Looking for a solution to the following problem: Have a photo contest where I need to be the shooter so using an assistant to press the shutter is not an option (unless I cheat ;^). I have an action shot in mind where I want a 10-second delay, then the camera shoots 6 or more shots at its max burst rate (6fps). I am the subject of the shot and I will be moving quickly.
The 5dmk3 multi-exposure mode seems to require the shutter button to be continously held down to take multiple shots so that doesn't seem to be an option.
Borrowed an Aputure timer that allows delayed start plus defined number of shots but that only shoots 2 shots per second.
Reviewed Canon user manual but didn't find a solution. Also looked at Canon's advanced timer but a search of Canon USA web site didn't even list that product so I couldn't find a user manual.
So, I think I am looking for a device that, after a user-defined delay, will fire the camera at its maximum bust rate for a user-defined number of shots. Anybody have any ideas?
