You need a remote shutter release button attached either via a cable, or wirelessly. Canon make several models, as do many third parties.

As for self timer, press the AF-Drive Button then use the select wheel to move from single shot to high speed, slow speed or self-timer modes.

How do I use a wireless shutter release for a ninon p510

You don't. The Coolpix cameras do not have the electrical receptacle necessary to connect a wired or wireless shutter release. If wireless release is important, you need to upgrade to an SLR. You are looking at $500 and more unless you buy used equipment.

Trying to get a remote system working on my D60?

You need to set the release mode to one of the remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the shutter release button on the remote. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before the shutter fires.

For full details see the "Self-Timer and Remote Control Modes" section of the manual (begins on page 55 in my copy).

How do I use the timer and remote to take pictures

Press cursor-down (marked with a one-handed clock) and then select the desired self-timer delay. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual. Full details are in the "Self-timer shooting" section of the manual (page 28 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

If you're asking about the RM-UC1 remote release, simply plug it into the camera's USB port and then use the button on it instead of the shutter release button on the camera.

How do I set it up on my Nikon D60 to use this remote?

I assume you're referring to the ML-L3 infrared remote?

Select Release Mode from the Quick settings display. Select Quick-response remote. This will make the camera take a picture when you press the button on the remote. Well, almost. The same focusing and exposure metering delays occur as if you'd pressed the shutter release button.

You can also use the Delayed remote mode for group pictures. This gives you two seconds to hide your hand behind your back before the camera takes the picture.

By default the D60 will time out after one minute if you don't press the button on the remote. Custom Setting #17 allows you to set a longer interval.

I haven't needed the timed photo mode and so am not sure if the Canon Powershot A80 has the ability? I feel like a bit of an idiot asking this... but if it does, how do I get there and how do I set it up?...

Press the FUNC/SET button. Use up/down to select Drive Mode (the rectangle, third item from the top). Use left/right to select the desired delay and press FUNC/SET. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual.

How do i put shutter cable on, or how do i remove the button

You can't. Not without destroying the camera. There's a clever little gadget from UK letting you use a generic cable release to "any" camera:

Or, you can use the self-timer to prevent camera shake. You have to set the self-timer for every single shot, tho...

How do I use my time-lapse function, Does my camera have one?

There is no tme lapse function on the 400d however a search on ebay can come up with some 3rd party electronic shutter releases which have time lapse function fitted.Most are from Hong Kong but dont be put off I have bought lots of theses 3rd party accessories (battery grips, off camera flash cords,remote shutter releases etc) and all work faultlessly. Here is one of many.I do not own this one personally but I have several items by the "Yongnuo" company and they are great.

How do i set the timer on my canon powershot a560 to take a pic

There's a button with a clock next to it. Press that button and put your camera where you want it. Press the shutter release half way, to get focused. When you press it the whole way down, the timer will start and you will have 8-10 seconds. There is normally a burst of a few flashes when it takes the picture.

Press the Drive-Mode/Self-Timer button (on the back, near the upper-right corner of the LCD panel, marked with a one-handed clock). Select the one-handed clock, then use left/right to select a timer option. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter button.
