How do I turn off the timer on my 20D?
Sep 2, 2007

Some how I accidently turned the timer on and can't figure out how to turn it off.

Also is there a special camera release cord for a digital camera? I have one from my old Nikon.

thanks

Robert,

Press the drive/iso button on the top of the camera and turn the wheel to go from single shot, multi shot, or timer mode. (I remember doing this a few days after I got my 10D.)

Yes the 20D requires a special release cable. Check B&H etc. for the part number.

Mark.

Push drive button on top, then turn dial on top until LCD show the mode you want. (get rid of the clock icon).

If you mean the self timer, you need to push the DRIVE/ISO button and use the top wheel to change the drive mode until the icon (on the right side of the status screen) just shows a rectangle ("single shot").

Well, for this digital camera you need the Canon RS-80N3 remote release switch (or a third-party equivalent).
