Taking Pictures with the Self-timer

The camera is equipped with a ten-second and two-second timer for self-portraits.
This feature is useful for reducing the effects of camera shake that occurs when
pressing the shutter-release button.
When using the self-timer, use of a tripod is recommended.
1
Press the multi selector n (self-timer).
The self-timer menu is displayed.
2
Press the multi selector H or I to choose
10s or 2s and press the k button.
10s (ten seconds): Use on important occasions, such as
weddings
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.
3
Frame the picture and press the
shutter-release button halfway.
Focus and exposure will be set.
4
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
steadily.
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.
