j Using the Self-timer
With <q>, the interval between the multiple shots may be prolonged
depending on the shooting functions settings such as the image-
recording quality or flash.
If you do not look through the viewfinder when you press the shutter
button, attach the eyepiece cover (p.367). If stray light enters the
viewfinder when the picture is taken, it may throw off the exposure.

object at the same distance as where you will stand.
