The self-timer

Most people have used a self-timer on a camera. You balance the camera on a rock or something and you point it at your friends, and then you set it off and run back and try to get in the frame and look natural before the camera takes a picture. It works the same way on your digital camera. The self-timer control is located on the same button as the Continuous mode. If I pop this open, I get my Drive mode menu. So here is Single shot which is where we normally are. Here is Continuous mode which we've already looked at. Then there is a 10-second Self-timer. There are actually three Self-timers. We're going to look at this one first.

I'm going to select that. Now remember to select it, I have to hit the SET button to make it take, and now I'm in Self-timer mode which I can see right there. When I press the Shutter button, the light on the front of the camera starts flashing. So this is when I would be running around to try and get in front of the camera and get some kind of reason...
