I was going to shoot some time lapse with a Nikon Super Zoom-8 but the manual dosen't say what the shutter speed for single frame is; it just says that you should expose it manually. Thanks in advance!

Single frame shutter-speed is usally the same as 18 fps so I would start with the fps setting there, take a light reading in auto and then make your decision and set it manually and then click away with your remote jack.

If you were planning on using an external meter I'd guess the shutter angle is between 150- 170 degrees and set shooting speed to 18.
