I am trying to set the self timer, can anyone help me with that?


Self timer is not available in AUTO mode.
Please check the other options ( As I do not remember the other right now)
Select the other options available (eg: Tv,Av etc) and hit function key and scroll down.
In the self timer it self you can also mention how many shots you want to take.
Also you can see teh manual. In the last pages it is being under teh section Self timer.
