How to make an automatic self portrait with Canon 7D
Jul 29, 2014

When I am travelling on my own I sometimes like to take a picture of myself. I would like to use a low aperture number. I want to avoid to estimate the distance camera-me because in general it does not give a sharp picture.

In Live mode the camera has an AF mode 'Live Mode' which has face recognition. Standard mode does not recognize faces. Problem: autofocus is done already while pressing the shutter button.

Using my remote controller TC-80N3 does not give a working proces as well.

What possibilities do I have to make a selfportrait (camera on tripod) with perfect sharpness, without help from another person?
