I have the coolpix s33. On the top of the view screen there is a flashing red square with a clock What is this representing and how do I remove it


The camera has a 10 second self timer. usually when you want to use it.. It only works for one image so you have to set it up for self timer again. On the back you may be able to set the camera to use the self timer. The only ICON I know of in most cameras that has a clock is the self timer.

Say camera is in Tripod and you want to take a group shot and YOU want to be in the photo. You set up and put on Self Timer. You press the shutter and it will take 10 seconds before taking the photo... Enough time for YOU to get int he shot.

Red flashing clock in screen


Do you have the self-timer turned on? You could go into the camera menu and find "reset" to return to default settings.

My Samsung L100 Camera doesn't know how to flash once!


Most cameras flash twice; the first one is for setting the exposure, the second one is for real. About the best you can do is warn your targets that the camera is going to flash twice.

Yes, the L100 has a self-timer. Press Right on the selector (the clock icon) until the desired mode indicator appears on the display. Your choices are 10-second delay, 2-second delay, double self-timer, and motion timer.

The self-timer is described on pages 29-30 in my copy of the manual.

Red flashing clock in right hand side of LCD


Sounds like you have the self-timer turned on. If you press the shutter button and stand in front of the camera, it should take a picture of you.

I can not set the self timer. In the manual it says hit menue button go to "self timer" select the secons and shot hit "set" hit menu, hit shutter button fully. When I do this the Timer lamp doesn't...


The self timer will not work in the "Easy" mode (icon with a heart in it) or in movie mode. According to the chart in the back of the manual, the self timer should work with all other modes.

Self timer for the nikon n55


Press the self-timer button just to the right of the LCD panel and confirm that the self-timer icon appears. Press the shutter release halfway to focus and meter. Press the shutter the rest of the way to activate.To cancel, either turn the camera off or press the self-timer button until the self-timer icon disappears.

Flash is delayed


You have switched the self-timer on!

Press the button to the right of the displays just under the AV button. You need to ensure the display does not show the self-timer icon, which looks a bit like a second hand sweeping around a clock (with a dot at the 12 position).

That should do it.

Can't turn the flash off


Hi The product you have given has Built-in flash with Auto, Forced on, Red-eye on, and forced off (Red-eye reduction On or Off).
There is a 1 1/8" diameter lens with a built-in lens cover that automatically opens and closes when the on/off button is pressed. Above the lens is the viewfinder window, flash and tiny (almost unnoticeable) microphone. There is also a small circle that has three functions: the autofocus assist beam, red-eye reduction lamp, self-timer lamp. A wrist strap comes with the camera and attaches through a slot on the front of the camera near the side.
To the right of those buttons is the four-way controller, used for menu navigation as well as:
  • Up - Metering (Evaluative, center-weighted, spot)
  • Down - Drive (Single-shot, continuous, self-timer)
  • Left - Focus (Auto, macro, infinity)
  • Right - Flash (Auto w/redeye reduction, auto, flash on w/redeye reduction, flash on, flash off)

: Pressing the shutter button will allow an interval of 10 seconds before the image is taken.

3. When you press the SHUTTER button, the picture will be taken after the
specified time has elapsed.
