It gives an option for 3sec, 10sec(default), and 30 sec. Just wondering what changing the setting would do. No info in the manual of how it affects shooting.

It is for AE-L (AE lock) function, i.e. how long the current locked AE value stays. If you don't use AE-L button, it has no effect to you.

It doesn't directly affect shooting. With the DS, anyway, it changes how long (3, 10, or 30 seconds) the camera's meter remains on when you half-press and then let up the shutter release button. Also, the time-out for the AE lock function is twice that setting once you let up the buttons.
