Camera Time-lapse Controller with Python and Raspberry Pi

In my quest to travel with the least posible amount of equipment, I decided to leave the intervalometer at home and use the Raspberry Pi as a time-lapse controller for the Sony A7 II. Since time-lapses take a long time to shoot for obvious reasons, I’ll be using the Sense HAT on the Raspberry Pi as a progress bar to give the user a general indication of how many shots are left....
