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.

You can download the manual and more from the manufacturer's web site at

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 own a S3100 finepix camera & the self timer doesn't work so I could take pictures of myself when I am alone ! thanks a million John Hurst


I think your camera needs to be reset.

Please try the following steps.

1. Turn on the camera.

2. Enter settings.

3. Reset your camera to manufacturer settings.

4. Try to take picture with self timer.

I hope it is helpful.

Can't find how to use self-timer


Hi,

The manual I find is no use either.
The self timer button is on the back, the lowest button of all. The manual says you can set it to 2 seconds, 10 seconds or 10+2 seconds. But not how to use it.
Try pressing this button and see if the rear display changes to different times.
Then press the shutter button to try it out.

Hope this helps a bit.

I need help with setting the self timer on the Olympus Camedia c-700 camera. Can't figure how to do it with the menu. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks


the self timer usually works like this.
find the self timer setting and set it to 5 or 10 seconds.
then exit the menu and click the button that you normally press to take photo. the self timer will start automatically and the picture will be taken after 5 or 10 seconds (depending on what you set).
note that the self timer will be reset to off after this.

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!
Please rate!!
Cheers

There is a long delay taking pictures


Check to see if the self-timer is on. You can set the timer to 0, 2, or 10 sec. A 2 sec. delay will help to prevent blurry pictures. But setting the self-timer to 0 will take the picture as soon as you push the button.

Dimage Z3 self-timer


It is in the Drive mode, the options are single shot, continuous, bracket, and self timer. It is not very clear in the manual but it is on the 1st menu page, page 46. Navigate using the arrow button. The default is single shot. When you set the camera to self timer, after taking the shot, it will return to the previous mode, ie. single shot or continuous. If you always use the self timer, you can reprogram the flash mode button to set the drive mode without going to the menu, page 65 of the manual. If you do not have a manual, you can download here : http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/manuals/digital_cameras/dimage-z/index.html
