Press to choose a Self-timer setting:
2 Seconds - A picture is taken after a 2-second delay.
10 Seconds - A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get into the scene).
2 Picture Timer - The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later.
Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down.The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay.
