Default Continuous self timer shooting

Is there a digital camera that will shoot a picture every five seconds or every 30 seconds, automatically? Preferably in the prosumer price range. Thank you.

There is a remote control which works on the Canon 10D (which is "prosumer" but isn't cheap) which can do some amazingly flexable things with timing shots.

Here is a review of it:
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/tc-80n3.shtml

Why I mention it is that maybe it works for other canon cameras which are more in your price range? The review lists these models (which are all expensive and not "prosumer" except the 10D)
EOS-3, EOS-1V, EOS-D30 , EOS-D60, EPS-10D, EOS 1D and EOS 1Ds

But the review is fairly old. Maybe it works with others?

Some cameras can be controlled by a computer which will give them the time lapse feature; many Olympus C-series cameras can be controlled with the free Pinetree software.

My Canon PowerShot G3 has the abillity shoot in set intervals from 1 to 60 minutes and from 2 to 100 images can be shot and hot be ties to a computer via USB cable. The manual recommends use of the wall power adapter for this function.

I know the Canon S45 has the function. And from Steve's review of the both the G5 and S50, he lists in the available options of the record menus that both the G5 and S50 also support this function.

Same with the D7i/Hi.

It's called an intervalometer function and the camera will automatically turn On/Off during each exposure to conserve power if the interval between shots is greater than 1 minute!

... and the E10/20 too:
