I have bought an infrared wireless remote (cheap simple one from eBay with a single button) for my Canon 6D. The camera has two modes for the self-timer and remote:
In case of using a remote, both options do the same thing: they take the photo immediately as triggered by the remote. I suppose the same goes with the wired remotes.
This is not what I want for group photographs that include me because in such case the photo shows my hand with the remote pointing the camera which looks awkward. It would be great if there was a delay of two seconds.
Is it possible to trigger the self-timer with the remote? I don't want to put 10s or 2s and then run to the group. How do you guys do it?
