Suggestions/Tips 

¬

• When using a tripod or in other cases, 

setting the self-timer to 2 seconds is 
convenient to stabilize the jitter caused 
by pressing the shutter button.

• The self-timer 

indicator 

1 blinks 

and the shutter is 
activated after 
10 seconds (or 
2 seconds).

• When pressing the button fully at a 

stroke, the subject is automatically 
focused just before recording pictures.

• In Simple mode [

], the self-timer 

can only be set to 10 seconds.

• In Self-portrait mode [

], the 

self-timer can only be set to 
2 seconds.

• When setting the self-timer in the burst 

mode, you can take only 1 picture.

• We recommend using a tripod when 

setting the self-timer.
