Best camera for static timed use? ?
I need a camera that can be positioned in a static location where it will take a picture on the hour, every hour. This is for work purposes.
A picture will be required on the hour for 24 hours a day, would need the picture to then be automatically uploaded to a share drive/folder. The camera wouldn't be easily accessible so ideally it would need to be permanently connected to a power supply so that is doesn't require much maintenance.
Any guidance/advice would be appreciated.

A DSLR would be a good option, but not just any DSLR. You would need a DSLR that supports tethering which allows the photo to be automatically sent to a computer after each shot is taken.
Another option is to use a security camera set to take a photo at the desired interval.
I'd call a shop like B&H (bhphotovideo.com) or adorama.com and get some expert advice on which system would be best for your needs. Both B&H and adorama are real camera stores in New York that have been around for about 50 years serving amateurs and professionals alike.
