Taking Pictures with the Self-timer
1 Select the self-timer mode.
: Self-timer set to 10 seconds
;
: Self-timer set to 2 seconds
;
No display: canceled
2 Take the picture.
A: Press the shutter button halfway to 
focus.
B: Press the shutter button fully to take 
the picture.
• The self-timer indicator 
C blinks and the 
shutter is activated 
after 10 seconds (or 
2 seconds).
• If you press the 
[MENU] button when the self-timer is 
set, the self-timer setting is canceled.
• When using a tripod or in other cases, 
setting the self-timer to 2 seconds is a 
convenient way to avoid the jitter caused 
by pressing the shutter button.
• When you press the shutter button fully 
with one stroke, the subject is 
automatically focused just before the 
recording. In dark places, the self-timer 
indicator blinks and then it may turn on 
brightly to work as the AF assist lamp 
(P74) for focusing on the subject.
• In simple mode [
], the self-timer is fixed 
to 10 seconds.
• In [SELF PORTRAIT] (P64) in scene 
mode, the self-timer is fixed to 2 seconds.
• When you set the self-timer in the burst 
mode, the camera starts taking a picture 2 
or 10 seconds after the shutter button is 
pressed. The number of pictures taken at 
a time is fixed to 3.
• We recommend using a tripod when 
recording with the self-timer.
(When you use a tripod, make sure the 
tripod is stable when the camera is 
attached to it.)
