to choose a setting:
10 seconds—A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get
into the scene).
2 seconds—A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, shutter
release on a tripod).
2 shot—The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is
taken 8 seconds later.
3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down.
The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay.
Use the same procedure to take a 2- or 10-second self-timer video, but press the
Shutter button completely down.
