Cameras with an Interval Timer capability

!Under construction!

As I find them, I will start to build a list of relatively light-weight cameras, that I would happily use for KAP, supporting both:

  • RAW image capture; and
  • an integral interval timer (time lapse), with short interval times under 60 seconds.

1. Canon Powershot & CHDK

One option is to use older Canon Powershot compacts (currently Digic II to VI processor) and run the CHDK software, which will run a number of Intervalometer scripts, as well as capture RAW.

Better processor models:

  • A810
  • A1300 – 1400
  • A2300 – 2600
  • A3300 – 4000
  • SX240 – 260

A full list of Canon cameras supported is here: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Cameras

Canon A2300

2. GoPro Hero 5 Black

The GoPro Hero 5 will capture RAW as well as has the usual GoPro built in Intervalometer.

  • Fujifilm X30 & X70
  • Fujifilm X-E2, X-E2S, X-A3
  • Nikon Coolpix P7000, P7100, 7700 & P7800 – note: shortest setting is only 30s
  • Nikon J1, J2 & J3 – note: although not specified owners report shortest interval setting is 5s.
  • Olympus E-P5
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC GX7, GX8, GX80 & GX85
  • Samsung NX500

4. Sony Cameras with Time-Lapse App

Sony offers a Time-Lapse in-camera app for a number of their cameras:  Time Lapse App

  • NEX-5R, NEX-5T & NEX-6
  • a5000, a5100, a6000, a6300 & a6500
