Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the self-timer, part of Learning the Canon Rebel SL1 (100D and Kiss X7).
- Most people think of the self timer in their camera…as a way to get involved in the picture.…Now this works quite well because you can set the camera…on a flat surface, a tripod, a gorilla pod,…compose your shot, and then press the button and run around…and get into the photo yourself.…You can use the menus to really adjust the times,…so you don't have to run so fast.…Press the Quick Edit button, you'll notice near the bottom,…depending on your mode, that you can see the Drive mode…and the timer.…Use the cross keys or tap the screen,…now you could choose from different modes.…
For example, you'll notice this first timer mode here,…is a self timer or a 10 second remote.…Now when I press this,…(beeping)…The camera's going to take ten seconds, this gives me a lot…of time to run around, and then go get in the shot myself.…(accelerated beeping) The beep will speed…(camera clicks) up to cue me that it's about…to take the picture and it fires.…That works pretty well, but there are…some other methods that could come in handy.…
