It is on the AF/Drive button. Press the button and then rotate the quick wheel to scroll through the options.

Alternatively, press the quick control joystick or info button on the back which (on mine at least) brings up the options on the main screen. You then use the quick control joystick to highlight shutter/drive option, press select and scroll accordingly with the quick wheel..

Choose a mode other than one of the self-timer modes.

Sorry for the late replies on this. I posted from my cell and coverage was spotty. It did work.

I really appreciate the help. Thank you all

The timer is a feature I never use. I was not even sure how I turned it on, so when I snapped a shot and 10 seconds later the shutter clicked, panic ensued, which is never good.
