When used simply as a remote release no timer functions , the TCN3 does not require battery power. Note: Touching the silver collar will prevent the plug from locking. To remove the plug, grasp the silver collar and pull outward. Setting a Time Amount 1. Press the Mode Button to select one of the three timing modes self-timer, interval, or long exposure.
Press the Jog Dial to select the time unit you wish to set. When the time unit you wish to set is blinking, turn the Jog Dial to the amount you want. After setting a time unit, press the Jog Dial once to register it. Repeat Step 3 for any additional time units you wish to set. Once a time unit has been registered it will no longer blink. Self-timer Mode 1. Use the Jog Dial to set the desired delay time. The Self-timer icon will start blinking and the time display will count down.
The shutter will release when the timer reaches zero 0. Press it again to resume. Doing so may interfere with the TC80N3's timer function. Interval Timer Mode 1. Use the Jog Dial to set the desired time interval. The camera will immediately take the first exposure. Note: If you want to program a sequence of exposures at a given interval you must set the exposure count to an amount greater than one.
Subsequent exposures will be at the interval you have set. Interval Timer Mode continued 3. Note: The interval you select must be longer than than the combined time of the shutter speed and shutter recocking time, otherwise the result will be continuous shooting.
When you are shooting with electronic flash the time interval you set must be longer than the flash recycle time. If the time interval is less than the recycle time the shutter will not release until the flash unit has recycled.
With Canon Speedlites that have the Save Energy SE feature, the flash will automatically recycle one minute before the exposure. Long Exposure Mode 1. You must set the camera's shutter to Bulb B , otherwise the camera will shoot continuously until the exposure time you have set expires or you run out of exposures, whichever comes first. Use the Jog Dial to set the desired exposure time.
The exposure will start, the icon will blink and the exposure time will begin to count down. Note: For unattended shooting, focus manually. If the camera is set to AF and is unable to find focus it may not release the shutter. Exposure Count 1. Press the Mode Button to select the Exposure Count mode. Press the Jog Dial. The exposure count digits will begin to blink. Turn the Jog Dial to the number of exposures you want, from 1 to If you set the counter to 00, the number of exposures will limited only by the amount of film or memory card space available.
Press the Jog Dial to register the number of exposures. Once an amount has been registered the exposure count display will no longer blink.
The camera will begin shooting and will continue until it completes the number of exposures you have. The TCN3 will count down the number of exposures. Unless you specify a specific interval, the exposures will be taken at one-second intervals. Note: When shooting a sequence of exposures with flash, set the interval timer so that the flash will have enough time to recyle between exposures.
Hold Function The Hold function prevents accidental changes to your settings. To activate this function, press and hold the Display Illuminator Button for at least three seconds until the Hold indicator appears on the display. To cancel this function, press and hold the Display Illuminator Button for at least three seconds until the Hold indicator disappears.
Setting the time or number of exposures to 0 will cancel the respective mode. The remote switch function does not require battery power. As with your camera's shutter button, you can press the Release Button either halfway or all the way. Pressing it halfway activates your camera's autofocus and exposure meter.
Pressing it all the way will release the shutter. For long exposures or continuous shooting, press the Release Button completely and slide it forward, in the direction of the Running Lock Arrow.
This will lock the button in the fully depressed position. To release the button, slide it back to its original position. Note: Even when the Interval Mode or Self-timer are active, you can still take a picture immediately by pressing the Release Button or your camera's shutter button.
Also note that the timing or exposure count mode you have set will not be affected if you use the Release Button. During a long exposure that is controlled by the TCN3, however, the release button will be inoperable. Timer Mode Combinations.

Compatible Remote Switch (EOS 5D Mark III)
Excellent - now you need a way to trip the shutter without moving the camera. You could use the camera's built-in self-timer, but your subject may be long gone until it fires. Missing an N3 port, the Rebel series 4xxD models as of this writing are not compatible. Like the camera's shutter release, the RSN3 supports a half-press or full press - which releases the shutter. In addition, the remote release button slides forward while pressed in - this will lock the shutter open in B Bulb mode. The Canon Remote Switch RSN3 is very light but relatively expensive but valuable to own - it is a valuable piece of kit to have.
