I'm afraid you backed the wrong pony, Canon doesn't like Intervalometers for some reason. Buy the D600 or D800 instead for real photography features...

Or buy the $15 Neewer intervalometer on Amazon which does everything the $150 Canon one does for a tenth of the price.

There is no time-lapse feature built into the 5D II, or any other EOS camera.
It is done by:

(1) Tether the camera via the included USB cord to a computer, and use the Timer Controlled shooting functions of the EOS Utility software included with the 5D II.

(2) Purchase the Canon TC-80N3 remote timer control, or similar from other vendors. Refer to the instructions included with the control.

There's a time-lapse feature in my old Eos 10 - a film SLR - I also have and use the TC-80N3 on my later bodies.

I use the Pixel TW-282:

Cheaper than Canon equivalent, full featured, well built and reliable. I believe there's also a cheaper wired version.

Have a look at the Triggertrap: https://triggertrap.com/ and look for the mobile device. It uses an Android or iOS smartphone or tablet.

Sure gets my vote - as the worst designed web page on the planet!

Is there any reason for the item you are interested in being crammed into the bottom of the page while a selection of 3 unrelated items fight for control of the rest of the displayed page every second?

Someone ought to tell them that its losing them business, but I couldn't stand the irritation of being on that page long enough to lodge a complaint.

The Time-lapse on the D800 & D600 is similar to the Interval-meter the difference is it outputs a finished video to the memory card.

Intervalometer?

Do you mean your looking for a an intervalometer? Here is what I use on my 60D. Im not certain it works with the 5D models, but I don't see why it wouldn't. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003Q9RERY/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00

Its cheap as heck, with solid build quality, easy to read screen and all the features a good intervalometer should have. I first bought a more expensive model thinking it would be better but the build quality and buttons where lousy. Hard to read display. This intervalometer is one of the best values on the market.

The troll did have a point though. It is about time Canon started programing intervalometer functions into the cameras.
