Taking Pictures with the Self-timer

The self-timer is useful for self-portraits or reducing the effects of camera shake 
that occur when the shutter-release button is pressed.

When using the self-timer, pictures are taken 10 seconds after the shutter-release 
button is pressed. When using the self-timer, use of a tripod is recommended.

1

Press n (self-timer) on the multi selector.

The self-timer menu is displayed.

2

Press the multi selector H or I to select ON 
and press the k button.

The self-timer icon (

n 10) is displayed.

If a setting is not applied by pressing the 

k button 

within a few seconds, the selection will be cancelled.

3

Frame the picture and press the 
shutter-release button halfway.

Focus and exposure will be set.

4

Press the shutter-release button the 
rest of the way down.

The self-timer starts and the number of seconds 
remaining until the shutter is released is 
displayed in the monitor. The self-timer lamp 
blinks while the timer is counting down. About 
one second before the shutter is released, the 
lamp stops blinking and glows steadily.

When the shutter is released, the self-timer will 
be set to OFF.

To stop the timer before a picture is taken, press 
the shutter-release button again.
