Hi All!

I am looking for an amateur camera (such as Casio Exilim e.g.) which has a special function:
The camera should take a picture every 10 seconds. It would be good if you could enter the time period by yourself, e.g. 5, 10 or 30 seconds.
I want to place the camera on a fixed platform and it should take the pictures until the memory is full. Of course the camera should auto-focus each time when it takes a picture and it should adjust ISO and other attributes automatically for each picture(e.g. if the lightning conditions have changed since the last picture).

Is there any camera out there that has this function??

I hope I have expressed myself clearly, please excuse my bad language, I am from Germany!

Thanks for your help!

What you are looking for is an intervalometer. Some cameras have them built-in and others can have intervalometers added on.

Thanks TCav!

Are there some digital amateur cameras (such as Casio Exilim e.g.) which have an intervalometer built-in? Can you tell me some?

I believe that the Canon PowerShot SD Series include an intervalometer. This permits what they call Time-Lapse photography.

There are others, I'm sure, but the Canon PowerShot SD Series wouldn't be a bad choice for most applications.
