Seems like a daft oversight, but I suppose the main use for the intervalometer is time lapse videos where you'd only really need the screen for the 1st frame.

S5is was a great camera

Separate intervalometer?
That sounds annoying. Quite often cameras will have weird bugs like this that get fixed via a firmware update, is yours running on the original firmware or a later version?

Intervelometer is great but for some reason on my d3300 itíll only fire of every shot through the view finder. Switch it to live view and itíll take the first shot and thatís it 🤷‍♂️

I have a Nikon D5200. It has an onboard Intervalometer, lots of options on that. I had bought a Hahnel Giga T Pro, but now only use the Nikon onboard features.

I think it's in all nikons from the d5*** up.
It'd be quicker to list the cameras without the feature.

Since theres no budget or any other requirements to go on I'll suggest a fuji gfx 100

I'm unsure about the consumer end Nikon DSLR's, but my D750 has an infinitely settable interval timer, set the amount of shots ( I set 30), then the time between shots ( I set 6 secs), fish on the mat with camera all set and hit start, you'll end up with several shots to select from and delete the rest, often a*se pics .

Most better specced cameras have a built in intervalometer, no real difference between them for catch shot purposes.just one less thing to forget(or forget batteries for)

I use the built in ones on my olympus cameras and use a cheap shutter release on an extension to start/stop it without stepping away from the mat

I have a Cannon Powershot S5 IS, bought it years ago and it has a custom self timer built in. I think I have it set for a delay time of 10 seconds, followed by 10 shots at 2 seconds apart (slightly longer if your using flash as it needs to recharge the flash unit). This allows me time to set the camera going, pick up the fish, take 4 shots, put the fish back down on the mat, spin the mat round and then pick the fish up and time for 4 more shots.

It also has a rotatable viewfinder which is handy as you can turn it to face forward or upwards. Once I have took my shots, I can confirm they are OK in a couple of seconds by flicking the switch and checking them on the viewfinder and then slip the fish back if they are Ok.

Plus you can run them off 4 AA batteries so no messing about having to charge batteries.

You can pick them up off Ebay at good a good price.

Why built in? As an intervalometer is so much more versatile than a simple timer

Agree...

Plus having an external intervalometer you can add an extension lead and have it next to you by the mat so you dont have to return to the camera once the fish is out

For a compact camera, I think the CANON IXUS 185 has a custom camera. They're about £100 from Argos. With a bank stick adaptor and bank stick, jobs a good un.

If you have a look on the Currys website, on the specification page for each camera, it will tell you whether or not the camera has a custom timer.

A lot of the Sony cameras have built in remote functions with numerous timers remotes available.
