thanks weixing, that works!  I would have never thought the Long Exposure mode was the secret to achieving my goal.  Actually, I had a deadline so I bought a wireless shutter release to take the following goofy shot:

Thanks Skirball, I'll check that out.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5dmk3 shoot burst w/10 second delay?
« on: April 25, 2013, 04:23:36 PM »
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?

My guess is that it is dirt on the sensor.  You could lock up the mirror and look at the sensor.

Also, is it in EVERY shot?  With different lenses?  This would also indicate dirt on the sensor.

I think you're going to like the 6D with all its features.  Were you going to get the kit lens with it?  It is a great walkabout lens.

I could see a hotshoe bubble level coming in handy whichever head you buy.

My guess is that you are behind a firewall that restricts access to certain sites.  Businesses like to restrict access to bandwidth-hungry sites such as photo and video sites.  Are you on a computer at work?

I like the scarecrow shot a lot!

A lot of us Canon owners have been wondering the same thing.  ;)
