Thread: Any camera that can take a photo every 1 or 2 sec for a few minutes?

  1. #1

    Default Any camera that can take a photo every 1 or 2 sec for a few minutes?

    Hi all,

    I own a Nikon D80 and when I want to do a shoot with me and my gf, I had to either put on self-timer or use a wireless remote to trigger.

    I want to know is there any way for the camera to shoot continuous every 1 or 2 sec so that I can just pose for a few minutes? Or is there any other model of camera that can do that?

    Thank you so much for reading.

    Kim

    Any DSLR can do that. You just need a intervalometer.

    Thanks for all the quick reply.

    I google "intervalometer" and the below site comes out a few times.

    https://www.pclix.com/pages/pclix_main.html

    The above product cost US$140!! Is there any cheaper version of intervalometer locally?

    Thanks again.

    You can get interval timer remote in mass sales subforum. They cost around 80-90 dollars.

    Here are some after doing a quick search in Mass sales (all singapore sites):

    My Nikon P5100 has that function, I've never used it though.

    Pentax K7 has this option.
    I guess the advice for the intervalometer would be cheaper.

    The Minolta 7D dslr has a build in intervalometer, which shoots up to a maximum of 240 shoots!

    I just sold my 7D for $400 a few weeks ago. Im sure u can find one easily in the sony buy and sell forum

    A few things to note:
    - The backlight option last for a couple of seconds before switching off automatically by itself. A bit annoying when you are configuring in the dark. At least they could have kept it on when buttons are being pressed.
    - Operation manual have to be downloaded from the net. It's not included inside.
    - The wire might be a spiral cord instead of straight, so it's not as long as you might think it is.


    If you find no issues with the above, the thing works great.

    I seriously do not think they will sell that at the IT show. Even if they do, it will probably not be any cheaper. Might as well buy from the website and be done.
