    Leon Bartropp has just done a video on you tube using one of these or something similar.
    I've recently purchased one for my Canon 600D and have been mucking about with it to get the settings right for me. Leon's vid is good as it will gives you a rough guide. Still confused about ' Long ' on the intervalometer as I thought that should be set to 0 seconds ?

    i set a 40 sec delay ( that way i can start it off before collecting fish from the water ) i set long at zero , have a 8 sec delay between shots ( i set at 8 as any less the image wont show on my flip screen between shots )and i set it to take 50 shots , only take a few of each side but 50 means there is no messing about if the fish is a bit lively !

    then just stop it once fish has been returned ......

    great bit of kit , would rather just do it myself these days unless i'm sure someone can take a good shot!

    Think I use 10 sec delay then 5 sec intervals with long at zero.
    Best 12 quid I've ever spent.

    Thanks. I'll keep ' long ' at zero then and think I'll try seven or eight seconds between shots. My 600D with a 'nifty fifty' lens seems like it needs longer than 4 or 5 seconds to auto focus properly and display on the flip screen. I guess each camera and lens is different so only by playing will you get the settings spot on. But agree, set the intervalometer to take a stack of pics, you'll always get a few decent ones.

    I've recently got one of those and use it on my 650D with a kit lens, wished I'd have bought one sooner. Used to use an old Power shot A640 with bulb release for self-takes.

    I have mine set on a 30 second delay with 4 seconds between each shot and have set the amount of shots to 200. This way I can take all the shots I need of each side in one sitting and just keep the best 4/5 of each side. Having a flip around screen helps a lot.

    Dimbers - Off topic, how'd you find the nifty 50? Am looking at getting a 35mm and can't get my head around spending 450 on a bit of glass.

    Mason - Tinpot has done a short video on this, makes it all rather simplistic really.
    Maybe its because i'm a londoner

    Please tell me that the above figures are a typo!

    I make that 830 seconds in total. Add say even 70 seconds for unhooking and returning and that means 15 minutes out of the water!

    Any member doing that on my water would very soon be an ex-member!

    i bought a nifty 50 for my 600d about a year ago , getting on fine with it , massive improvement on the kit lens and have not found the distance to be an issue at all ......

    it produces good background blur ( if you like those kind of shots )

    I concur with what Carphooker said. Have read lots of chat from anglers on various forums, including here, saying you need to have the camera so far back to get the framing / composition spot on....but I've not found it an issue either. Obviously that might change if I find myself in a tiny swim with little or no space. Look on ebay and if you're lucky you might find a nifty fifty lens for a bargain price. Mine was hardly used and like new, paid 50 notes.
