My dad bought me a Z3 for my birthday as the guy at the store said it would be a good camera to start with. So far i find it great but theres one problem, I cant figuire out how to use the self-timer. I've looked through the manual a couple of times and the section didn't help. Could anyone please tell me a step by step guide to using the self-timer? I would greatly appreciate it.

Re: Dimage Z3 self-timer
It is in the Drive mode, the options are single shot, continuous, bracket, and self timer. It is not very clear in the manual but it is on the 1st menu page, page 46. Navigate using the arrow button. The default is single shot.
When you set the camera to self timer, after taking the shot, it will return to the previous mode, ie. single shot or continuous.
If you always use the self timer, you can reprogram the flash mode button to set the drive mode without going to the menu, page 65 of the manual.

This is a symptom commonly listed for DiMAGE cameras listed on EBay for 'parts only'. Dropping the camera I had caused the same problem and carefully 'smacking' the camera once again did solve the problem but that may have been dumb luck. Sorry but it is a service task that may cost more than the camera.
this camera with firmware below 1.03 has a problem with 2gb cards , i recommend 1 gb cards ( i have tried many until now it never stopt working ..so yes go back to where you bought the card (not accidentaly switched the white write protect switch ?? )
I don't think there's any problem. Simply, a longer zoom means that - without a faster shutter speed - there is an increased probability for camera shake. Additionally, cameras usually struggle with focus in longer zoom. To be sure that there isn't a fault, do this:
1) Place the camera on a tripod or other sturdy surface 2) For additional stability (and to avoid camera shake due to shutter button movement), select the self-timer 3) Focus and take the shot. If it's still blurry, then yeah, there's a problem
