I am currently visting New York for the sole purpose of taking landscape photos. I recently purchased the 1DXmkii and the WFT-8A wireless trigger. I assumed that the setup would be a breeze and that the interval settings would be self explanatory. They are not by any means, I have been sitting in my AirBnB for an hour now trying to get this figured out. I have my camera connected to my iphone and am able to shoot wirelessly, but I have no clue how to setup interval photos from the phone or camera. Can someone please help me before I throw this thing off a bridge!
Thanks in advance,

I don't mean this as a knock at the OP (he's suffering enough), but as a warning to other overequipped newbies. For God's sake, do your homework before heading to a remote photo shoot! If you doh't understand your equipment, you make yourself look like a fool. I would have thought that this would be obvious to everybody, but maybe it isn't.

The WFT-8A is not a wireless trigger. It is a Wireless File Transfer accessory.
Unless the camera has a built-in intervalometer, which I'm not sure if it does [surprisingly], then you will need an external one, like the Canon Timer Remote Controller, TC-80N3.

You are going to New York, right? Just go to any camera store like Adorama, B&H, it's like a billion of camera stores in NY 🙂 and buy any cheap 3-pin off-brand remote release trigger with a timer. This is what I use: [link removed per forum guidelines]
The Canon official remote is limited to 99 exposures. HTH!
