MISTAKE IN THE SUBJECT LINE: The camera is a 5D Mark III...
I would like to take time-lapsed images with my Canon 5DIII. I used to take astro images with a 20D, but that camera no longer works, and I've been using CCD cameras for a number of years now. So, I have a few basic questions:
- Can I get away with using just a USB cable to take images with the 5DIII from SGP (or any other application)? Back when I used a 20D (with Nebulosity at the time), I think that I needed a special cable to actually take the images, while the USB cable was just for downloading the images.
- Is ISO 1600 a good setting? I'll be using a zoom lens at 24mm which has a max aperture opening of f/4.0. I'll experiment, but my starting guess is ISO 1600, f/4.0, 30 second shutter, sRAW.
- Should I enable mirror lockup? If yes, does it lock/unlock on every image?
- Anything else that I should be aware of?
