Hey guys, I have tried googling and found out that I can set up a time lapse feature with my computer and the software that came with my camera. I tried messing around on the software but could not figure out how to use the software as a Intervalometer. I would like to just press start and go till I hit stop or something but if I have to set a certain amount of time I can just put a very long time and just stop it when I want right?

You can also use something like this. Then you don't need to carry around your computer all the time

Use Magic Lantern (which has this built in) or tether if you want a no-cost-added thing.

A 3rd party grip with one built in is another option, but I find M/L to be a better choice as it's always there.

Why not bulb mode with a simple trigger?

Magic Lantern not only does Intervalometer settings, it does a ton more stuff. Just make sure you read up on the installation and follow the directions when installing it. Its pretty simple, but not something you want to mess up.

I saw your post yesterday. I was going to reply with Magic Lantern suggestion (no additional hardware needed) but I hesitated because you asked for tethered shooting. You're going to love Magic Lantern.

The ML time lapse setup is great. Fully adjustable bulb ramping for sunrises and sunsets, etc. That's all just a small part of the total program, though. I predict you are going to love Magic Lantern.

EDIT: BTW... ML is free, but if you do use it, please consider making a donation to them so they can continue building cool stuff for more bodies.
