SOURCE: Nikon N80 takes one shot, then needs abt 10 sec cooldown

If your batteries are fresh ( have seen flat new ones older stock) and are using alkalines then I would think you have a connector problem. Can you check and clean the connectiosn inside the grip and on the camera body. I've also seen dirty lens contacts and even a sticky shutter cause this. It's usually not serious just rather annoyng until you find it.

L330. Which remote shutter release works with it or is there a plug-in model?

This camera does not support external shutter release. To get around this use a TRIPOD and self timer (If you can wait 10 secs before taking shot)

Sony DSC-TX30 - self timer - 10 sec -- takes blurry or overexposed photos - how do I correct that?

I always set my shot up, including focusing the shot, before I start the timer. That may fix your problem.

So I have an EOS Rebel Xsi, and it has been working perfectly for the last couple of months. I turned it on and tried to take a picture in MF, but then a yellow light on the front starts flashing and...

Sounds like the self timer was accidently set.

Description

Using the Self-timer on the EOS REBEL T3i.

Solution

The self-timer is useful when you want to photograph yourself or prevent camera shake caused when the shutter is released.
1. Set the power switch to <ON>.
2. Press < > button.
3. Press <Cross Keys> to select the desired self-timer, then press the <SET> button.
: 10-sec. self-timer (The remote control can also be used.)
: 2-sec. self-timer
: 10-sec. self-timer plus continuous shots. After selecting , press <Cross Keys> to set the number of multiple shots (2 to 10) to be taken with the self-timer.)
4. Look through the viewfinder, focus the subject, then press the shutter button completely.
  • You can check the self-timer operation with the self-timer lamp, beeper, and countdown display (in seconds) on the LCD monitor.
  • Two seconds before the picture is taken, the self-timer lamp will stay on and the beeper will sound faster.
Attention:
With [ ], the interval between the multiple shots may be prolonged depending on the shooting functions settings such as the image-recording quality or flash.
NOTE:
  • After taking self-timer shots, you should check the image for proper focus and exposure.
  • If you will not look through the viewfinder when you press the shutter button, attach the eyepiece cover. If stray light enters the viewfinder when the picture is taken, it may throw off the exposure.
  • When using the self-timer to photograph only yourself, use focus lock on an object at about the same distance as where you will stand.
  • To cancel the self-timer after it starts, press the < > button.

How do u use the rc6 for instint photos not two second. What do you set on the camera. 5D mark ll

don't set for 2 sec, set the camera to 10 sec self timer and click the remote, should work instantly with every click. just remember to set for regular shooting if not using the remote. can be very annoying to wait 10 sec for a shot, unless you want to be in one?

Hi, I am trying to use the self timer function on my Nikon D90 but it doesn't seem to work. I have checked on many sites how to use it, but whenever I press the self timer button and turn the roll left...

The button for this is on the right, the second one from the rear and it has multiple squares on it for a symbol. Pressing and holding this button down then turning the rear dial should change the shutter release function. It cycles through single shot, multiple shots low and high speed, and then self timer. You set the actual parameters of the self-timer from the custom setting menu.

Timer on samsung digital camera?

Sure ... be sure to use a tripod or other device to place the camera for stability.
  • Set the MODE DIAL to your desired photo setting
  • Press the SELF-TIMER button on the button pad (looks like a clock/timer on the right button pad)
  • There are three settings
    • 10 SEC - 10 seconds will pass until the picture is taken
    • 2 SEC - 2 seconds until the picture is taken
    • Double self-timer - a picture will be taken after 10 seconds, and then after 2 seconds a second picture will be taken.
  • Press the SHUTTER button to begin the timer.
  • Jump in the shot! =)
