Where is the timer button on the Nikon D5000?


Answers :

It's not one button.\012\012\012

If shooting information is not displayed in the monitor, press the [info] button. Press the [i] button to place the cursor in the information display. Use left/right on the multiselector to highlight the current release mode in the information display (the fifth item from the top along the right edge) and press OK. Select the self-timer (the one-handed clock symbol) and press OK. Custom Settings #C3 controls the length of the the timer delay.

Don't forget to change it back when you're done.

If you use the self-timer a lot, you can program the Fn button on the front of the camera to set the self-timer.

Hi, I am trying to use the self timer function on my Nikon D90 but it doesn't seem to work.

I have the Nikon coolpix 710, which was brought in Hong Kong When I click the play button, to view the pictures on the camera, it shows the last picture and the camera freezes up (not able to view any of the pics only for the last one taken). All buttons seem to be locked, with except for the power button. And even sometime the power button is stubborn and only works when it wants. Would this be a defective item, or...??? so confussed...

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??
