I am planning on buying a dslr and looking mainly at a 100d.

One of the projects I would like to tackle is a series of photos of shiitake mushrooms fruiting on logs. So its a series of photos over about 10 days giving a 2 to 5 minutes film. I am looking at a photo every say 5 mins to 30 mins over the time.

Is there any way to auto fire the camera. I can set it up in a sheltered position, have mains electric if needed, could even have a laptop around. The simplest would be some sort of mechanical device as I understand neither the 100d or 10d have a sequential timer.

Any comments welcome. Thanks.

Yes, there are programmes that will fire the camera remotely, Pentax Remote Assistant for example which has a 'remote interval' feature and may do what you require.

If you are into designing and making electronic gadgets I expect something based on a 555 timer would be another way to go.
