Shoots an image using the self-timer after a designated number of seconds have elapsed since the shutter button was pressed. Use the 5-second/10-second self-timer when you are going to be in the picture, and use the 2-second self-timer to reduce camera-shake caused by pressing the shutter button.

  2. MENU (Shooting) → [Drive Mode][Self-timer Type][Self-timer(Single)] → desired mode.
    • The setting screen for [Self-timer Type] can be displayed by pressing the Fn button.
  3. Adjust the focus and shoot the image.
    The self-timer lamp flashes, a beep sounds, and a picture is taken after the designated number of seconds have elapsed.
