Hi!! Yes I need help!I work in the fashion industry at a start up and I model the clothes we make. I need to take pics of myself and I need my boss’s camera (the Nikon d300s) to take multiple pics of me on a 2 second timer. I need to know if his camera can take multiple pics while also doing it on a timer. Please advise if this is possible. Thanks :)

Well can you please tell me how to set it up to do that. I’m paying money to hear the answer to my question. Can you please provide steps to setting this up?
Camera and Video Technician: Harry, Camera and Video Technician replied 6 months ago

Unfortunately, your question only asked if it was possible and did not ask how to set it up.

. Press the Menu button on the back of the camera and go to CSM (Custom Setting Menu).

2. Use the multi-selector button and go to c Timers/AE lockmenu.

3. Go to the option c3 and select Self-timer and you will see two options inside.

4. First option, Self-timer delay allows you to set time after how many seconds camera should take a shot and available values are 2s, 5s, 10s, 20s.

4. And the next option is Number of shots you want to take in self-timer mode. You can choose between 1 and 9 shots.

5. Optionally, you can also select CL (Continuous Low) mode shooting speed (1fps, 2fps, 3fps and 4fps) into CSM->Shooting/display->d6 (CL mode shooting speed).

6. Finally you have to change the shooting mode into self-timer mode (with burst shooting). You can do that my pressing the button on the top (right to LCD screen which has wireless remote and self-timer icon) while rotating mode dial until you see the burst mode with the clock (self-timer) icon.
