Accessing the Timer mode is quite simple. And this you can do in just about every mode that the camera is set to. So for example, right now you can see I’m set to the Manual mode. Even if you’re in the Automatic mode, you still have access to the Timer function.
Go ahead and press the Drive mode down here at the bottom, this will give you access to the Timer and the Drive options. So, press down and then you can choose continuous or the Timer options. There’s 10 second timer and two second timer. And you also have a custom timer. Now, this could come in handy. Usually, I use the two second timer for when I have the cameras set on a tripod and I want to let go of the camera once I’ve released the Shutter button so it can stop shaking in order to be very, very still for a long exposure.
The other option is the 10 second timer. If you want to get yourself in the image, you have enough time to run around, get yourself in a group of people, and the camera after 10 seconds will take the picture.
Lastly, I’ll press it down and get to Custom and the Custom is set in the menu. So, either as you can see if I press down to get to the Drive mode, I can press the menu right now to access the custom timer or I can have that set up prior to accessing the custom timer mode. I’ll show you this. I’ll just press the menu to cancel. If I just go into the menu and choose self timer down here, this will allow me to set up that custom timer. So, just go ahead and press Set. And you can see it’s the same screen. You can access the screen again either by pressing the Menu button and scrolling to the self timer or just by pressing the Drive Mode button and then hitting menu to access the screen.
Now, what this does is allow me to choose the custom timer delay time. By default, it’s set to 10 seconds. I can change that. If I don’t want it to be 10 seconds, I can change it. It also allows me to set how many pictures will be taken once that timer has been reached. So first, I set the length of time the camera waits to take a picture and then I set how many pictures will be taken once it’s reached that length of time.
So, this can be very handy because you don’t want to have it just take one picture and then have to run back to the camera and see how it turned out, if anybody blinked or closed their eyes. So, you can take three pictures, five pictures just about anything you want. Usually, three is pretty good or two and you can pretty much be sure that at least one of those pictures will come out okay.
So, choose you’re setting. I’ll choose three shots and I’ll make it seven seconds. I’ll go ahead and press Set to okay that. And because I access this via the main menu, I’m going to press the Menu button to escape the main menu. And now, if I press the Drive, you can already see it up here. It says custom timer but if it weren’t the case, I would press the Drive button down here, go down to custom timer, it’s set or give it a second to go away. Now, I know when I press my Shutter button, again press it halfway to focus, and then press it the rest of the way to take a picture. I press the Shutter button, I have seven seconds to run and get in the group of people. And then once the camera gets to seven seconds, it’ll take three pictures.
