Shooting Interval Timer on Nikon D5300
What is the internal timer for shooting?
Nikon interval camera shooting lets you capture subject or object images as they change over time. This is also known as time-lapse photography. You don’t need to be concerned about this as your Nikon can set the shutter or release it in multiple intervals, ranging from seconds up to hours. It doesn’t take much effort to press the shutter button all the time. The feature is available to you and you can then use it easily.
Interval timer shooting is easy
Step 1. Setting
Make sure you set the release mode to quiet shutter or single frame. The fastest way to access the settings is to press the Release button on the camera’s front left.
Step 2. Display

Step 5 The fifth step is to create a recording session
The little value box will appear at the top of the screen. The highlighted box corresponds to or explains the setting highlighted at the bottom. This is an active option.

These are a few of the things that you should remember
- The interval and start times are calculated using a 24-hour clock. This information is based upon the date and time you entered when the camera was set up. It can be found in the lower corner.
- Open the left column box to set the interval option. You should make sure the interval value is longer than the usual shutter speed.
- For the start time option, you can only set the hour and minute values
Step 6 Multi-selector
The screen will display the on/off options.
Step 7 Highlight and press OK.
The selection you made in step 3 as a start-time option is now. The first shot will be taken in approximately 3 seconds. If you have set a delayed start, the camera will display a message saying Timer Active for a few seconds.
Keep these things in mind
- The card access light blinks when there is an interval timer shooting.
- The interval timer is not available for live view photography and effects exposure.
- While the interval sequence is being played, you won’t have the ability to adjust the camera settings.
