If i put my camra on self timer win i print the pictures will the time show up on the pictures

The time it took the picture? You want to know if the camera will show the time it took the picture using the self timer?

My answer is Yes and No.

Do you have your camera set to showing the date and time on the pictures now? If you do, then using the self timer would not change anything.

If you do have it set to showing on the picture and you don't want the date and time to show then change the setting on the menu function of the camera and turn this option off.

If you do not already have the camera set to show the date and time, using the self timer option is not going to make it suddenly appear.

Trying to figure out how to use the timer on my Nikon Coolpix S570

Press the self-timer button (left of OK).

Press up or down to choose either two second or ten second delay.

Frame the picture and press the shutter release halfway to set focus and exposure.

Press the shutter button the rest of the way. The self-timer starts, the remaining number of seconds shows on the display, and the self-timer lamp blinks.

After the picture is taken, the self-timer reverts to OFF.

To cancel the self-timer, press the shutter release button again.

Fuller details can be found in the manual under "Taking Pictures with the Self-timer."

Describe how to use the self timer on the samsung S830 digital camera

Make sure you're in a recording mode other than VOICE.

Press the Self-Timer button (right button) until the display shows the desired mode. Your choices are 10-second mode (the camera takes a picture ten seconds after you press the shutter button), 2-second mode (the camera takes a picture two seconds after you press the shutter button), and Double-self-timer (the camera takes a picture ten seconds after you press the shutter button, then takes another two seconds later).

You can cancel the self-timer mode by pressing the Self-Timer button again.

The 10-second mode allows you to run back for a group picture. The 2-second mode is useful when you want to take a picture without fear of camera shake; simply place the camera on a steady support such as a tripod. The Double mode increases the chances of getting a picture with everybody's eyes open.

Does camera have timer

Putting Yourself in the Picture The Self Timer creates a 10-second delay between the time you press the Shutter button and the time the picture is taken. 1 Place the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod. 2 In any Still mode, press the Self Timer button. The Self Timer icon appears in the status area. 3 Compose the scene. Then press the Shutter button half-way and hold to set the exposure and focus, then press the rest of the way down. Move so that you are in the scene. The Self Timer light blinks slowly for 8 seconds (then quickly for 2 seconds) before the picture is taken. The camera "clicks" when the picture is captured. To turn off the shutter sound, see page 64. The Self Timer turns off after you take the picture or if you change modes. To cancel the Self Timer before the picture is taken, press the Self Timer button. (The Self Timer setting remains active.) To turn off the Self Timer, press the Self Timer button twice.

I have a Samsung d73 Digimax and would like to know whether this has a self-timer function and if so, how does one use it?

No problem! Like all Samsung Digimax cameras, the self-timer is located by pressing the round navigation key once to the right/East/3 o'clock (it has a picture of a clock engraved on it). Pressing once gives a 10 second timer, twice gives a 25 second timer and the third press gives a multiple-burst self-timer whilst the fourth press will de-activate all timer functions. After selecting the appropriate self timer, depress the shutter button to activate.
I hope that this helps!

I wanna take a picture but i dont know how to make the camara wait 10 sec before it takes the picture


Self-timer shooting:

This function lets you take pictures using the self-timer.
Fix the camera securely on a tripod for self-timer shooting. This function is useful for taking
pictures when you want to be included in the photograph.

1 Select [ON], and press Z.
2 Press the shutter button fully to
take the picture.
• Pressing the shutter button halfway
locks the focus and exposure.
• The self-timer lamp lights for
approximately 10 seconds, then starts
blinking. After blinking for approximately
2 seconds, the picture is taken.
• To stop shooting while in n mode,
press the shutter button fully again.
• To cancel the self-timer, press Z.
• The self-timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.

• If sequential shooting is attempted in self-timer mode, the camera shoots 5
frames at most regardless of the setting.

Hope my info fixes your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,

Can't find my manual. How do I take a picture of myself? How do I delay the shutter in order to run around and be in the picture?

Hey drathy,
Without knowing what camera you are using I can't give you specific directions, but what you are looking for is the self-timer function. You can usually change how long the self-timer delays the shutter for in you menu. What you do is set the self-timer and press the shutter button, and then you run around to get into the image. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
