SX50HS Time Lapse CHDK
Took the plunge and loaded CHDK and used an "intervalometer" script to do time lapse. Not as scary as it sounds and all I did with the intervalometer script was use the menu to put in a figure (in seconds) for the lapse - in this case 10 seconds). Wrapped my gorillapod around the balcony to our bedroom and, working out I needed to NOT record RAW and to switch off the screen to conserve battery - yes a bit of trial and error! It really is very easy and loads of fun. Wonder if my shutter has a MTBF!!!!!
