Switch top dial to "P" or some other mode, but not "AUTO"
Press FUNC then scroll down two steps to "Drive Mode"
Then press right from single shot, to multi-shot to 10 second count-down.
Then compose the shot, press the photo shoot button and listen for the countdown beep from 10 seconds.
All done.

I think your camera needs to be reset.

Please try the following steps.

1. Turn on the camera.

2. Enter settings.

3. Reset your camera to manufacturer settings.

4. Try to take picture with self timer.

I hope it is helpful.

Want to shoot a timed pictures ie, a pic of myself and my sister together and me setting the camera on a timer and getting into the pic...what do I do? Don't have manual with me. I have a Canon EOS 40D


Did you know there are two firmware updates available for your camera? For a timer picture, here are the instructions: 1Press the <o> button. (
9)
2Select either <j> or <l>.
Look at the LCD panel and turn the
<5> dial to select <j> or <l>.
j:10-sec. self-timer
l:2-sec. self-timerN
3Take the picture.
Focus the subject and press the
shutter button completely.
The picture will be taken after the
self-timer delay elapses.
You can check the self-timer
operation with the self-timer lamp,
beeper, and countdown display (in
seconds) on the LCD panel.
Two seconds before the picture is
taken, the self-timer lamp will stay on
and the beeper will sound faster.
Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to
start the self-timer. Doing so will throw off the focus.

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.

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!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Setting the camera timer


Hi there,
by the way in setting the timer for your camera here is what you are going to do...

-turn the camera on
-set the camera in recording
-press the Right Button beside the menu button (the incomplete circle)
-and then you will see that there will an icon showing in the left side part of the screen of the camera.

Selecting the self-timer
1. Rotate the MODE DIAL to select a RECORDING mode with the exception of VOICE RECORDING mode.
2. Press the SELF-TIMER button until the desired mode indicator displays on the LCD monitor.
A 10 second, 2 second or double self-timer icon appears on the LCD monitor. In Movie Clip mode, only the 10-second self-timer will work.
•2SEC self-timer (icon of incomplete circle with 2S)
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an interval of 2 seconds before the image is
taken.
•10SEC self-timer (incomplete circle)
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an interval of 10 seconds before the image is taken.
•Double self-timer (double incomplete circle)
: A picture will be taken after about 10 seconds and 2 seconds later a second picture will be taken. When using the flash, the 2-second self-timer may be delayed for longer than 2 seconds depending on the flash charge time.
3. When you press the SHUTTER button, the picture will be taken after the
specified time has elapsed.
