"D5000 how to set shutter delay to persist throughout shoot?"


GB
          

I use my D5000 on a tripod for highest quality closeups of valuable items for sale on eBay etc. I find, no matter how carefully I squeeze down the shutter, that there is some camera movement. As the D5000 does not have a cable release option, and the remote IR release unit has to be reset every time, as does the 10s delay option, I am asking if there is anyway to have the 10 second delay stay active throughout a shoot, rather than having to grope around the front of the camera to press the reset button every time?

You can use a wired remote with the D5000, like this.

This also works with newer cameras, if you upgrade, including the D6x0, D7x00, D5x00 and D3x00 series.

Thank you for your reply - I already had a wired remote left over from my previous D80, and had been bemused to find it did not fit in the 'accessories' slot on the D5000.
Looking at the D5000 flap info logo it says 'GPS' and I sort of assumed that the IR (front view only) had replaced the wired option, and the accessories slot was now handed over to the global gizmo.
Not apparently so - for reasons beyond my comprehension, Nikon had chose to make previous wired remote connectors incompatible with later cameras. Way to make friends, guys.

Not apparently so - for reasons not entirely beyond my comprehension, Nikon had chose to make previous wired remote connectors incompatible with later cameras. Way to make friends, guys - and sell more replacement wired remotes of course.

If you don't need the delay to be 10 seconds, the Custom Setting d5 "exposure delay" does exactly what you are looking for.

JosephK - thanks for this: if only I had had the patience to read through the paper manual to page 159>Menu>Custom Settings> d5, I would have seen that useful (for me) 1 second delay option. Thank you for drawing it to my attention. It works perfectly - and the setting persists until manually switched off, even through to a new session. Thank you again.
