How to build a weatherproof enclosure for taking time lapse photos using a smart phone.
This enclosure is not 100% waterproof but can reasonably survive rain while protecting your smartphone. This enclosure was used over a 5 day period including two days of rain and easily kept the camera dry.
Using this enclosure, you can take time lapse videos like this.
1. Two pieces of plexiglass, each slightly larger than the smartphone
2. A few scraps of 1" thick wood or plywood
3. A smartphone with a time lapse application and built in camera
4. Small tripod
5. Charger cord for the smartphone
6. Miscellaneous screws
