Hello everyone! New here I've been looking into my first slr camera. I've been eyeing up the Nikon D3000 but I wanted to ask a few questions first. I'm interested in using it for time lapses, even though it doesn't have the capabilities built in. Can I use an intervalometer for this purpose? Are they typically expensive? Do they work well? I'm primarily interested in shooting time lapses of the night sky, and growing plants/fungi. Of course this isn't the only reason I'm picking it up. I'm heading to New Zealand in March and want to be able to capture some of scenery there. Are there other entry level slr's that have time lapse capabilities built in, without the need for an intervalometer? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.
