How to work the self-timer on the canon A560 digital camera

I find in the instruction manual where it says what the self timer does just not how to work it. I need the steps on how to carry out this function. I can go into the menu, scroll down to self timer select 10,2 or customize sec and #of shots then I'm lost. I can't figure what to do next. Nothing I have tried works. Please Help! Thanks Lauri.

Once you have the self-timer set, simply press the shutter release button as you normally would to take a picture, and the timer will start.

I can't find my instructions book for my canon powershot a560 and i'm not sure what mode i should have it in, on the top button, to be able to use the timer


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. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

The self-timer should work in just about any mode.

How do I set the self timer on my cannon a560 camera?


Press the self-timer button to cycle through self-timer settings. The rectangle indicates normal shooting, the clock indicates self-timer. Depending on the shooting mode, you may also see overlapped rectangles for continuous shooting.

To change the delay time, select [Self-timer] from the Recording menu.

The self-timer button is the same as the down-arrow on the circular multi-selector, marked with a clock.

How do i set the timer on my canon powershot a560 to take a pic


There's a button with a clock next to it. Press that button and put your camera where you want it. Press the shutter release half way, to get focused. When you press it the whole way down, the timer will start and you will have 8-10 seconds. There is normally a burst of a few flashes when it takes the picture.

How to use the selftimer on canon A560


Technical devices get sometimes so complicated that they are useless. What I have been seeking on my ShureShot 560 camera for the last two years is a self-timer. I select it in the menu, press the menu button, and no self-timer again. Which one of the thousands of combinations the camera can supposingly accommodate is going wrong? Is there a trick everybody else knows omitted in the Guidebook, or my camera is defective?
