comment Is there a quiet, affordable Nikon F mount camera (for timelapse)?
Re. gphoto2 support for the J1: gphoto's camera support page says "Cameras capable of MTP, PTP or PictBridge are supported without needing to be specifically listed here." I would be surprised if the J1 didn't support MTP, so maybe it would work with gphoto2 without camera-specific support (at least as far as downloading and deleting images goes, which would be enough for you if you use the built-in time-lapse function)?

Most 5-year-old compacts were already SDHC compatible, allowing card sizes of up to 32GB. With image sizes at 1MB tops (more doesn't make sense in a compact camera), you get around a year's worth of images on a 16GB card, and 2 years with a 32GB card. So I wouldn't worry about card sizes. Besides, you'll certainly check on the system from time to time, and a card swap should only take a few seconds, no? Also, gphoto2 seems to offer delete options (--delete-file and --delete-all-files) which if they work would obviate any card size concerns.
