For movies shot using the self-timer, [Delay] represents the delay 
before recording begins, but the [Shots] setting has no effect.
When you specify multiple shots, image brightness and white balance are 
determined by the first shot. More time is required between shots when the
flash fires or when you have specified to take many shots. Shooting will stop
automatically when the memory card becomes full.
