Killing your shutter
In reply to TrippleScar, 10 months ago

A 5 minute video at only 24 fps is going to take 7200 shutter actuations.  If you use 30 fps it will take 9000.   Now try that a few (3) times a week for 6 weeks out of the year.  That quickly becomes 162000 shutter actuations in a year...not counting any other camera use.

IMHO, for time-lapse a camera with an electronic shutter makes more sense.
