To use self-timer:
Slide self-timer switch away from operating button. Red mark will appear.
After focusing and metering for main subject, close eyepiece shutter.
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.
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.
- Do not overtighten tripod screw when attaching the camera to tripod.
- Mounting screw should not be longer than 5.4mm (1/4 in.).
