Post Help needed
Hi Folks
I am newbie and I just wanted to say hello and ask for some advice.
I have a Nikon D3100 and I am very interested in doing my first timelapse. I looked into what I would need and started to read about intervalometers.
Didnt have a clue, so went on you tube and found out. I ordered one from amazon. Only cost £15. Didnt want to spend too much at first, but if I enjoy timelapse I will get abetter one.
It arrived today. I plugged it into my Nikon set the meter up and pressed start. I only set it for 5 sec intervals, nothing else. When ipressed start, the meter counted down, went green for the last 2 secs then red then nothing. It started the processs again and nothing.
I have tried everything and it wont work.
I have plugged it in the GPS slot, but I am not sure if I have to set up the camera in anyway. I have set the wheel to manual as well as the auto focus.

Have any of you lovely people got any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong.

Many Thanks
Andy

Hi Folks

Sorted it. For some reason there is a 3.5mm jack half way down the cable from the hand unit. I fiddled about with that and it worked. Must be a dodgy connector.
Will send it back and get a better one.
At least I know now that its not my camera.
