Best Time-Lapse Controller?

Hey All,

I'm still shooting with a K10D, but I've got some great lenses and have missed some amazing opportunities because I lack a time-lapse controller. Years back there was one that was only about $100 to do some pretty complicated stuff, though it all had to be pre-programed in your computer, but I'm wondering if there's some standard go-to products on the market now at similar prices.

Anyone doing time-lapse photography and have some suggestions? I could spend up to around $500 on the unit. I'd use it mostly for scenery (not ready for astro stuff quite yet!).

There's a forum here that has a lot of time lapse info: Timescapes - Digital Timelapse Discussion - Index page
I've seen a lot of amazing videos there.
