Nice idea. In a tour of Dr. Phil Mason's lair, he we see cameras indoors at windows, covered with a box and black cloth. This Video includes three time-lapse views in different directions. The weatherproofing enclosure is the house! Since the point is to show the analemma which has the sun move left and right, you do want to, expose at 24 hour ...


There are remote shutter release cords for most cameras fro less than US$10, and even inexpensive intervalometers, such as this for less than US$20:http://www.amazon.com/Neewer-Shutter-Release-Remote-Control/dp/B003Q9RERY/. You might want to do something more complex, though, such as taking the photo at exactly Noon each day, which is not precisely 24 ...


I'd go with the G10 (presumably using CHDK) with a large SD card and an AC adapter. I've used a similar setup to create timelapse films of over 10,000 captures a day of full resolution JPG and RAW files. My setup was different in that I used a G7, then a G9 and now several G1Xs. I think all of these cameras are rated for a life of 100,000 shutter ...


For your purpose — product photography for a webshop — I don't think you actually need very high color accuracy, as long as it's within a reasonable human tolerance. And, since you control the lighting (right?), for that, all you really need is consistency — something that will let you set a white balance manually, or shoot in RAW. Set up a color profile, ...


The Canon 1D X has a shutter durability rating of 400,000 shots. You just said "thousands of pictures per day". You could likely get 400,000 shots out of the body, and potentially even more. But once that threshold is passed and failure occurs, you of course don't have to throw away the camera. You might be able to get 100 days out of a 1D X shooting 3-4k ...


If you are willing to use java, here is code I used to make images square. After this you can easily fit those in fixed size square canvas using photoshop. BufferedImage image = ImageIO.read(IMAGEPATH); int w = image.getWidth(); int h = image.getHeight(); BufferedImage square= new BufferedImage(Math.max(w,h),Math.max(w,h),BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_ARGB); ...
