The remote I use for my Canon 550D unfortunately doesn't have a switch permitting me to either release the shutter instantaneously or after a delay pf 2 seconds. First of all it doesn't make sense to me that this setting would be on the remote rather than on the camera, where one could set an arbitrary delay.
Question: Is there a way too achieve arbitrary delay, possibly using tools like Magic Lantern?
There are similar questions that indicate otherwise, but none of them address the possibility of using custom firmware.
Bonus Question: Why is it that the delay is set by a different infra-red signal rather than a setting on the camera?
