Ill back up a bit. I heard of a camera that you can program to take pictures every 10 seconds however, I talked to a few camera buffs (professional and camera salesman in a good camera store) They didn't know what I was talking about
Now I think my chances are better now that I know what its called.
I'll ask for a camera with software that can plug into a laptop to act as an intervalometer
There are cameras that come with built in intervalometers but most don't. I have an intervalometer for my T2i that cost about $40. Plus, it came with free software that can turn my laptop into an intervalometer as well. Stand alone intervalometer don't cost that much, but they don't make them for every camera. Hope this helps.
