My trusty Canon Powershot has, umm, expired.
It cries “low battery” and shuts down about 30 minutes after I change the batteries. I guess hacking it to take continuous interval shots was more than its little mechanical heart could bear. Sad that I didn’t get a chance to do more timed-motion animation.
On the bright side I get to research digital SLRs and look for a camera that might have a time lapse and/or adjustable continuous interval shooting feature.
