Does this camera have a auto timer

By clicking the Menu button, you'll see the shooting menu, sort of a red/pink color, with an icon at the top that resembles a camera. The 4th option is Self-timer, which you can set to a 10 or 2 second delay. The next time you press the shutter release to take a picture, the camera will wait that long before taking the photo.

I have a canon powershot A70. Pictures have a pink tint to them.

Contact Canon at 1-800-828-4040 and they will fix it.

I had a similar problem and it turns out to be a known problem with the CCD chip in the camara. Contact Canon and they will give you instructions to return the Camera including shipping labels. They will cover the cost of the repair regardless of the warrantee status and they are quick. You pay shipping one way.

The only issue i have is that the problem has returned a year later and I have to send it back. But I calledCanon and they said they would cover it.
