I was planning to do some timelapses in the near future, until I realised that if I leave my camera taking pictures for a week or 2, I will soon reach the max number of shutter count and my camera would break.
Then I read from an unverified source that during timelapse the shutter doesn't move, so there is no way to break it. I am confused.
Is it possible to take timelapses without physically destroying the shutter in a month? In particular, I am interested in Canon D80 model.
