    I'm in the market for a new digital camera, would like to have the
    "time lapse" feature that shoots one frame every couple of seconds, or
    thereabouts. I've seen it on some still cameras with a rather short
    time limit - hour or so. Are there any still cameras that do it

    Is it available on video cameras with a longer duration? I'd like to
    use it for some semi-surveillance kinds of apps (birds and bugs,
    actually). A video camera with a few gig of flash memory and this
    capability might be ideal.

    If it could be triggered with a motion-sensor, even better!

    Getting hard to tell the still cameras from the videos, some of the
    little hybrids look cute, new Canon TX1 looks hot, thanks for any

    good idea, especially the wireless variety, but it doesn't give me an
    excuse to go buy a new toy! well, I guess it is a new toy itself for
    me, and I'm overdue for that, too, but I prefer the more portable.

    Just abut all Canon digitals come with software that allows you to do this
    while tethered to a computer. I've played around with stop-motion animation
    using various Canon DSLRs, but it can be done manually with just about any

    Kodak P850 does up to 99 shots at intervals from 10 seconds to 24 hours.
