EOS 80D Self timer - Continuous Shooting

StanBinder
Apprentice

I am attempting to use the self-timer with continuous shooting on a EOS 80D.  When I select the self-timer it appears to default to single shot instead of retaining the Continuous slow setting I had previously set. My T2i enables me to use both options concurrently.  Want to take a group photo (with me in it) with the continuous option so I don't have to run back and forth between the camera and the group.

I don’t believe it has that option.

I would buy a wireless remote (not the IR type). You can get one that has intervalometer features for around $30, and one with just basic features much cheaper. I seldom use them, but keep one in my bag. If you don't want to spring for a remote trigger, check to see if the 80D has a built in intervalometer and set it up to get a few shots while your group poses. I'm pretty sure it has one, you just need to figure out the timing.

IIRC, the feature you are referring to in the T2i is actually part of the self timer, which allows you to take up to 10 shots.

I think there is a little more to it than switching to Continuous Drive mode and turning on the shutter delay timer.  If that were all it took, then how many shots should the camera capture?

I think you need to make use of the internal intervalometer, assuming the 80D has one.  For example, if you set up a bracketed exposure, then using the shutter delay timer should cause the camera to capture the entire bracket of shots automatically.

You should be about to use the internal Intervalometer in the same way.  Set it up for a number of shots at fixed intervals, and away you go..  For it to work, the camera must be in Continuous Drive mode, not Single Shot Drive mode.

If you are shooting indoors, another option is a infrared controller.  It will work outside too if you aren't too far away.
