@connersz, actually nothing stops you from doing that. If your gears are insensitive to uv and you want to buy a protection, nothing stops you from buying plain glass protection. If something is unclear, please let me know so I will modify the answer.

comment How can I improve this picture of my friend on vacation?
I'm doing photography for 20 years and I learned something today! I have always considered these photos waste of film (storage). But now I realize I was wrong. Your point ("In fact, they're pretty great...") is something I have never payed attention to. The purpose of these photos is not to create a masterpiece of technicality, but to capture a memory. A reminder of good times, places they have been and etc. I have been so involved with technical concerns that I forgot about this equally important aspect of photography. Thank you for this excellent reminder dear sir. I would +10 if I could.

comment How to setup a long running timelapse?
@mrwooser, referring to my comment above, if you are going to do what I guessed, and if your camera is supporter by gphoto2, your only concern would be the power! Probably you can find one of those ac power adapters for less than half of your budget. Furthermore, with 3*30*5=450 shots I don't think you are going to have storage problem.

comment How to setup a long running timelapse?
@connersz, actually Raspberry Pi makes sense. TLDR; it is helpful for timing. Long answer: It seems the target of this timelapse is the construction of the building, hence there will be no night shooting (I think!). It is possible to install a tiny linux on Raspberry Pi, install gphoto2, and do timings that are not possible with internal mechanisms of either of aforementioned cameras.
