Re: How to operate Self timer in D70s
It's the "shooting mode" button on the top rear of the camera -to the left of the eyepiece - looks like 2 or 3 sheets on top of each other. Hold it down and use the wheel to select the self-timer clock.

On top of the camera body, on left side(as your using it, there are 2 buttons. Not the one that says bkt, but the other one is pressed and whiloe pressed rotate the command dial until a circle with an arrow at approximatley 11 o;clock show on the LCD screen. Timer can then be used. To cancel, Press button and rotate command dial to normal.
Press the Shooting Mode button (just to the left of the viewfinder, marked with overlapping rectangles) and rotate the command dial until the self-timer icon (sort of like a one-handed clock) is displayed in the control panel.
Frame the photograph and focus.
For best results, cover the viewfinder.
Press the shutter release button all the way down to start the self-timer.
You can cancel the self-timer by selecting another shooting mode, or by turning off the camera.
Custom Settings #24 lets you change the delay to 2, 5, 10, or 20 seconds.
The D70 has a setting on the timer, and the explanation can also be found in your manual on page 105. Steps: 1. go to your "Custom Setting" menu (looks like a pencil) and go down to item 24, "Self-Timer." Select the number of seconds delay you desire. 2. Press the "Format" button and rotate the main dial until you see a small clock symbol on the Control Panel.
3. The camera is now ready for delayed shutter. Don't forget to set the "Format" back to S for single shooting afterwards.
Ok, you need to hold down the multi frame button on the top left of the back of the camera, then turn the dial (front I think) till it shows the little clock timer on the screen. It will give you a 10 second timer.
