    Hi there
    I have a project that and part of it, is photography, which needs to be a circuit diagram. It needs to take a picture every 3-6 seconds, and it would be attached to a digital camera.

    Please do help me:confused:

    Does the camera have an input for a remote control shutter release?

    The circuit you would need depends upon the requirements of the camera you use. For example, the remote shutter release on many digital cameras is nothing more than a dry contact closure. You could use a NE555 astable multivibrator to operate and release a relay every 3 - 6 seconds. The shutter release would run through a set of contacts on the relay.
