    Has anyone used a Canon 10d for short burst (20-30 seconds @ say 3 to 4
    frames per second) time lapse photography?
    Assumedly this will require tethering to a laptop with suitable software.(?)
    Lighting is outdoor, available. Large jpeg OK.
    Perceived problem is buffer clearing at this burst rate.(?)
    Suggestions/experiences & alternatives appreciated. Thanks,
    Warren

    The 10D can only take a maximum of 3 frames per second and the buffer
    only holds 9 so you can only burst shoot up to 3 seconds after that you
    have to wait for the buffer to clear.. You could tether it to a
    computer and use the supplied software to trigger it remotely at
    a slower rate to get more frames. Say 1 per second for 9 seconds..

    The 1D Mark II it believe will do 8.5 fps up to 40 frames..

    If you don't need a faster frame rate than 1 frame/s and can work with
    intervals of integer seconds you don't need a computer: you can use the
    TC-80N3 remote timer instead.

    Only up to 99 shots...

    AIUI if the frame count is set to 0 it will keep firing until the camera
    runs out of memory or film. It's surprising that the counter only runs
    to 99 though.
