To use self-timer:
  1. Slide self-timer switch away from operating button. Red mark will appear.
  2. After focusing and metering for main subject, close eyepiece shutter.
  3. Press operating button all the way down. During the ten-second countdown to shutter release, the self-timer LED blinks slowly for 8 sec., then rapidly for 1 sec., and remains on for the last second. For simultaneous audible beeping, set main switch to ON position.

To cancel operation:
If you have started the self-timer and wish to cancel it before the shutter releases, slide self-timer switch toward operating button.

After using the self-timer, be sure to turn it off by sliding self-timer switch towards operating button.

Tripod mounting
For maximum sharpness when exposure times are too long for hand-held photos, mount camera on a tripod using the socket on camera bottom. The optional Remote Cord RC-1000L or RC-1000S can be used to release the shutter without shaking camera.
