Cameras with a time lapse feature can be programmed to automatically shoot a number of frames over a period of time or with a certain time interval between each frame. For instance, a camera on a tripod in time lapse mode could be set up to shoot frames of a flower opening or a bird building a nest. Some cameras feature a built-in time lapse mode; others allow you to set up time lapse as part of a Remote Capture application. This requires the camera to be connected to a computer.
