I wonder if there is the possibility to add an intervalometer option via firmware to a Nikon D3200 (similar to the one in the D5200). I want to do time lapse photography and also mount the camera on a drone for special uses. In this case I need to take pictures every two seconds.

Nope. You may want to follow this location for any 3rd party firmware updates for that feature besides any Nikon updates for that model. But in the meantime, your best bet is an external lightweight unit that can be taped to the drone. Here's one helpful guide.

  • Um, may want to change the link to nikonhacker.com, since most of the information links on Simeon Pilgrim's page direct there, anyway.

  • I appreciate the answer, I was suspecting that, and I was looking for a way so save weight for the drone. You are right a light weight wired soultion is the way to go. Aug 23, 2015 at 1:18
