Before Shooting
Choose single-frame (S), continuous low speed (C
L
), or continuous high 
speed (C
H
) release mode when using the interval timer. Before beginning 
interval timer photography, take a test shot at current settings and view 
the results in the monitor. Remember that the camera will focus before 
each shot—no shots will be taken if the camera is unable to focus in 
single-servo AF.
Before choosing a starting time, select [World time] in the setup menu 
and make sure that the camera clock is set to the correct time and date 
(pg. 37).
Use of a tripod is recommended. Mount the camera on a tripod before 
shooting begins.
To ensure that shooting is not interrupted, be sure the battery is fully 
charged.
