Taking Pictures with the Self-timer

Note

• When using a tripod etc., 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 once fully, the subject is automatically focused just before 

recording. In dark places, the self-timer indicator will blink and then may turn on brightly 
operating as an AF assist lamp (P76) to allow the camera to focus on the subject.

• We recommend using a tripod when recording with the self-timer.
• The number of pictures which can be taken in [BURST] is fixed to 3.

Move 

2 [ë].

Move 

3/4 to select a mode.

• You can also move 

2 [ë] to select.

Press [MENU/SET].

• You can also press the shutter button halfway to finish.
• The menu screen disappears after about 5 seconds. At this time, the selected item is 

automatically set.

Press the shutter button halfway to focus 
and then press it fully to take the picture.

• The self-timer indicator A blinks and the shutter is 

activated after 10 seconds (or 2 seconds).

• If you press [MENU/SET] while the self-timer is set, the 

self-timer setting is canceled.
