I'll start with an apology if everyone knows this but me.
I bought a Nikon D800 about a month ago (adore), but the wireless remote I used for the D7000 is not compatible. No worries, I'll just shoot a self-portrait using the timer.
However, the camera focuses on the background (absent me) so when I'm in the frame, I'm out of focus.
My question: is there a way to tell the camera to do its auto-focus magic at the conclusion of the timer and right before the frame is snapped? Or will it only focus when I depress the trigger to start the timer?
Thanks in advance.
