I'm look for an intervalometer that works with a Canon PowerShot SX60. I want to do some timelapse photography. I'm not having much luck locating one. Does anyone know of such a device?
Two ways you might do this:
According to PC World, a smart phone or tablet can control the camera. "You can zoom the lens, set the self-timer, control the flash output, and fire the shutter." If you can find (or write) an app to do this, you have a free intervalometer.
CHDK (Canon Hack Development Kit) can be installed from memory card in a few minutes. This makes no permanent change to the camera firmware; the card can be removed and reformatted as needed. There is a tutorial for time lapse photography using CHDK.
So either way, this should cost you nothing to try.
Does that camera have a plug for a cable release? If it works as a simple push-button, you could use any common/cheap intervalometer and add an adaptor for the plug needed.
Does it not have such a jack? Then how do you expect to hook it up at all? If it takes commands over USB and uses the fairly new USB profile for standardizing that, then I've seen high-end intervalometers that use USB.
No plug at all? Use Lego to build a gizmo to push the button, and program it using the mindstorm brick or have it commanded by a plain intervalometer that works by connecting 2 pins on a jack.
