Post Budget Homebrew Time Lapse Information
New to the time lapse idea but when talking to some MNR personnel they had mentioned that I should be using a time lapse camera to monitor a deer winter feeding zone.

The equipment he mentioned was made by http://www.brinno.com/html/product02a.html

I was reading about the CDSK firmware for Cannon cameras and that peaked my interest on tring to put something together that should have more capabilities then a the commercially sold item.

I would like to use a budget style camera with a external remote port. With a timer remote with unlimited shots

I did find a DIY on how to wire some of the major camera brands remote port to a universal mic style connector also.

I think from my reading that it would be the simpliest setup for what I want it to do.

Please give me some suggestions and help

CHDK and Canon cameras will solve your problems I think. Either you use a script to take pictures at intervalls or you build a cable if you for some reason want to remotly shot the camera. Describe your problem in detail if you need more help!

With CHDK and an inexpensive Canon powershot camera you can do motion detection and interval shooting. I have recently been playing with it and it works pretty well, all I have done is started creating raw files from the camera and I have done several time lapses as well. Just google CHDK and you will find a ton of info on doing this.

Thanks for the information

Not looking for motion detection at this time but it is cool to here that there is that option.

I was thinking the the CDSK might be alittle tough to setup if all I wanted to do is take a pic every 2-5mins.

After reading it looked like there were external remotes with timers in them that will release the shutter.

With these to options available is there some recommendations of a budge camera that would work well with
CDSK
or
External remote with timmer

I have plans to modify the units to operate on external batteries to get days out of it hopefully :)
