How to Use Interval Timer Shooting On Nikon D5300?Interval Timer Shooting On Nikon D5300

What is internal timer shooting?

As it changes over time, Nikon interval timer shooting helps you to capture a subject or an object image. This process is generally referred to as time lapse photography. You don’t have to think about it now, as you can set up your Nikon D3500 easily or trigger the shutter automatically at repeated intervals ranging from seconds to hours. The entire time, you don’t need to stand around and push the shutter button. You should take advantage of the feature and then make easy use of it.

The Use of Interval Timer Shooting is Easy

Step 1. Settings 

Be sure to set the release mode to Single Frame or Silent Shutter first. Click the front left side of the camera, which is the release mode, one of the easiest ways to get access to the settings.

Step 3. Highlighting and starting the time 

When you begin to set up your capture session, you need to highlight now

If you want to set a later start time, then highlight the start time of your choosing.


Step 4 The fourth step to do is to press the multi selector right to simply the capture set-up screen

You can see values at the bottom of the screen that have emerged, which will read,

Starting time,

Timer for Interval (that is to between shots),

Amount of times (which include, the total number of frames that is recorded).

When you choose now, the start time option is dimmed and the interval option is illuminated, which is stage 3.


Step 5 The fifth step is to set up a recording session 

You can see a little value box appear at the top of your screen. The highlighted box refers to the environment highlighted at the bottom of the screen or illustrates it. It is a choice that is active.

Now press the left or right multi selector to loop through the value box, then press the up or down multi selector to adjust the value in the specific box.

There are just a few things that you need to recall.

  • A 24 hour clock is the basis for the start time and interval options. This data is based on the time and date
  • you entered when the camera was set up. In the lower corner it is open.
  • Open the left column box in order to set the interval option. Make sure that the value is the shutter speed you want to use for a longer time than normal.
  • Only the hour and minute values for the start time option can be set.

Step 6 Multi-selector

Step 7 Press okay when you highlight

The selection you made in phase 3 as a start time choice is now that the first shot is reported about 3 seconds later. If you have set a delayed start time, the camera shows a message that says Timer Active for a couple of seconds.

Things to keep in mind 

  1. A light, which is card access light, blinks when the interval time shooting is in progress.
  2. For live view photography or effects exposure, the interval timer shooting is not available.
  3. You won’t be able to adjust the camera settings when the interval sequence is in progress.

An fascinating idea and fairly easy to use is interval timer firing. However, technology can only get a photographer so far, like almost anything else in photography. The only difference will be the innovation and creative thinking at the end of the day. Be sure to recognize an object with a chronological transformation when selecting your item for interval time shooting.
