Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the self-timer, part of Up and Running with the Nikon D600 and D610.
- Most people think of the self timer mode,…as a way to get into the picture themselves.…Now you can set the camera on a tripod or a flat surface,…compose the shot and then push the button,…run around to the other side…and join your family or friends in the photo.…Using the menu, you can actually change…how long this timer duration is…so you don't have to run so fast.…Press the MENU button then choose the CUSTOM SETTING MENU.…Choose category C, Timers/Auto Exposure lock…and press to the right.…
Select Self-timer and press to the right.…You'll now see the Self-timer delay.…You can assign a delay of two, five,…10 or 20 seconds.…You can only have one timer assigned…to the self timer button.…You'll also notice that you could set the number of shots.…For example, if you want to get a few shots for safety,…you could set up to nine.…This allows you to capture multiple group photos…with you in them.…You can also assign an interval between the shots.…For example, up to a three second delay…in between each photo.…
I usually use a two second delay…
