First thing first, you have to ensure that the release mode is set to self timer...

SOURCE: Would like to know how to use the self timer on my Nikon D60?

Highlight Release mode in the Quick settings display and select the self-timer mode (an icon that looks sort of like a one-handed clock). Frame the photo. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus, then all the way to start the timer.

It's all in the manual under "Self-Timer and Remote Control Modes," page 55 in my copy of the manual.

SOURCE: self timer on nikon d300

on the top of the camera, there is a dial which says QUAL, WB and ISO. Look for button and ring just below this. It should say S, CL, CH, Lv, a clock and Mup. Press the button to release the ring and rotate it to the clock icon to activate self timer

When you have the flashing highlight areas, press the down arrow on the command dial and it will scroll through various playback screen options until you get to the screen you prefer to view.

My Nikon Coolpix S8000 self timer is not working


There can be many reasons why you don't see a thing. Be sure you put the camera in record mode (not display mode) make sure the display setting is bright enough to see what is on the screen.
Make sure your camera is not connected to a PC, with a USB cable.
And don't try to use the camera while charging, because the display won't show anything at all.
I hope something over here you recognise?
If not, try the manual, Page 155 trouble shooting.

Hi, I have a Hahnel remote control for my Nikon camera... this worked well with my D60, but I cannot make it work with my D300. Both parts are working, but not each other! have the setting to self timer......


Check to see if the D300 remote setting is turned on in the camers settings if so it is possible the two cameras work on different frequencies so a different remote will have to be used.

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 can't find the selftimer button and explain how it works


Press the Info button to get the shooting info on the display screen. Navigate to and select the Shooting Mode. Select the Self-timer (the icon looks somewhat like a clock with a single hand). Now, when you press the shutter button, the shutter will release after the delay. The length of the delay can be set via a menu option. The usual things about autofocus and exposure metering apply.

Nikon D60 is suddenly taking very dark pictures


I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.

How do i connect my wireless remote to my d60????


In the Shooting Mode menu, change <from either Single or Continuous or 10Second self-timer> to 2S (two seconds) Remote or immediate Remote -- there's an icon that looks like your remote. Then get in front of the camera (lens cap removed already) and point the remote to the IR receiver on the front of the camera and click the remote button ... it will take the shot immediately or after two seconds (depending on what you specified).

The shooting mode doesn't seem to stick -- if I turn the camera off and then on, it's gone back to how it was previous set and I have to set it to remote again.

My bigger problem was I thought (guessed, since there were no instructions!) that I had to press the self-timer function button before clicking the remote -- but doing that kept resetting my shooting mode back to 10 seconds on SELF TIMER (taking it off of REMOTE mode).

Using the ML-L3 with the D60


Got it! It's on page 54 of the manual (mine anyway).

Choose release mode from the Quick settings display.

You have a choice between:
single frame (default)
continuous (burst mode)
self-timer
delayed remote (using the ML-L3)
quick response remote (using the ML-L3)

I just took 4 self-portraits using quick response. And deleted them straightaway!
