Time lapse photography is pretty neat, but the gear needed to make it happen is not terribly cheap. DIY options do abound, but are often rather complicated to setup and usually only work for a small number of cameras. One of the nice things about this project, the DIY Intervalometer, is that it is inexpensive to make, straightforward to use, and it works with most DSLRs. 3 cheers for Instructables!Randofo. Although it was designed for his Penatx DSLR, this intervalometer should work with most major brands of DSLR cameras such as Nikons and Canons.
