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.

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.

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!

I am trying to set the self timer, can anyone help me with that?

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.

Self timer.

Press the Function button and scroll down to the Drive Mode (3rd icon down on left side of LCD). Use the left or right button to select the self timer delay (2, 10 or custom). Press Function again and you're ready. (Remember to set back to single shot when you're done!)
