    Hello everyone, I'm kinda new here but really the only reason I registered to this forum is because I have an aggravating question that has been bugging me ever since a bought a Nikon D60.

    I want to make a video something like this: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrGcd6PN7EE]YouTube - Time Lapse[/ame]

    but I can't find an option anywhere on my camera on how to setup an interval so it can take photos by itself when I'm not there. I don't know if I need a remote or what but I would really appreciate if I can get some insight to get this working. Thanks!

    in order to take time lapse like that you'll need something like this:

    [ame]http://www.amazon.com/TR2MAG-Timer-Remote-Control-Shutter/dp/B00181WFN0/ref=sr_1_31?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1234714372&sr=8-31[/ame]

    that way you can set it to take a picture every xx seconds for a certain amount of time.

    or you can connect it to your computer with some software ( i don't know if nikon supports this i know canon does)

    I just downloaded the Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 and apparently it has a built in time lapse function...but that means I have to carry around my laptop whenever I want to do a time lapse which sucks.

    -- That link that you directed me to says it only works for the D70/80 though. I have the D60 but it might work, I don't know. But thank for the insight. I really appreciate it.

    /sigh

    So no one has any insight? I'm going to BH Photo & Video in the city tomorrow and I wanted to have a plan when I set foot into that store.
