Hello everybody!

I am hired to do a timelapse with a Canon 5D Mark III and the request is that I shoot between 9am and 5pm only. Does anyone know of a intervalometer that will allow for start and end times based on a 24 hour clock?

Thanks so much for your time, I appreciate it!

Lips moving while thinking.
At the lowest level, you could attach a timer either to your camera power supply, assuming a remote power supply. Which you might need for such an extended shooting time.
or attach the timer to the cable triggering the shutter.
At the next lowest level is to calculate the amount of card space needed and have the card fill up just as you take the last shot. As if we haven't done that before.
Fancier solutions include having your computer run the camera and programming in a timer function.
