Very much a newbie to the whole DSLR thing, recently bought a 400D, amongst the features that I liked I was told that you could activate the self timer by using a wireless remote. This was a feature that I wanted as the self timer facility on my previous compacts did not leave me enough time to take a decent "self" picture when I was fishing ( I have a comprehensive catalogue of shots with me in various stages of "Carp juggling" !!)
I went out and bought an RC 5 wireless remote today but cannot find a way of activating the self timer with it, all I can do is take a shot with a 2 sec delay. Any help - even if its "you've been mis-informed as to the desired capability" would be appreciated.
Hope theres a solution otherwise (god forbid) I'll have to teach the wife how to use the canon and take her fishing with me.
I don't remember a ten second remote feature on the EOS 400D. I only remember a two-second remote feature, and a ten-second self-timer.
