Press cursor-down on the multiselector (marked with a one-handed clock) to cycle through the different self-timer modes. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

I have a Fujifilm Finepix S5200. Need to know if there's an option to set a 2 second timer PERMANENTLY, and not have to set the 2 second timer every time i take one picture. Thanks -Leo


Nnteen,
I'm sorry, but I don't believe that can be done. The settings for the timer should clear after you power cycle the camera. The timer is not the default setting, so it reverts.

Thank you.

I cant figure out how to set the self timer on this camera


Hi,

If you press the left < button on the camera before you take a picture you will have the option to set the self-timer. The options that you can choose are: 1. Single shot; 2. Continuous shot; 3. Self-timer (10 sec) / Remote control; 4. Self-timer (2 sec); 5. Self-timer (10 sec): Continuous (2 - 10 shots).

Hope this helps!

Set the timer


  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.

-and then you will see that there will an icon showing in the left side part of the screen of the camera.

3. When you press the SHUTTER button, the picture will be taken after the
specified time has elapsed.
