Timelapse photography

Control of cameras for time-lapse photography

Using PICs

PICs (programmable integrated circuits) to have timers etc so it would be possible to make a decent time-lapse controller using a PIC but it would take a lot of effort to programme. Advantages: low cost, lost power consumption. Disadvantages: would take ages to develop, would only work with a camera that I'd hacked, would only control one camera, can't be network-attached, can't control camera settings etc
