Technically what you're looking for is info on 'time lapse' photography, which I point out not to be a know-it-all jerk, but to help with your future search results.

Essentially, you need something to serve as an intervalometer for your camera. Either a tool like the Nikon MC-36 Remote or software for your computer. Since you have the laptop, you might be able to find a cheaper software solution via the google.

Vincent LaForet, fairly well known for his tilt-shift and other time laps videos, uses the Canon version of the Nikon remote I linked above. B&H has it for $149.95 right now. The Nikon remote is around the same price.

thanks for the info and the "time lapse" correction. i'll check out that link now. last night the river came right up to our road (extremely high tide), but i'd like to catch it on an average day from empty to full...
thanks man!

Sorry I don't have any more info on software. Looking forward to seeing the result if you manage to work it out!
