Quick question about the S95 self-timer option. I know there is the option to set # of seconds between shots and the number of shots to take. I was hoping to use that option to do a time-lapse, but I was wondering whether the camera will have the flashing red light countdown like typical camera would on a timer. I don't have the camera on me right now so I can't really test it out for myself and was hoping someone could answer it for me.

Thanks

Testing on my S95 right now.....

yup, there's a flashing countdown light with the timer.

BTW, does anyone know how to change the seconds # in the timer options. The main ring around the lens changes the # of shots but I can't figure out how to change the # of seconds number. I must have tried every possible button & dial but nothing changes it. :confused:

On mine the main lens ring works the seconds and the rocker works the number of shots. Try hitting the rocker <>

Gah! Finally figured it out! Had to press 'left-right' on the rear control dial. I swear I must have hit every possible button, dial combination except that one. :p

Has anyone used a cable release for their s95 to keep images steady?
