    Dear all,
    my new tripod is here :)

    I would like to use it even today for photoshooting me my wife and the baby together. That should include some timer to allow me to run into the scene.

    I was wondering though if the nex body can take some more shoots after the first one, so I have few shoots to select the best one.

    Is ther esomething like that or it just shoots only one after the timer is off? Continuous shooting would not work as it would take too many shots for this type of duration.

    Hi Alex
    If I were you I would pick up one of those IR remotes. They can be found cheap/inexpensive on Ebay or you can pick up the Sony one.

    My 5N let you choose to take
    - 3 pics after 10 sec delay
    - 5 pics after 10 sec delay
    Your manual will help you with the settings.

    I also bought a cheap IR remote for 3 EUR on the bay.

    I think that remotes don't work with 3's.

    You don't say which Nex you have. If you have a 6 (or 5n?) you can use an iPhone or android as a remote and trigger that way.
