Timed stills

I want to record a long running test (more than 24 hours), rather than recording a video, I would like to take still shots every 30 seconds or some other fixed interval.

Have you explored the time lapse feature? That’s pretty much exactly what it does.

Thank you! that’s exactly what I was looking for but I didn’t have a microSD card in the slot so the time lapse menu selection wasn’t available.

Assuming my calculations from a single 30 minute test time lapse in SD mode, interval = 3, are correct a 24 hour time lapse in SD, interval 3 would result in about an 8 minute 1 gigabyte video file. If anyone has found a similar spreadsheet online somewhere, please point me to it. I found a bunch of timelapse calculators and question the accuracy of a couple of them.
