Trying to figure out how to use the timer on my Nikon Coolpix S570

Answers :

Press the self-timer button (left of OK).

Press up or down to choose either two second or ten second delay.

Frame the picture and press the shutter release halfway to set focus and exposure.

Press the shutter button the rest of the way. The self-timer starts, the remaining number of seconds shows on the display, and the self-timer lamp blinks.

After the picture is taken, the self-timer reverts to OFF.

To cancel the self-timer, press the shutter release button again.

Fuller details can be found in the manual under "Taking Pictures with the Self-timer."

Hi, I am trying to use the self timer function on my Nikon D90 but it doesn't seem to work. I have checked on many sites how to use it, but whenever I press the self timer button and turn the roll left and right nothing happens. The option is fixed at shooting instantly and multiple shots. I tried in all camera modes, but still cannot change the option. What am I doing wrong?

The button for this is on the right, the second one from the rear and it has multiple squares on it for a symbol. Pressing and holding this button down then turning the rear dial should change the shutter release function. It cycles th ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

I have a Coolpix Nikon L1 and everything works fine with the camera except when I try to transfer the pictures over to the computer. It used to let me but I would still have to run them through other programs because it never automatically comes up like it used it. I have already tried going through the set-up menu on the camera and did everything it told me to and it still does not work. Any solutions?

Crash I greatly enjoyed the D70 until it suddenly stopped taking pictures. I got the dreaded ERR message. WE tried different batteries, lenses, cards, etc., but to no avail. This is a real bummer. I have used Nikons for 30 years. Currently, my F100 is also at Nikon. The back latch catches simply cracked and fell off! Plastic.A couple of years ago, the self-timer stopped working and Nikon had to replace the software circuits. (The warranty had run out.)

The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Che ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-50mm Lens

Battery charger Hi all - dumb question maybe...I just purchased a second-hand Coolpix 5400 from a camera shop, with accessories but without the original box or power cord for the MH-53 battery charger. I am trying to get the battery charger to work, but to no avail. I already had a couple of figure-of-eight power cords, so I tried to use those with the charger. But the charger appears dead, the charge light is not lighting up with either of them. Do I need a proprietary or a specially-rate

I have a Nikon CoolPix 4300 that is about 5 years old. I mostly use it in the Macro mode for close-up photos of the sewing thimbles I sell on eBay.

I cannot figure out how to remove the battery from the Nikon S570; when I move the orange piece to the side, my finger keeps the battery pressed into place, and if I attempt to use a tool to move the piece, the battery still fits so snug that it does not come loose enough for me to grab.
