D5100 self-timer and multiple shots
Apr 16, 2012

With the D5100 when you combine the self timer with auto bracketing or just a set of continuous shots it counts down the timer internval, takes the shot, and then counts down the interval before the next shot. Example with a 2s timer for 3 shots:

Shutter press, 2s interval, shot, 2s interval, shot, 2s interval, shot

I'm used to cameras counting down the internval once and then taking the programmed number of shots as a burst like so:

Shutter press, 2s interval, shot, shot, shot

Is there a way to configure the D5100 so that it doesn't reset the timer interval between images?

This is useful for group shots and HDR and doing it in camera works for both (just a longer timer for group shots). I'm hoping to figure it out so I can avoid needing a remote and a cable release to deal with each of those situations seperately.
