Hi Susan, and welcome to FixYa-
I have had the exact problem that you are describing, albeit a different make and model of camera. Here's how I solved my issue:
I grabbed the nearest heavy object and smashed the camera....
No, but seriously, try this:
The S700 has the standard "Scene Selector" knob on the top. Make sure that this is NOT pointed toward (set to) the "Self Timer" option. The icon for this, on the camera's body, looks similar to the "Auto" setting icon.
The S700 has 3 timer modes: a 10 second delay, 2 second delay and a "Double" mode wherein the camera waits 10 seconds, takes one picture then, after an additional 2 second delay, will take a second picture. The delay must be selected by the user and will appear in your LCD viewing screen. Prior to taking a test picture, look in the display screen to see if any numbers appear. If you see any, you know that the camera is in the Self Timer mode. Simply rotate the button on top of the camera to the "Auto" icon and you'll be all set.
Good luck, and let us know how you go!
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.
Using the self-timer Use the self-timer when you want to be included in a picture, or to ensure a steady Shutter button press. Place the camera on a tripod or flat surface. 1 In any picture-taking mode, press the Info button to turn on the shortcut icons. 2 Press to highlight the self-timer icon. Press to choose a setting: 10 seconds- A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get into the scene). 2 seconds- A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, shutter release on a tripod). 2 shot- The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later. 3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down. The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay. Use the same procedure to take a 2- or 10-second self-timer video, but press the Shutter button completely down.
There is a self timer button to the left of the menu button which gives you 2 or 10 second delay. Just prop up the camera set the timer and press the shutter button, then scramble round in front of the camera!
1 In any Still mode, tap Settings to open the Settings panel. 2 Tap Self-Timer/Burst repeatedly, until the desired Self-timer icon appears at the bottom of the LCD: 10 seconds—A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get into the scene). 2 seconds—A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, auto-shutter release on a tripod). 2 shot—The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later. 3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down. The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay.
There is a self-timer option in most cameras. Go to menu and you should be able to find it. The user manual that came with the camera should mention it. Go into self timer and set the number of minutes to delay so that you can have enough time to include yourself in the photo. Unfortunately you have not specified the make and model of your camera.
Hey drathy, Without knowing what camera you are using I can't give you specific directions, but what you are looking for is the self-timer function. You can usually change how long the self-timer delays the shutter for in you menu. What you do is set the self-timer and press the shutter button, and then you run around to get into the image. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
