    First off, if this is the wrong place for this I'm sorry. It was a toss up between here or "Digital Photography", I posted here cause this mainly is about using the MacBook.

    Ok, First: I'm wondering if there is anyway for a "remote capture" from the camera to the MacBook. (Having pictures saved right to MacBook)

    Second: I was wondering can the MacBook be used as an intervalometer for time lapse? (setting interval between pictures)

    Any info will be appreciated! I want to pick up a Canon Rebel XS and this is a deciding factor if i will buy this camera.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    The intervalometer is the most important thing!
    I dont HAVE TO have my computer tethered but I just figured if im already using the computer as the intervalometer then i might as well be saving the pics right to the computer.

    Thanks for your input!

    yeah, tethering is what you want for yours first question. Aperture is capable of doing that if your camera is supported.

    Good news: Canon SLRs come with free software called EOS Utility that can handle the tethering and intervals.
