These digital cameras are very complicated. Mostly I just leave it on auto and hope for the best. But at times I have a play with it. Some time ago, I had a look at the delayed shutter facility. It seemed to be only for two seconds, not nearly enough to compose oneself for a nice pic of oneself to post on one's blog. Today I had another proper look at it and it has a ten second delay as well. Ten pictures later, I have concluded that I needed to be photographed through some thick muslin, so don't expect a face pic of me soon. Well just until I adjust my brain to how old and ugly I am.
