Time-Lapse Intervalometer

This was an interesting and mildly frustrating project.  I busted an old camera trying to get this to work, but in the end I was able to take some cool videos with it (and salvage the camera again for its single purpose).  The design is based largely on the instructable for the 555-timer based intervalometer, seen here:

I had to make some changes to the circuit, replacing the transistor with a relay to fake push-button on the camera shutter.  It’s extremely fragile but works well and can produce some fascinating videos.  More info is available on my Photography News page:  http://greg-kennedy.com/2011/08/01/time-lapse-photography/
