    I wonder
    If any knows anything about a firmware hack for making the NIKON D40x programmable so it takes pictures automatically every, previously set, number of seconds.

    If there's not any hack yet i wonder if there's anyone among the users of this forum who could write it!

    I'm sure its possible to do this and such feature would be highly appreciated!

    THANK YOU

    I've never heard of such a 'hack'...but if you tether the camera to a computer, Nikon software can control the camera, which I believe includes interval/time-lapse.

    Yes quite unlike the $40 cable releases you could buy from ebay which don't, and provide the same functionality.
