Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the self-timer, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- Most people think of the self timer mode…as a way to get in the picture themselves,…and this works well.…You could set the camera on a tripod…or a steady flat surface, compose the shot,…and then push a button.…Run around and actually get into the photo yourself.…This timer can be set to a variety of different delays.…By default, it's a ten second delay,…which will give you audio feedback as it counts down.…But you can use the menus to change this…between two, five, ten and twenty seconds.…To make the change, press the MENU button,…and go to the CUSTOM SETTING MENU.…
Choose Timers/AE lock, and press to the right.…You can now go to the Self-timer option,…and press to the right.…Here, you can enter the delay, choosing 2s,…5s, 10s, or 20s, press OK to make the change.…You can also set the Number of shots in the sequence.…For example, I could choose 3, but go all the way up to 9.…To engage the Self-timer is pretty simple.…Press the continuous shooting button,…and use the multi selector to choose the Self -timer.…
