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

Using the self-timer
Use the self-timer when you want to be included in a picture, or to ensure a steady
Shutter button press. Place the camera on a tripod or flat surface.
1 In any picture-taking mode, press the Info button to turn on the shortcut icons.
2 Press to highlight the self-timer icon. Press to choose a setting:
10 seconds- A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time
to get into the scene).
2 seconds- A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, shutter
release on a tripod).
2 shot- The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture
is taken 8 seconds later.
3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down.
The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay.
Use the same procedure to take a 2- or 10-second self-timer video, but press the
Shutter button completely down.

I can't find my selftimer button on nikon d60. I an trying to take a picture of myself but I cannot find the button or make the one I thought work


Press the Info button to get the shooting info on the display screen. Navigate to and select the Shooting Mode item. Select the Self-timer (the icon looks somewhat like a clock with a single hand). Now, when you press the shutter button, the shutter will release after the delay. The length of the delay can be set via a menu option. The usual things about autofocus and exposure metering apply.

How do I set a shutter delay on a cx4230 camera?


It is easiest to link you to your camera manual.

Click on:

Kodak CX4230 Manual

Go to page 20 in the manual for instructions.

While you have it open, save a copy to your computer for future reference.

Here it is if you don't want to do that:

In Capture mode, press the Menu button.

Highlight Self Timer , then press the Select button.

Highlight On, then press the Select button.

Press the Menu button to turn off the menu screen.

Place the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod.

Press the shutter button completely down to take the picture.

The red Self Timer light turns on for 8 seconds, then blinks for 2 seconds. The picture is taken.

All white pic is shown on LCD when used in Manual Mode with delayed shutter timer


You are massively overexposing the picture. Manual mode means you have to set the exposure manually. You need to adjust the settings so that the light meter reads somewhere around the zero mark.

M mode is most useful for flash photography where you want a certain level of ambient illumination in the picture as well.

If you want some control over the camera but don't want to worry about exposure too much, use A and S modes. The manual will explain all of these modes.

Need to take an auto time delay picture, left manual at home.........


The Rebel XT (EOS-350) manual states that turning on the selftimer is done by:

  1. Pressing the icon button that looks like a stopwatch
  2. Frame up your subject
  3. Press the shutter button and then wait 10 seconds for the picture to be taken.
Notes: Do not stand in front of the camera while you press the shutter button. Tripod is the best tool to use in self timer situations.

Very long shutter release delay


This is weird, usually shutter delays are caused because camera is trying to focus first, it really shouldn't happen after pre-focus. do you have a manual focus mode? if you do, try it and see if it works. if you dont, I would still suspect it some kind of focusing problem, but unfortunalty i have no idea how you can fix it yourself.

Shutter delay


If you have installed optional expanded memory, you may notice a delay between the time you press the shutter button and when the camera beeps. You can reduce this delay by pressing the button down halfway, holding it as long as necessary, and then pressing it down the rest of the way when you are ready to take the picture. The reason for this two-step shutter is to save battery power. After a picture is taken, compressed, and written to memory, the Sparc CPU shuts down to save the battery's power. When the shutter button is pressed halfway, the Sparc wakes up and stays in the ready state until the user presses the shutter button the rest of the way. Besides the delay in waking the Sparc, there is a variable delay which occurs prior to the Sparc being in the ready state. This delay is dependent on the amount of free flash memory.
