    Intervalometer Self-Portraits Or Family Photos

    I saw this video on using the intervalometer of the Z6 being used to capture self-portraits and those family photos where everyone wants you to be in the photo.

    I have never tried the self-portrait because of the hassle of getting the photo in focus. I have taken those photos where the family all lines up and I either hit the timer or used a remote to get the photo but it is always a pain for me to get the shot right. Philip Flores demonstrates how you can use the intervalometer in many Nikon's to take a series of shots and since the shots will auto-focus you can be assured that the shot you get will be in focus and you can take as many as you want to capture that one where most everyone is smiling.

    He did the demo with a Z6. I thought it was a cool idea. Wanted to share it.

    The self focusing feature is nice.

    That was the part that I found interesting. Family group shots are always a challenge and auto focus was something nice to have.
