Press the Function button and scroll down to the Drive Mode (3rd icon down on left side of LCD). Use the left or right button to select the self timer delay (2, 10 or custom). Press Function again and you're ready. (Remember to set back to single shot when you're done!)

I am trying to set the self timer, can anyone help me with that?


Self timer is not available in AUTO mode.
Please check the other options ( As I do not remember the other right now)
Select the other options available (eg: Tv,Av etc) and hit function key and scroll down.
In the self timer it self you can also mention how many shots you want to take.
Also you can see teh manual. In the last pages it is being under teh section Self timer.

  • My Colors (Off, vivid, neutral, sepia, black & white, custom color) - see below
  • Flash compensation (-2EV to +2EV in 1/3EV increments) + flash output (1/3, 2/3, full) - this last item is only available in manual mode
