Building a Portable Self-contained Raspberry Pi Camera Rig

I document my self-contained Raspberry Pi camera rig for timelapse photography. It’s powered off a USB mobile phone booster pack. To suit my chosen form factor, I had to bust out the soldering iron and solder connections directly to the Raspberry Pi Model A+’s bed of nails test pins (“PPxx”). The rig includes a wifi dongle and a power off button for clean shutdowns without a keyboard and screen.
