There is a button on the back of the camera for the self timer. Below the function button is a clock symbol. press this to activate the self timer and select the option for how much time to delay the shot. Page 18 of the basic guide ( gives the full instructions. Note that the self timer cannot be used in all modes. See page 144 in the advanced user guide (


Hope this helps you.
