Nex-3N self timer buggy?

I just bought a Nex-3N, and when I try to use to 10 sec self-timer, a lot of times it does not work. When I change it to the 2 sec timer it works. I suspect this maybe a firmware issue as the buttons seem to work for other options. Sometimes turning it off and on, seems to reset it so it works again. Has anyone else experienced this? Any way to fix this? I hate to return the camera as it works well otherwise.

Re: Nex-3N self timer buggy?

Are you using the self-timer feature with the LCD screen tilted to 180 degrees or is it folded into the camera?


Please make sure that the shutter button is pressed fully down in order to start the shooting. Also, the self-timer feature will not work in the following settings / modes:

  • [Hand-held Twilight] [Anti Motion Blur] in [Scene Selection]
  • [Sweep Panorama]
  • [Smile Shutter]
  • [Auto HDR]
  • [Soft Focus], [HDR Painting], [Rich-tone Mono.], [Miniature] in [Picture Effect]
  • [Self-portrait Self-timer] is set to [On] and the camera is ready to take a self-portrait
