I have shot a bit of time tapse in the past with a 16mm bolex camera, a watch, and hours of my time. This of course was before I found out there was a intervelometer attachment tfor this camera. I also own a Nikon D80 that I want to conect with my mac and do automted timelapse for extended periods of time. The only problem is that a lot of the software availble to do the dosen't recognize Digital SLRs or sometimes will recognize one brand but not the other.

Does anyone know a type of software that will work with a Nikon to do timelapse?

Framethief? I don't know if its SLR capability is brand or model specific but I know a lot of people that only use that program and make some wonderful work.

The software that you are looking for would be "Nikon Capture." More info here:

Nikon Capture 4

If I recall, the software is around $100, but also gives you a limited free trial to see if you like it. Basically it's a remote camera control (via computer), with added intervalometer controls. Works great with a D70....may need a software update or something to be compatible with newer cameras such as a D80.

One issue, however, is it eats up your camera battery. I'd have a few extra on standby, or look to have a power source handy.
