    I use my LG G3 for Remote control, works like a charm with Smart Remote
    App, check it out!

    On my Panasonic GX7, i can control and watch my camera from my smartphone!
    You just need Wifi.

    Hi you mention you can make use of an old PC monitor to use as your live
    screen for your camera?.. can i do that with my canon 60D?.. what type of
    wire do i need to use?.. is that the wire included with my camera?.. im not
    really sure hehe thanks

    **Cool tip!!: instead of that expensive tv, you can just use a mirror and
    place it into the back of the camera!!

    So this is what’s on my mind today. I’m going to practice on myself later
    on this evening.

    for the focus just buy a wireless infrared trigger and press its shutter.
    Then, the camera focuses and takes a pic

    i love you men..

  9. Jake Mulholland says:

    you can also use Face detection on newer cameras, a little slow on the AF
    but it gets there!

    If you’re using 7D, you don’t need the pocket wizard though. Switch the
    drive mode to remote shooting then use one of Canon’s infrared remote to
    shoot considering 7D supports infrared remote control.

  11. Wagna144 says:

    Another possibility is to download the “Magic Lantern” software on your
    Canon DSLR camera. There is a mode where as soon as something is in focus,
    the camera makes a picture for you. It is for free also. :) You’re welcome
    ;)

    you could use a laptop too

  13. djeemsg says:

    Thanks Mark. What is the tripod’s head you’re using please? Thanks a lot

  14. dapinkblush says:

    Can i use PC instead of TV*???

  15. dgevert says:

    Yongnuo YN-560s. Shoot through white umbrellas. Learn to use manual flash
    and you’ll find that the world of strobist/off camera flash photography is
    more accessible than you think. Or on camera flash for fill + the sun
    behind you for backlight for well-lit outside shots. Or a 5-in-1 reflector
    and some creativity for hanging it up. Hint: use a north or south-facing
    window as a nice, soft side light. Then use the reflector as fill for the
    shadow side of your face.

  16. GreeenRob says:

    Yeah well this is liek with cannon 60D and light and screen and lots of
    stuff not fora an awerege picture!!

  17. BABS G says:

    what kind of cable did you use to connect your camera to the computer?

  18. MAHMOUD says:

    What is the recommended focal length for this self portrait ?

  19. KsantiMedia says:

    Is there any way to get the camera to continuously AF during the 10s delay?

  20. Gallamist says:

    ^^^^ IS A SCAM ^^^^

    What happened to the promised three videos a week? Monday to Wed, every
    week for 2010?

  22. alucardleashed says:

    Awesome video, Mark – You’ve given us so many options on how to take a good
    self-portrait! What’s the brand and make of the cable you used to keep the
    shutter button in a half-pressed state?

  23. Rome Wilkerson-Photography says:
