Doing more with your camera
Using the self-timer
Use the self-timer when you want to be included in a picture, or to ensure a steady
Shutter button press. Place the camera on a tripod or flat surface.
1 In any picture-taking mode, press the
10 seconds—A picture is taken after a 10-second
delay (so you have time to get into the scene).
2 seconds—A picture is taken after a 2-second
delay (for a steady, shutter release on a tripod).
2 shot—The first picture is taken after a 10-second
delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later.
2 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button
halfway, then completely down.
The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay.
NOTE: In Panoramic modes (
see page 10
), only the 2- and 10-second options are available.
Use the same procedure to take a 2- or 10-second self-timer video, but press the
Shutter button completely down.
