Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

Delay feature on the Canon powershot A520?

I want to get myself in my own photos. Is there a delay type of feature that allows me to do this? (EX. Push a button - situate myself in front of the camera - and the camera snaps a photo a few seconds later). I have misplaced my instruction booklet so I cannot look this question up at the moment. Thank you. Mary

All i want to know is if the canon a620 can be set to take a photo on its own without pressing the button to snap the photo....i want to take 'certain' photos of myself and no one to take...


No, you have to press the shutter release button to take the picture.
Press the FUNC/SET button. Use up/down to select Drive Mode (the rectangle, third item from the top). Use left/right to select the desired delay and press FUNC/SET. This sets the self-timer. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual.

Delay Between Flash and Taking Photo


I also have this problem on a Canon A85. For some reason setting the camera to landscape allows the shutter and flash to work together properly.

3. Scroll down to Drive Mode icon (usually single square)
4. Use left/right arrow to select 2-sec or 10-sec delay (clock with 2 or 10 next to it)

Now whenever you press the shutter button, the camera will delay 2 or 10 seconds before snapping the picture. Remember to set back to single shot (single square) or continuous shooting (three overlaid squares) mode when done.

Self timer.
