I need to take a close up picture of an object at up to 8 different, pre-programmed times a day (i.e. 6:00am, 7:00am, 7:30am, 12:00pm, 2:30pm, 6:00pm, 7:00pm, 8:00pm).

I have looked at trail cameras but they seem to be mostly motion triggered. Intervalometers seem to be only programmable at time intervals like every so many hours.

I will have Wifi access at the camera location and would like to minimize costs.

  • Hi Terri and welcome to photo.SE! I've edited to be more about solving the photographic program than about equipment recommendation as the answers for those questions become outdated very soon. You can rollback the edit if you don't like it. Out of curiousity: why do you need to photograph an object up close at these times? – Saaru Lindestøkke Dec 10 '20 at 17:30
  • The object has a screen that changes and I need to record the changes of the screen at those times. – Terri S Dec 10 '20 at 17:58
  • Ah right. The object doesn't have another way of accessing what's displayed on the screen? Maybe it has an USB or serial port or something? – Saaru Lindestøkke Dec 10 '20 at 18:24

    Why do not use intervalometer every half hour and remove the unnecessary images? – Romeo Ninov Dec 10 '20 at 18:33
