does the self timer work with manual focus? ... I'm considering an s3 but the owners manual seems to indicate that self timer workswith AF only.

thanks,

mike

yes ... you would think just that.

but page 51 of the S3 manual states "the self timer does not operate in situations where the camera shutter is disabled, such as when the focus is not set in AF-S mode"

anyone with actual S3 experience know this ??

cheers,

mike

Hello,

Yes you can use the self timer on the S3 whilst using manual focus. Just tried it and it works fine.
