Canon 60d Compatible Interval Triggers

Hi guys,

I need help quick, I need an interval trigger that's compatible with a canon 60D, I spoke to one of my tutors at my college and they said they don't have one for a 60D and suggested that I should look for a 3rd party one online and to not be tricked for a standard shutter release one, does anyone know of any simple to use ones, not to expensive, under 20?

For my 18th Im having a party outside in my garden and I want to set my camera up to take pictures through the window every 20-25minutes throughout the night and of course I can't have someone sitting taking the pictures so I need to a remote or something to do it for me...

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Re: Canon 60d Compatible Interval Triggers

I have 50D version of this trigger. Found it worked fine for timelapse photography when shooting stars.

If you are using it on a birthday - check you get the interval control going as you want it to, before leaving it alone. I've confused myself with the interval before.

Cheers, Yeah I have a friend who uses an interval trigger and they've somewhat explained the intervals to me, I've decided to do 25second intervals over the night, the party being 6hours long, it'll be about 860 images... I've got a plug-in for Lightroom to do the rest of the work after that, I posted this thread before a friend told me he had an old intervalometer that he rarely uses anymore that I could borrow, if it works I'd buy my own... but It's confusing cause Im not sure what shutter speed to set my camera on, because the daylight is going to change throughout the night, i.e starting at 6 it could be daylight and by 12-2am it'll probably be really dark...

Re: Canon 60d Compatible Interval Triggers

Put in AV - Select an aperture - that way the camera should change the shutter speed according to the light. May want a reasonable ISO to ensure that later on it still works ok - eg people don't blur as the shutter speed will be long. Make sure the interval meter attaches to your camera. The Canon connections have changed, so I can't use my 50D version on my 650D (same connection as yours).

You could always go up to camera once darkness falls and change the ISO / Attach a flash ? Maybe try out the setting of F stop / ISO at dark before the event.

Ahh thats a good idea, well best thing is having a setting at the start of the night that I don't need to change, the thing is, it's my 18th so I'll probably be drinking so I probably wont be in any state to change it later in the night... but I could put it on AV and let the Shutter Speed change itself... and I couldn't really have a flash because it's going to be behind glass, so the light would hit the glass and block everything out I think I'll have to get the intervalometer and just test it the night before and see what happens, I think it will fit because it has 2.5mm jack on the intervalometer and that's what the 60D takes

Re: Canon 60d Compatible Interval Triggers

Yep the 2.5mm Jack is the one you want.

Yeah a test the night before is possible. Depends what you want out of the results, in some way some later stuff with people blurring / ghosting could turn out quite good / or bad depending on how you look at it.

Drinking on your 18th - I'm shocked

Aha thanks again, yeah I think I've got it all sorted then, yeah some blurring could look good, I do want them as memorable images not for effects, I want them to recognisable and still in good quality and in focus.

I'll definitely be drinking!

Re: Canon 60d Compatible Interval Triggers

I know it may be a little late with this reply but have you thought about downloading magic lantern onto your camera. It is a free software program( they accept donations of course) it contains loads of cool add ons for your camera including a time lapse feature that you are looking for

Re: Canon 60d Compatible Interval Triggers

EDIT: I had a look on the website and I saw that it's an ad-on you download to your camera itself, I don't know if I feel comfortable downloading it to my camera incase anything goes wrong?

Re: Canon 60d Compatible Interval Triggers

The magic lantern software downloads onto your memory card not your camera.
If your camera was to fail in any way you just take out the memory card and know one knows.
I'm thinking of getting a canon 5d and will not hesitate at using magic lantern it is superb.
Next time you are near my part of the world i can give you a demo.
