How To Set The Self Timer Feature On Nikon D60 DSLR Camera

In this blog post I am going to show you how to set up the self timer feature on Nikon DSLR d60 camera.

Put on the camera and select menu button.  These first set of menu listings are the Playback Menu. On the right you will see a icon that looks like a pencil (its the second option) - this is the Custom Setting Menu, select that.  Scroll down to option number four - Release Mode and select.  Scroll down and select Self Timer option. 

Back at the Custom Settings Menu options, scroll down to option number 11 - Fn Button and select Self Timer option.

Now back at the main menu of Custom Setting Menu, scroll down to option number 16 which is Self-timer.  Here you can set how long you want the timer to go for before taking a photo.  There are four options, 2 seconds, 5 seconds, 10 seconds and 20 seconds. Make your selection.

Position your camera on a tripod, press the shutter button, position yourself in front the camera.  The beeper will beep for a few seconds (the length of time all depends on the option you selected) and take a photo.

photo of the day


I had fun afternoon with my grandson at the Pier Park, Road Town Tortola, British Virgin Islands.  I was about to take this photo of the cruise ship and as I pressed on the shutter button, my grandson put his hand in front of the camera and this is the result!  I had a good laugh and am pleased with the results!  What do you think?

I allowed my grandson to use my camera for the first time and I think he really enjoyed it.  He even took a photo of me!
I was a bit skeptical at first because I was scared that he might drop the camera.  I eventually told him to put the camera strap around his neck and then I relaxed.

Iguana In My Backyard - Tortola British Virgin Islands


Iguana in my backyard.  I see them quite frequently.  They love hiding out and hanging out on the banana trees. In the United States Virgin Islands, they are endangered species so  you will see the very old iguanas just chilling on trees and if you are lucky you just might see one at the mall!  Honestly a few years ago, we saw one outside the mall in St. Thomas.

Photo was taken with my Canon EOS M100 camera with the 15-45mm lens attached.  I cropped the photo with paint.net and the resolutions still looks amazing!!!
