Shoot Time Lapse Photos with Any Camera Using a Motorized Finger

Time-lapses are usually created using intervalometers — devices that electronically trigger the shutter on a camera at set intervals for long periods of time — but what if you don’t have a camera that can use one? If you’re good with your hands, you can create a mechanical “intervalometer” that uses a motorized finger to trigger your shutter instead. Instructables member Constructer wrote up a pretty neat tutorial showing how you can build one yourself.
