Default E-520 Timer???

Hi There...

I bought the olympus E-520 in August and I'm wondering, as I am unable to find an option like this in the manual... Is there a timer, or delay option??? We would like to take a family pic but one person needs to take it, so we were going to use a timer setting if that is available....

Time to get out the manual...the option for the timer is in the Drive mode option, and is easily found in the index under "Self-timer".

Another idea is to download a PDF copy of the manual and use Reader's find function to search for "self-timer".

Oh Great thanks... I was looking in the index under "timer and delay etc." but never thought of self-timer... Thanks a bunch... sorry to be a bother...

...downloading the manuals as Mike & Dustin suggest is worthwhile and a time saver; I too recommend everyone use the PDF file for quick finds, some features are sometimes buried deeper than is logical.
