Customer Question
I cannot release the...

I cannot release the function which allows the camera to take a picture after I have "jumped" into the photo - it's an automatic setting on the body of the camera and I am embarrassed that I cannot figure this out. I have used a Canon Rebel for 20 years!!! Thanks you. Nancy Kurz

Technician's Assistant: What Canon model do you have?

Rebel EOS SL1

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your EOS?

I have tried the various buttons on the camera - on the side of the lens, etc.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I think it is something very simple but I cannot figure it out

To use your self timer press Menu>scroll down to Drive/self Tmr> select it, then set the delay. I recommend 10 seconds. Then press the Up or down keys to select the number of shots you want it to take. Once you've done this, compose your image and press the shutter all the way down to start the 10 second timer. Then run into place and try to look natural!!!

I also recommend switching your focus switch on your lens to M "Manual" from AF and composing the shot manually rather than with autofocus. That will help to ensure that the focal distance is just right for your image.

Hope this helps. Let me know if there's anything else that I can do to assist you. A 5 star rating is much appreciated when I've been helpful. Thanks and have a wonderful day!!!

Camera and Video Technician: Roger, Camera and Video Technician replied 7 months ago
The same menu where it is turned on. Menu>scroll down to drive/self tmr> select single shot or continuous. Any drive setting other than self time. Menu to exit.
