    Hello my friends

    I am about to do a long term timelapse (we are talking about years) with a Canon 7d, my plan is to take one picture at a determined hour every day so that the shadows don`t vary much and we can see the translation of the earth as we see the rotation in a short term timelapse with the shadows. Until that point there is no problem, the thing is I want to program the camera so that it takes 3 or 4 pictures a day at different hours each, and have each different hour pictures stored in a specific folder on the card instead of all the pictures in the same folder, so I don`t have to pick manually each different hour when doing the quicktime. Also I need different settings on the camera at each hour, I cant use the same for taking a picture at 1pm than one at 11 pm, is there a way to program the camera to take each picture in different settings without going to set it every day?
    What I want to accomplish is 4 different timelapses at different hours each from the same point of view throughout some years.

    Thanks for your help.

    Cheers.
