This command dial setting, which looks like a clock, is the self-timer mode. Turn the dial to this setting and press the shutter release. The camera will start beeping or playing a tune and will take a photo about 10 seconds later. You can cancel the timer by switching the camera to another mode (or turning it off) before the picture is shot.

Note that the timer mode is the same as P mode with the 10 second timer. There’s no way to operate the camera in, say, Av mode with a timer - something of a limitation. There’s also no way to change the time value.

Self-timer mode is commonly used for two things. First, it lets you take self-portraits - or group shots including you - if you put the camera onto a tripod. And second, it’s useful for slow shutter speed shots where camera blur might be a problem - you can put the camera onto a tripod and take the photo without risking camera shake caused by your finger pressing the shutter release. In either case it’s best to focus on the subject first and then switch the lens to manual focus mode once you’re satisfied. This avoids the problem of the camera autofocussing on the wrong thing when it takes a photo unattended.

Note one detail. Normally when you take a photo you’re looking through the viewfinder and your face is therefore covering it. However, in self-timer mode the viewfinder is left uncovered and stray light can enter the camera, possibly throwing off the internal light meter. So when using the timer it’s wise to cover the viewfinder with something. Some camera straps include a plastic cover on one end that can be used to cover the viewfinder. Or you could put a grey or black plastic film canister cap over it if you have one around - they fit nicely. The one time this isn’t necessary is M mode since you’re setting both aperture and shutter speed manually
