Question: Anyone know how to set the timer on my Canon Rebel T7i? I looked through the menus and I can’t find that setting anywhere. Thanks.
Answer: To set the self timer, push the left arrow button on the back of your camera. Make sure you’re not in Live View mode, because if you are, pushing that arrow button will simply nudge the white box on the LCD screen around. In regular shooting mode, push the left arrow button, which will bring you to the Drive Mode menu area. In that menu area, you’ll see three different options all the way to the right. The first option is for a ten second timer, the second option is for a two second timer and the last option all the way to the right is for a ten second timer again, but for continuous shooting as well. You can use the up and down arrows to set the number of photos you’d like the camera to take continuously. Use the up/down arrow buttons to change the number of photos you’d like taken. Use either the left/right arrow buttons on the back of the camera or the dial at the top of the camera to make your timer selection. Once you do, press the SET button to confirm the setting change. Then, begin shooting.
These instructions are good for the Canon Rebel T2i, T3i, T4i, T5i, T6i and T7i.
