And, self portraits!

When you use the camera's self-timer, it autofocuses when you press the shutter button, NOT after you get in front of the camera. So, you end up with a fuzzy face in front of a sharp background.

Instead, plug in the TC, set it for a repeat interval of 10-20 seconds, and walk out front. It does a half-press autofocus a few seconds before each shot. Try as many facial expressions and positions as you want, then pick the best one. Most will be in focus.
