Can K30 be set to take photo at certain time of day?

It would be nice to be able to leave my K30 on a tripod for a few hours, have it be prefocused, and then as a certain time of day approaches, the internal clock at a certain time would trigger the camera to meter and take a photo. Is this possible with the K30, or any camera for that matter? Thanks

There are separate intervalometers that plug into the camera, and perhaps one may have that feature. I would expect it to not be one of the cheaper ones. I've never seen it in a camera menu.

You can set a timer in the Interval shooting menu.

According to the English user manual page 126 set "Start Interval" to "Set Time" then set "Start Time". No option for setting a date.
