Expanding Canon's Self-Timer:Continuous (limit- 10 frames)
« on: November 05, 2018, 06:28:06 AM »
New to the forums but was wondering if anyone has any info on this subject.





Basically, I shoot a lot of self-timed portraits while riding my mountain bike and use the Self-Timer:Continuous setting all the time. It essentially delays the shutter for 10 seconds then takes anywhere from 2 to 10 frames in burst mode. Sometimes, 10 frames just isn't enough and was wondering if anyone has ever heard of a way to expand those frames to 15 or even 20 through a Magic Lantern software hack?

Thank you for any replies!

PS, I'm shooting on a Canon 6D Mark II.

ML intervalometer has a setting for burst up to 5000 pics.
Unfortunately there is no ML for your cam. Don't ask for a release date because ML doesn't have schedules, milestones, release dates.

Maybe you should try a programmable remote.
Google for it: 'programmable remote for Canon DSLR'
There are many options out there, be sure, when you buy one, it has the functions you need, like intervalometer or endless burst/photo taking option.
And check out which batteries it needs, some of them use very weird not very average type of batteries.
