There is a small round pushbutton on the top of the camera marked with a clock icon. Pressing this button engages self-timer mode. When the camera is in this mode pressing the shutter release starts a 10 second countdown. The camera will beep during the countdown if the beeper is enabled and the top-deck LCD displays the number of seconds left. Two seconds before the shot the camera will beep faster and the red-eye reduction lamp on the front of the camera will flash to warn you that the photo is about to be taken. You can cancel the timer at any point by switching the camera to another mode (or turning it off) before the picture is shot.

How do I use the self timer on my Pentax K-x?


You aren't supposed to leave the timer cocked for long periods, probably because it could wear out the timer spring (similar to the reason you aren't supposed to store the camera for long priods with the shutter cocked).


I thought that you set the timer by rotating the timer lever 90 degrees or more counter clockwise (when looking at the front of the camera). The further you rotate the timer, the longer it will run. Moving the timer lever exposes the start lever underneath the timer. Pulling the timer lever counter clockwise (it starts out pointed straight up) will start the timer, and putting the start lever back in it's original position will stop the timer.


Once the timer is stopped it is possible to take a picture by releasing the shutter normally, the timer can be restarted, or the timer can be reset for a longer time. After the timer is stopped it should be restarted and allowed to count down to zero before the camera is stored. I'm almost certain that the timer can only fire the camera if the shutter is already cocked, so it is safe to release the timer and let it run down any time that the camera is not cocked.
Good luck and do rate the solution if helped

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

How do I set the self timer on my cannon a560 camera?


Press the self-timer button to cycle through self-timer settings. The rectangle indicates normal shooting, the clock indicates self-timer. Depending on the shooting mode, you may also see overlapped rectangles for continuous shooting.

To change the delay time, select [Self-timer] from the Recording menu.

The self-timer button is the same as the down-arrow on the circular multi-selector, marked with a clock.

Trying to figure out how to use the timer on my Nikon Coolpix S570


Press the self-timer button (left of OK).

Press up or down to choose either two second or ten second delay.

Frame the picture and press the shutter release halfway to set focus and exposure.

Press the shutter button the rest of the way. The self-timer starts, the remaining number of seconds shows on the display, and the self-timer lamp blinks.

After the picture is taken, the self-timer reverts to OFF.

To cancel the self-timer, press the shutter release button again.

Fuller details can be found in the manual under "Taking Pictures with the Self-timer."

Set the timer


  1. Place your camera on a tripod and prepare your scene.
  2. While in a shooting mode, press the timer button (the bottom button in the circle set on of the back of the camera). Press it repeatedly. It will cycle through self-timer and remote-control. On the screen, a Timer will appear for the self-timer and a little Remote with a lightning bolt will appear for the remote-control. Stop pressing the button when the timer appears, pause for 3 seconds to allow the camera to confirm the setting the icon will disappear.
  3. These instructions are described on Pg 55 of the manual, but I will repeat them in simplified form in case you don't have the manual.
  4. Once the timer setting is set, press the shutter-release button fully. If you press it half-way it will focus and lock the exposure, then press it fully.
  5. The self timer/remote control lamp will light for 10 seconds. Get in position in the scene, after the 10 seconds the light will begin blinking. After 2 more seconds, the picture is taken.
  6. To cancel the timer mode, press the Timer button again; however the timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.
It is important in all timer scene shots with cameras, don't stand directly in front of the camera because this will then focus on you instead of the scene.

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 have a Samsung d73 Digimax and would like to know whether this has a self-timer function and if so, how does one use it?


No problem! Like all Samsung Digimax cameras, the self-timer is located by pressing the round navigation key once to the right/East/3 o'clock (it has a picture of a clock engraved on it). Pressing once gives a 10 second timer, twice gives a 25 second timer and the third press gives a multiple-burst self-timer whilst the fourth press will de-activate all timer functions. After selecting the appropriate self timer, depress the shutter button to activate.
I hope that this helps!
