 watt solar panel. My Linux skills are nil so the learning curve is steep for me on this one.

You want a tiny build, take one of these

and hook it to a motion detector.
