Canon still provides a free PDF download of the 20D manual (as of this writing) at I realize. Try here The quality is Ok but it takes ages to print out. Andy. #2 ajbenie, Nov 5. Yes and Yes! Have you refered to the manual? http://www. Stock-Photos, Apr 26,

Is there a way to set a shorter delay for the self timer? Will it still consume even very little power when the camera is shut down with the switch is in ON position? Have you refered to the manual? Stock-PhotosApr 26, Specs indicate 10 sec delay only. Well, you said it before I did. Thanks for the link. It’s much easier to search the PDF file than the pocket book.

However, I still can’t find the information about if the auto power off is a complete power off. Set your “Drive” mode to “Timer” button on top of 20d. It will lift the mirror when you press the button and open the shutter in 2 seconds. Perfect for tripod use, especially at night as it minimises any vibrations from the flipping mirror.
I regard to power, I usually keep on on for the duration of my fn shoot, the 20d is pretty much like a film camera, virtually no power consumption between shots.

For you second question, is it important about power consumption? As many other electronic devices, the auto power off is completely off except the date and time that are run by a back-up battery CR Even the camera is completely off, the battery is leaking over time if you don’t use it.
A new battery holds power longer than an old one. Usually 2 battery packs will last all day of shooting. Wouldn’t mirror lock-up tend to be less important with the longer exposure?
Regarding where to leave the power switch, I suspect the only difference setting the switch to off makes is to prevent you accidentally trigger the eoa20dim. Wouldn’t mirror lock-up tend to eos20vim less important with the longer exposure?.
Manual for 20D
Thanks, Vlad, and I should read a bit more carefully. The remote is a very good option. I have the TCN3, you can set the self timer to anything you wish and it enables you to use eos20dik large number of shooting modes.
It seems strange that a sophiticated camera like the 20D has a single timer delay, yet my relatively simple Fujifilm Z had both 10 and 2 second delays.
Yeah, with mirror lockup the delay is conveniently short, I use it a lot. Just remember to turn lockup off if you are trying to do a family portrait later! I have some embarrassing family photos eos20dkm my ass, as I tried to jump into the photo with only a two second delay.
Oops, forgot to turn off mirror lockup again. You’ll look like a goof in front of everybody, especially if you don’t immediately recognize what you did wrong. You can see that by inserting a CF card with the switch set to off and watching the indicator light that shows the camera is checking the card. But current drain is very slow weeks unless you have inadvertently left some power-hungry operation running.
Two minor questions about 20D
With the auto power-down, the main battery drain is pretty close to none once the camera goes to sleep. Leaving it in menu mode, I guess, or using it to transfer files, etc, will drain the battery after some time. I leave mine on, but make sure you press the trigger halfway to enter shooting mode before putting it in the bag.
