Intervalometer blocks the camera for too long - how to get around it?

Thank you James. It works perfect on my Pixel timer and I think the Hähnel Giga T Pro II is an intervalometer too (please correct me if I am wrong). I was thinking if it makes sense to use it also on a motion controller for a slider. But the longer I think about it I guess it is not necessary as one will not use the really short intervals as the slider also has to move between the shots... Did I get this right?
Best regards

I have tried your experiment with using an internal intervalometer on my Nikon D700 camera.  Settings were as follows:
shutter - 1/30 sec, 2 second interval, manual settings.  The buffer did not decrease in value.  Only when going to 1 second did the buffer size decrease.  So at least for my camera if I use 2 seconds or more interval everything should be OK.

Yes, thee D700 has rather low resolution in comparison. But consider that you normally won't be shooting at such short exposure times but rather use long exposures, mostly only one or two seconds less then the interval. That's when the buffers of many cameras start filling up.

Hello, instructions for intervalometer hack state: "Since the colors of the inner wires are nor standardized, your best option is to cut the whole cord somewhere and then use an continuity tester to find out, which color is related to which contact." I have never used a continuity tester before. Can someone tell me how I would use one in this way? Thank you

hi gwegner,
I am using PULSE (from Alpine lab) as my main wireless control for (interval, ISO, Shutter speed, F-stop), will that be an issue on this AF signal delay? The dongle is connected to my d810 via USB cable.
