    Hello,

    Can anyone tell me about the "time interval" between shots when using time delay and selecting multiple shots. For example if I choose a ten second delay (which would allow time for me to get in front of the camera) and select 4 shots to be taken what would be the time interval between the shots.

    Hope this makes sense......... Thanks for your help....

    I am not sure if the d5100 can do that. Definitely not on the the d3100 which I own. But I know it can be done on a T2i at 4 fps and probably a T3i. It may be a Nikon limitation. Any d5100 owners out there who can verify this?

    I think you would need an involometer, spelling got jacked up on that, to make it work on the d5000. Of course not sure what kind of settings those would have. I would suggest the infrared wireless shutter release and then you can just click from in front of the camera when you are ready.

    Thanks for your replies .......

    I don't think I did a very good job describing the "time interval." I found this link which says the time interval (after selecting the self timer delay) for "multiple shots" is three seconds. Note: You can take up to 9 shots using this method.

    This can be found in the Custom Setting Menu C Options. I will experiment. I would appreciate any other thoughts. Thanks again.
