I have a T2i and it seems to have two sets of timers, one that gives you 2 seconds and the other that gives you 10 seconds but takes at least 2 pictures in a row.

Is there a way to get a timer that is 10 seconds and only takes one shot? 2 seconds doesnt give me a lot of time to get in the frame and pose and the other one with 2 shots in a row isnt good for my battery powered flashes. :)

At either two secs or 10 secs i should only take one shot - the shutter is only released onece.
Are you sure it takes two pics - never heaard of that happening before.

If it is set to bracket the exposure then it will take 3 but I have not heard of 2 shots being taken on the timer either.

Are you sure there are two saved images? How much time is between them?

it has two timer settings, the first one is 2 seconds and takes one shot, the 2nd one seems to be 10 seconds and you can set how many pictures it takes between 2 and 10 or something like that.

Well, the 2~10 one is a third setting, but it looks like you were using that one. You have:

- Single
- Continuous
- 10-second delay or remote
- 2 second delay
- 10-second delay with 2~10 consecutive

That one is news to me - is this unique to the T2i?

Yes, when you select the last drive mode....you can also select how many pictures it takes....

so it would be 2 secs=2 pictures.
3 secs=3 pictures
4 secs=4 pictures

and so on...

If that's the case it's different from the 500D T1i where it's 10sec delay and then fires the images as fast as the camera can manage given the exposure settings used.

duh on me. the one with the remote icon did the trick. I didnt give that one a try because I was thinking it was only for the remote. Thanks! :)

but on mine when I choose the 2 frames, it does 2 shots after a 10 second delay, not 2 seconds. :)

It's definitely not intuitive just looking at it.

but on mine when I choose the 2 frames, it does 2 shots after a 10 second delay, not 2 seconds.

Right (for the T2i at least).
