When I had a film camera, I used to love to take time lapse photos.

I have a 10-year old analog camera that's dying and needs to be replaced. Do
any digital video cameras allow for time-lapse? It seems easy enough. Store
images in memory and then write them to the media whenever memory fills up.

Another way to do this is if the camera is connected to the computer, and the
computer directs the camera to take a picture, and can upload it if desired.
Many of the high end prosumers, and DSLRs can do this, though sometimes you
have to buy an additional piece of software. Be sure to get an AC adaptor for
the camera if you are going to be doing it for an extended period of time.

The Canon S1 IS will do it. Up to 100 exposures (with a
large enough Compact Flash card) at intervals from 1 to 60
minutes.

Nikon Capture control with a D70 connected to a computer/laptop can do
time lapse. The images go direct to the hard drive. It is fun!

My old Canon A60 came with a remote capture utility that allows timed
photos with the option of storing the images directly to the attached PC.

The interval is adjustable from 5 seconds to 60 minutes.

I'm pretty sure the same set of utilities comes with all Canon cameras,
and other vendors probably have the same.

My Epson 850z has built-in time lapse shooting. My Fuji S2 will do
time lapse under control of the (windows) "camera shooting software)
it came bundled with.

A time-lapse facility is built directly into the Nikon Coolpix 8400 and
(probably) the Nikon 8800.

I have done some time lapse clips using Olympus C3030
and computer software.

Some results. http://www.hot.ee/tpman/timelapse/

For first clip there actually over 2300 pictures was taken.
Camera SM card could not have enough memory. Using
computer I don't have that limit. Thought with today media
sizes over 1GB it is not longer big limiting factor.
