    Electronic shutter release / timer for M 240?

    So I have been dabbling with time lapse over in Sony land.
    I have a cheapo Neewer brand remote, so I can set the camera shutter to 2 seconds, remote interval to 3 seconds.. hit go, and just let it run for a while.

    Now Leica has the classic mechanical shutter release so it is compatible with decades of shutter releases.
    However, are there any sort of electro-mechanical releases that allow setting a timer interval (hit button once, let it activate camera every X seconds)?
    Otherwise, is there some other port I am missing on the M240 which allows use of electronic release cable?

    thx!

    I'm sure there is a way to do it with the optional GPS grip which has a sync port. I think PWs can do it. Maybe the hotshoe might also be able to do it with a PW?

    That or you could buy a timex with an alarm, and use your fingers.

    Though if I'm not mistaken, both the Q and the S-007 can do interval shooting. So maybe it'll show up in the next M firmware?

    I use PW's on my M240 with MF grip and SCA Adapter. Time lapse is another thing and I have no idea as I use PW for studio flash from time to time. The reason I use the SCA adapter is that I use the EVF on camera hot shoe.

    This is what I'm talking about:

    (I just can't remember if I could get it to work with the M-P or just with the M9/S... I have to many camera bodies, forgive me)

    Thanks!

    Does it also work in hot-shoe if the hot shoe is free (I don't use EVF)?

    I don't know if the PW+3 works the way the MultiMAX does (time-lapse wise). You might want to do a bit more research into the MultiMAX, as it does time lapse.
