The Coolpix A has a built-in intervalometer that allows you to select your start time, the length of each interval (up to 24 hours apart) and the number of intervals (up to 999). You can use the intervalometer on the Coolpix A in either Single or Continous shooting mode but it will only take a single frame per interval.
When you shoot continuously on the Coolpix A the camera takes photos at about 4 fps while the shutter release button is pressed down. You could create a time-lapse effect using photos shot in this mode, but it would require you to be with the camera during the duration of the shooting. Using the Interval Timer shooting option allows you to set up the COOLPIX A and leave it to shoot on its own.
More info on the COOLPIX A's Interval Timer shooting option can be found starting on page 127 of the COOLPIX A manual. The COOLPIX A manual can be found here:https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...
