When setting my Canon camera on a timer, how do I force it to focus at the time the shot is taken instead of when the timer is set?
I'm pretty sure with the 77D (as well as most other Canon DSLRs) you can't.
Most instruction manuals and 'how-to' books recommend using a dummy target the same distance as you plan to stand from the camera. You can either use ...
According to the Nikon Coolpix D900 user manual, there are only 2 ways to capture a timelapse with the Coolpix P900 : using the Timelapse Movie capture or the Interval Timer.
The P900 can shoot small video clips of 10s in 1080p by taking up to 300 pictures at different intervals (between 2s and 36s). See user manual page 97 for operation ...
Go to Custom Function Three (C.Fn3: Drive) in the custom functions menu tab and insure that under "Restrict Drive Modes" that there is a check mark next to the self timer setting you wish to use. If there is no check mark then that drive mode is disabled and not selectable using the AF-Drive button. It is on page 326 of the 1D X Instruction Manual.
You can use a wired remote release that has a built in intervalometer, such as this fairly inexpensive one or this one. Regardless of the brand name stamped on them, they all seem to be made identically.
You then set the camera to Bulb and let the timer in the remote open and close the shutter.
No, the GoPro Hero 3+ does not have a self-timer mode.
But there are several ways of taking 'selfie' photos:
You could set the Hero to timelapse mode, ie taking a photo every
0.5, 1 or 2 seconds. Press the shutter, and it will start taking a series of photos. So you can then get in position for the selfie, and it will get a number of photos of you.
You can ...
No, it is not possible. That is because to use the self timer you must select one of the two Self-timer drive modes. To shoot bursts you must select the Continuous drive mode. You may only select one drive mode at a time, so you must choose one or the other. The same is true with a wireless remote, since that also requires using one of the Self-timer drive ...
Anytime you can afford the delay. It reduces vibration from the mirror movement which simply means there will be reduced vibration in the system. This is always good, unless, of course, you cannot time your shot in advance beause you are shooting a moving subject.
This does not mean that it always needed since there are other sources of vibration such as ...
How do I turn on the infrared remote capability, but turn off the 10 second self timer on my Canon T3i?
In timer/remote mode the camera will fire either 10 seconds after you press the shutter release on the camera, or as soon as it autofocuses when you press the button on the remote. That is, if you use the remote, the camera won't wait 10 seconds, so there ...
Most intervalometers limit a specified number of frames to 999 images or less. However, many intervalometers will also allow you to set them to shoot indefinitely until the intervalometer or camera's battery is exhausted or the memory card is filled.
Most cheap generic intervalometers are based on the same internal components. They're a lot like cheap ...
No. This is not possible. There is a standard metadata field in EXIF which tells if the self-timer was used, but:
There's no guarantee that the cameraphone app in use actually writes this field
Many transfer methods strip all of this off to reduce file sizes,
It's easy to edit, so you even if it's there, you can't trust it....
And if all of that wasn't ...
Have you set the release mode to self timer? (ring at the bottom of the left hand knob that usually says S or CL or CH in the cutout at the back, with an unlock button at front left of the knob) - The self timer symbol is the last one before MUp.
If you've been setting the delay in the menu from the rear LCD, that just sets how long the delay is when in ...
Nikon's cameras have always worked this way, and there is no way to change the behavior. I suppose that it's because if you forget that it's on and miss a shot right now, that's more annoying than the reverse (the situation you've got).
Apparently if you use the optional remote, the two-second-delay-with-remote mode persists, so that may be one way to get ...
Referring to GoPro's support pages for battery life:

How Long Does the HERO5 Black Battery Last?
For the Hero 3 Black, GoPro states
Avg. time for lowest power consumption setting: 1.5 hrs (1080-30)
For the Hero 5 Black, GoPro states the "Estimated Time" for recording 1080p ...
There is a way to fire off 3 exposures in self timer but it is a bit of a "work around'.
If you use Auto Exposure Bracketing along with the Self Timer, the camera will fire off 3 exposures in quick succession. Using 1/3 stop bracketing won't vary the exposure by much.
When using tripod, it can be harmful for image quality to use VR as it does not guarantee shake absence even when camera is steady (if you imply Nikon's VR). However, certain implementations of stabilisation may be good even with tripod but you need to check it yourself.
When canera is not fixed it may indeed be profitable to use exposure delay (both with ...
First go first, you didn't read the manual.
I'm a pro, but I do it everytime I get a new camera, of course I don't read everything, just the new parts. Read the manual.
But let me help you. First assign a custom menu's like this C3 to be
the most used mode, after that C2, C1.

Why every time you shift from C3 back to ...
I have never came across a camera where you can set up a timer for bracketed shooting but I think you have a couple options at your hand.
a6500 supports Sony Play Memories. You can try out installing some apps in your camera and see if any works for you. Bracket Pro and Smart Remote Control are a couple apps that I think may have the features you need.
The self time or 2sec delay would be a configurable option on your camera. Follow this YouTube tutorial for details on how to enable/disable this option:
Alternatively this could be an option on your intervalometer, in which case I would recommend you consult your manual. Usually though an intervalometer is a form ...
