Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The self-timer, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
You've seen the D7000's self-timer which is great for taking self-portraits or…group shots that include yourself.…What's really cool about the self-timer is you can customize it to an amazing degree.…If I go into my Custom Settings menu, into the Timers category, I have down…here at c3, Self-timer.…This gives me three different options.…First of all, by default, my camera is set to a 10 second timer delay.…That is, I press the Shutter button with the timer on, there will be 10 seconds…before it finally takes the shot.…If I want, I can change that.…
I can bump it up to 20 seconds.…If I really need a lot of time to run to wherever it is I need to be to get into…frame or I can slow it down to 5 seconds or 2 seconds.…A 2 second delay is not so much for you to get in front of the camera.…It's for you to get your hands off the camera and give the camera time to settle…down, so that there's no camera shake.…So this is something you'll typically use when you are trying to do a longer exposure.…Again, by default, it's on 10 second delay.…
