Frame the photograph.

Take the photograph.
Self-timer mode
: Press the shutter-
release button halfway to focus, and 
then press the button the rest of the 
way down to start the self-timer. The 
self-timer lamp will start to blink and a 
beep will begin to sound. Two 
seconds before the photograph is taken, the self-timer lamp will stop blinking 
and the beeping will become more rapid. The shutter will be released ten 
seconds after the timer starts.
The timer will not start if the camera is unable to focus or in other situations in 
which the shutter can not be released.
Delayed remote and quick-response remote 
modes
: From a distance of 5 m (16 ft.) or 
less, aim the transmitter on the ML-L3 
at the infrared receiver on the camera 
and press the shutter-release button 
on the ML-L3. In delayed remote 
mode, the self-timer lamp will light for about two seconds before the shutter is 
released. In quick-response remote mode, the self-timer lamp will flash after 
the shutter has been released. No picture will be taken if the camera is unable 
to focus or in other situations in which the shutter can not be released.
If no operations are performed for about five minutes after selecting delayed 
remote or quick-response remote modes, the camera will automatically return 
to single frame or continuous mode, cancelling remote control mode.

Using a Remote Control
If autofocus is in effect in delayed remote or quick-response remote mode, the camera 
can be focused by pressing the shutter-release button halfway (the shutter will not be 
released if the shutter-release button is pressed all the way down).

Cover the Viewfinder
After framing the photograph, remove 
the DK-20 rubber eyecup (q) and insert 
the supplied DK-5 eyepiece cap as 
shown (w). This prevents light entering 
via the viewfinder interfering with 
exposure. Hold the camera firmly when 
removing the rubber eyecup.
