Look through the viewfinder and
press the shutter button halfway.
Make sure the in-focus indicator
and exposure setting are
displayed.
Press the shutter button
completely. The self-timer lamp will
start blinking to indicate that the
self-timer has started. The lamp
blinks faster during the two
seconds before the picture is
taken.
• To cancel the self-timer after it starts, set
the <
> switch to <
>.
The 2-second delay is effective for close-ups or photo duplicating work to prevent
camera shake (camera movement while the shutter button is pressed).

Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to start the
self-timer. Doing so will throw off the focus.
