    i found this website the other day http://www.dutchtechies.com/dutchtechies-blog/2009/3/19/timelapse-movies-using-os-x.html
    which shows you how to take pictures using a 350D camera (or any other camera).

    This method doesn't work with all cameras but luckily like the articles author I also have a 350D but when i went to try this automator said it didn't recognise my camera?!

    can anyone help me or direct me to a good website where i might get an answer...

    many thanks
