still image

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.

  1. MENU (Shooting) → [Drive Mode][Drive Mode][Self-timer(Single)].
  2. Select the desired mode using the right/left side of the control wheel.
  3. Adjust the focus and shoot the image.
    A beep will sound, and a picture will be taken after the designated number of seconds have elapsed.
