Make sure you use the camera in manual mode or lock the aperature/shutterl speed so the shots will come out the same exposure. Especially if you are taking a panorama of a skyline or the shots closer to a light source (sun) are going to have a darker sky.

If you look in your user manual (http://support-au.canon.com.au/EN/search?v%3aproject=ABS-EN&v%3afile=viv_GsJPAL&v%3astate=root%7croot&opener=full-window&url=http%3a%2f%2fsupport-au.canon.com.au%2fcontents%2fAU%2fEN%2f0900126701.html&rid=Ndoc0&v%3aframe=redirect&&sid=6) You can see the 2/10 second timer is found on page 84 of 218. It tells you exactly what function to select to achieve these 2 options.

It depends on your camera. Is it equipped with this function? Or you can take your photo normally, then use a computer program (like photoshop) to join them afterwards.

There is a delay between pressing button and photo being taken with my samsung s7000. The delay means that the subject (child) is out of view by the time the photo is taken.


Hi Susan, and welcome to FixYa-
I have had the exact problem that you are describing, albeit a different make and model of camera. Here's how I solved my issue:
I grabbed the nearest heavy object and smashed the camera....
No, but seriously, try this:
The S700 has the standard "Scene Selector" knob on the top. Make sure that this is NOT pointed toward (set to) the "Self Timer" option. The icon for this, on the camera's body, looks similar to the "Auto" setting icon.
The S700 has 3 timer modes: a 10 second delay, 2 second delay and a "Double" mode wherein the camera waits 10 seconds, takes one picture then, after an additional 2 second delay, will take a second picture. The delay must be selected by the user and will appear in your LCD viewing screen. Prior to taking a test picture, look in the display screen to see if any numbers appear. If you see any, you know that the camera is in the Self Timer mode. Simply rotate the button on top of the camera to the "Auto" icon and you'll be all set.
Good luck, and let us know how you go!

I can't find the self timer on my fuji finepix av camera


Press cursor-down (marked with a one-handed clock), then choose the desired delay. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

Full details are in the "Using the Self-Timer" section of the manual (page 31 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one at

Camera is very slow to take photo, pics are not clear


These types of cameras do have a delay in the shutter release. It is normal for about a half second delay especially when using flash. Also make sure your batteries are fully charged.

How do i set my camera to take a photo by it self after a few seconds


You want to set the Self-Timer ... to delay the shot, say, by 2, 5, 10 (or a specified number of) seconds, assuming your camera (model) has that feature/capability. Which camera (model) do you have ?

How to take my photo on delayed timer? Have been through the settings menu and cannot find a solution.


Press cursor-down (marked with a one-handed clock) to cycle through the different self-timer modes. Your choices are off, two-second delay, and ten-second delay. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button.

EOS 30D is slow to fire.


Are you sure you aren't in the delay setting in drive mode? This camera has 2 delay settings, one for 2 seconds between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo, and one with 10 seconds delay - often used when you want to be in the photo (e.g. self-portrait or group photo).

If you aren't in the delay mode, then I need to know more about your settings. What shooting mode are you using? What type of photo are you trying to take (portrait, landscape, sports)? Are you shooting indoors, outdoors, bright sunlight, overcast, etc.?

Delay Between Flash and Taking Photo


I also have this problem on a Canon A85. For some reason setting the camera to landscape allows the shutter and flash to work together properly.
