Interval Shooting?

Want to use a K5 for a photo booth set-up, thought that Interval mode might work, however once it's done with the set, it goes back to normal mode (page 152 of the manual). Thought of using bracketing mode with 3 shots, but the exposure would be off on two frames. Does anyone know of a way to get 3 correct frames once the shutter button is pressed?

I just tried to set 0 EV between brackets but the minimum is 0.5 EV.

The only other trick I can think of is a wired intervalometer instead of the camera shutter button. Leave the camera in Av or another semi-auto mode for exposure, set the intervalometer for 3 photos with a time delay of a few seconds between shots.

Thanks, John... was trying not to buy an intervalometer, but it looks like it's the only way.

Triggertrap would work in this application. It's a free app with an $25 adapter cord.

There's an app for Android, "DSLR Remote" that has an intervalometer function. The basic version is free and it uses the IR sensor in the camera and the IR transceiver in the phone. I use it all the time as a basic IR Remote but it does more than that.
