Taking Pictures with the Self-timer

When using the self-timer, use of a tripod is recommended.
Press the multi selector n (self-timer).
The self-timer menu is displayed.

10s or 2s and press the k button.
10s (ten seconds): Use on important occasions, such as
2s (two seconds): Use to prevent camera shake
The mode selected for self-timer is displayed.
If a setting is not applied by pressing the k button within a few seconds, the selection
will be canceled.
Frame the picture and press the
shutter-release button halfway.
Focus and exposure will be set.
Press the shutter-release button the
rest of the way down.
The self-timer starts, and the number of
seconds remaining before the shutter is
released is displayed in the monitor. The self-
timer lamp blinks while the timer is counting
down. About one second before the shutter is
released, the lamp stops blinking and glows
When the shutter is released, the self-timer will
be set to OFF.
To stop the timer before a picture is taken, press
the shutter-release button again.
