On page 37 of the basic manual, available as a download from the canon website, it says that if you click on the function menu button. That is the button on the back of your camera in the circle. It is between the lightning bolt and the flower. If you press that you will see at the bottom of your screen the option to change you self timer to 2 seconds, 10 seconds or C = a customized time you can set yourself.

Good luck
