To some degree, yes. Technically any camera that can take a photo can be used to create a time lapse video, but certain things make some more practical than others. For example, time lapse videos involve hundreds of images captured over a long period of time, which would be incredibly time-consuming with a regular camera. So, it’s much easier with some sort of built-in automation.
When choosing a dedicated camera for time lapse purposes, we suggest starting your search in the DSLR or Mirrorless markets, as these cameras have larger image sensors for capturing better quality images. Low light settings are no issue, and these cameras have more advanced manual functions.
