Time lapse on D100, Power issues

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Andrew McDonald, Jul 31, 2003.

  1. I am having a new above ground pool installed tomorrow. I thought it
    would be fun to set up my D100 with the Camera Control software and fire
    off a shot every 5 or 10 minutes to document the excavation and assembly
    of the pool.

    The batteries on the D100 are great and last forever EXCEPT when
    connected to a PC. Has anyone done anything like this and how long can
    I expect the batteries to last. I won't be using the flash or anything
    and the pictures will be going straight the PC hard drive.

    I figure it needs to last around 6 hours or so. I have two EN-EL3
    batteries which will be freshly charged in the battery pack.

    The only time I have done any time-lapse photography with my D-100, I
    have had it hooked up to the option AC adaptor (which I got for CCD
    cleaning) and my laptop. I would think that with two EN-EL3 batteries, you
    should be just fine. 1 pic every five minutes = 12 pictures per hour * 6
    hours = 72 images.
