I have an old Samsung NX1000 that is just sitting around doing nothing. I'd like to do some timelapse photography with it -and need to get an intervalometer - looking on Amazon and eBay I can see some suitable and all have a micro USB plug to connect to the camera. Now I also seen an intervalometer for the Sony A7 but at nearly half the price and looking in to product this too connects using a micro USB plug.

So can I use the cheaper Sony intervalometer on the Samsung camera?

No, you cannot.

While the Sony multi-terminal connector looks like it's micro-USB, it isn't, really. doc-diy.net's list of shutter release pinouts has an image of the connector, and its wiring is nothing like a micro USB connector. It has an additional 10 pins (15 in all) vs. the standard 5 used in micro-USB.

Samsung's cable release uses a standard micro-USB connector, as shown in a diagram on instructables.com.
