Where is the self timer on the c-3000 digital camera


try to check this path: Press the Menu button, then press the top/bottom arrows on the Jog dial to select DRIVE. Press the right arrow and press the top/bottom arrows to select. Press the left arrow on the Jog dial to confirm the setting. If you take a
picture without pressing the OK button, the setting will be valid until the Menu is canceled. To take a picture using the selftimer, when the shutter is released, the Selftimer/Remote control signal lights for
approx. 10 seconds then blinks for approx. 2 seconds before the picture is taken. To stop the activated selftimer, press the Menu button.

I need to know how to put self timer on an L100 Samsung Camera


There is the oclock icon on the round thing that called the dial control. The flash, flower, oclock, etc icons are on the dial control. The selftime icon looks like a oclock face.
Hit it one or more than one times and the icon will appear on LCD, so your done.
Should set the selftime at higher ( 10 second some like that ) that for you have time to be in the picture.

How to use selftimer on Samsung S630


Hey hpnotiq_babe,
Directions on how to set the self timer on this camera are on page 27 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I have copied the instructions on how to set the self timer on your camera below. I hope this helps!

● 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 ( )
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an
interval of 2 seconds before the image is
taken.
•10SEC self-timer ( )
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an
interval of 10 seconds before the image is taken.
•Double self-timer ( )
: 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.

Selftimers


On page 37 of the basic manual, available as a download from the canon website, it says that if you click on the function menu button. That is the button on the back of your camera in the circle. It is between the lightning bolt and the flower. If you press that you will see at the bottom of your screen the option to change you self timer to 2 seconds, 10 seconds or C = a customized time you can set yourself.

Good luck
