    Many thanks for the feedback.


    It would be difficult to ascertain the cost of repairs without actually seeing the camera. We would recommend that you refer the servicing to a qualified repair technician or to a Fuji authorized service center. If your camera is still under warranty, the servicing will be done free of cost.

    Thanks once again.

Press cursor-right (marked with a one-handed clock) to cycle through the self-timer/burst settings.

No 'ON' indicator in the self timer menu


The first clock sets the self-timer for a ten-second delay, the second for a two-second delay. Select the one you want to set the self-timer. Start the self-timer by pressing the shutter release button as usual.

Full details are in the "Self-Timer Photography" section of the manual (page 60 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download a copy here.

HI, i HAVE JUST RECEIVED AN SX130 IS AS A GIFT BUT I CANNOT FIND IN THE MANUAL ANYTHING ABOUT THE SELF TIMER. I CANNOT WORK OUT HOW TO SET IT. CAN YOU GIVE ME DIRECTION PLEASE? THANK YOU V....


Press the Down arrow (from the buttons around the Func./Set button. Either turn the ring or use the up/down arrows to select the clock icon with 10 in it. Press the Func./Set button. Press the shutter button halfway to get the camera to focus on the subject as you normally would. Then press the shutter button fully. The lamp will blink and the timer sound will play. When there are two seconds left before the camera takes the picture, the lamp and timer sound will speed up. The lamp stays lit when the flash goes off.The Canon self-timer basic settings are on page 57 in the pdf of user's guide. Direct link is: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/5/0300003855/04/PSSX130IS_CUG_EN_03.pdf . Page 63 has the details for using a blink as the trigger for a delayed shot (since I wear glasses I've never tried this type of timer). Page 64 has the directions for a "take picture after a new face enters the frame of the shot".

If the direct link doesn't work, start here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx130_is#BrochuresAndManuals .

I hope this helps.

How do I use the timer on my camera?


Select the timer mode (left arrow on the 4-curser-button). There are 3 settings in the order of 10sec timer; 2sec timer and timer off. Select either the 10 second timer (if you want to be in the picture) or the 2 second timer (more appropriate for long exposures when camera is on a tripod or similar to avoid camera shake when pressing the shutter button), then press the shutter button fully. The subject will then be automatically focused just before the picture is taken. There's a little light on the front of the camera (top right hand corner when you look at the camera) which should blink when self timer is activated. Pressing the menu button while timer is activated will cancel self timer mode.
In low light conditions this light may turn on brightly to double up as an AF assist light.

Hope that helps

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 can't find the self timer


Does it have a self timer - check the manual?
Does it work at all with a broken screen?
Time for a replacement - camera that is.

Hi there,

-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.

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.
