Post Proper camera
Hello i am new here. I have a Olympus E-410. Its my understanding that i need to hook up to a laptop and power supply with the camera that i have to shoot timelapse. Is there a DSLR that has a internal interval mechanism where i would not have hook up to a laptop? I know i would still need a external power supply....

Read through all of this first, especially the part about intervalometers.

A little known IR intervalometer from GentLED will trigger the E-410. If using one of these (or any IR remote) watch out for sunlight falling directly on the camera IR sensor. It's kinda hard to compete with the sun for IR power.

Thanks for the links/tips Antz and Jam. I ordered and recieved a Goodox Digital Timer Remote. My understanding that it is a intervalometer. Waiting now to try it out. My main interest is the nightime sky and i'll have to see how that goes.

dmoug,

Yup, IR=infrared light. If you're using a wired remote it won't be a problem. See the little red piece of plastic on the E-410 handgrip, that's an IR sensor that can be used to trigger the camera. If you were using an IR intervalometer and had sunlight falling directly on the sensor it wouldn't be able to see the remote.

If you're shooting directly into the sun a graduated ND filter might be of some use to balance out the exposure. Joe Cornish has a very nice article on the subject here.

Thank you i see the sensor. I have a "CIR - Polarizing" filter is that to cut down reflection? Is it useful against the sun?
