  1. Place your camera on a tripod and prepare your scene.
  2. While in a shooting mode, press the timer button (the bottom button in the circle set on of the back of the camera). Press it repeatedly. It will cycle through self-timer and remote-control. On the screen, a Timer will appear for the self-timer and a little Remote with a lightning bolt will appear for the remote-control. Stop pressing the button when the timer appears, pause for 3 seconds to allow the camera to confirm the setting the icon will disappear.
  3. These instructions are described on Pg 55 of the manual, but I will repeat them in simplified form in case you don't have the manual.
  4. Once the timer setting is set, press the shutter-release button fully. If you press it half-way it will focus and lock the exposure, then press it fully.
  5. The self timer/remote control lamp will light for 10 seconds. Get in position in the scene, after the 10 seconds the light will begin blinking. After 2 more seconds, the picture is taken.
  6. To cancel the timer mode, press the Timer button again; however the timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.
It is important in all timer scene shots with cameras, don't stand directly in front of the camera because this will then focus on you instead of the scene.

How do I set the timer?


Press the self-timer button. It's the bottom part of the cross-shaped button on the back, marked with a clock icon. Each press of the button cycles between ON and OFF.

After pressing the shutter release button completely, the self-timer lamp lights for approximately ten seconds, blinks for approximately two seconds, then the picture is taken.

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

The self-timer is automatically canceled after one shot.

How do I use the timer on my my Olympus Stylus 720 SW.


To shoot with the self timer: have the camera in shooting mode - press teh down arrow on the back of the camera until the symbol shows that looks like a clock - this turns self timer on.

After it is set to ON - fully depress the shutter button - this will start the self timer process you have 12 seconds if you want to be in the shot -

This is a one shot deal. If you wish tio take another photo using self timer you have to set it up again.
