Best Time Lapse Camera?

orangefruits Dec 25, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
So my 5D MKII is broken, hopefully swapping it for a 6D this week. However, I don't fancy killing the shutter cycles with the time lapse work I'm doing.

Anyone know of a way to lock up the mirror on the 6D/5D MK II or know of any cameras that don't require the mirror to move for each shot?

I am maybe looking at different manufacturers and using a Canon lens convertor to save on new glass, I wont be focusing much in time lapse work anyway so the lack of AF won't be an issue? I just don't want to ruin my new camera by shooting time lapses on it.

Thanks in advance.

Try a Canon Rebel then?

Sorry, the reason I ask is because at the moment my time lapses are about 1,000 shots long and the 6D can only handle about 100,000. That's only 100 time lapses?!
