    So I have shot a few timelapse with this camera over the years. This summer I plan on shooting almost exclusively timelapse with it. The problem is with the internal intervolometer it shuts down after a while. It seemed during astro would be a couple hours. Just now at 80 degrees in the daytime it lasted 20 minutes before it shuts down the power and obviously stops shooting. Today I'm shooting on 64g 80ms cards. 1/2500. Buffering is never an issue.
    Does anyone know what could be causing this? Camera turning off during shoot.

    Power conservation setting Canon has built in to protect users, perhaps?

    I installed MagicLantern on my 7D (which I only ever use on a tripod - it weighs a ton) and have left the camera running over night several times to do star trails, with no problem. They do warn you that there are some risks with the software, but my camera is working well.
