HI, i HAVE JUST RECEIVED AN SX130 IS AS A GIFT BUT I CANNOT FIND IN THE MANUAL ANYTHING ABOUT THE SELF TIMER. I CANNOT WORK OUT HOW TO SET IT. CAN YOU GIVE ME DIRECTION PLEASE? THANK YOU V....


Press the Down arrow (from the buttons around the Func./Set button. Either turn the ring or use the up/down arrows to select the clock icon with 10 in it. Press the Func./Set button. Press the shutter button halfway to get the camera to focus on the subject as you normally would. Then press the shutter button fully. The lamp will blink and the timer sound will play. When there are two seconds left before the camera takes the picture, the lamp and timer sound will speed up. The lamp stays lit when the flash goes off.The Canon self-timer basic settings are on page 57 in the pdf of user's guide. Direct link is: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/5/0300003855/04/PSSX130IS_CUG_EN_03.pdf . Page 63 has the details for using a blink as the trigger for a delayed shot (since I wear glasses I've never tried this type of timer). Page 64 has the directions for a "take picture after a new face enters the frame of the shot".

If the direct link doesn't work, start here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx130_is#BrochuresAndManuals .

I hope this helps.

How to set self timer?


The self timer is indicated on the display with a clock type indication. It is circular arrow with a central arrow inside the circular indicating the timer.
Find this out from the menu. most of the camera have it with button seperately that can be pressed to set off the presetted time. This time can be set accordingly ... to your spacing.
Check this out and trigger the timer to set the camera ticking to click.

Is there a self timer option on the D70?


Hi David,
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.


Hope this helps,

Trying to figure out how to use the timer on my Nikon Coolpix S570


Press the self-timer button (left of OK).

Press up or down to choose either two second or ten second delay.

Frame the picture and press the shutter release halfway to set focus and exposure.

Press the shutter button the rest of the way. The self-timer starts, the remaining number of seconds shows on the display, and the self-timer lamp blinks.

After the picture is taken, the self-timer reverts to OFF.

To cancel the self-timer, press the shutter release button again.

Fuller details can be found in the manual under "Taking Pictures with the Self-timer."

Self Timer Activation


The instruction manual is quite poor. Once you have decided which option you would like (2 or 10 seconds) you must go back to the main menu to select which drive mode you would like. Single is default. From single, you can select self-timer, which will activate it for your next shot. The drive mode will always reset back to single after every shot so you'll need to set this up for every self-timed shot.

Happy shooting!
