I am having a very difficult time finding a new camera. Most mid-level consumer cameras do not have the ability to take time-lapse photos which, obviously, is a requirement. Many of the less expensive ones are made by off shore manufacturers without an (English) online presence which makes it impossible to review the manual for available features. And the product listings online don’t typically have much detail besides price and resolution. So far, the search for an affordable, name brand camera with the necessary functions has been fruitless and frustrating.
