The Canon g10 has a unique mode in addition to its regular self timer mode called FaceSelf-Timer. I really like this mode and use it a lot when I’m not shooting with my pro digital camera. It really is a crowd pleaser! I show off using it all the time.
In this special mode the timer will wait until your in front of the camera to take the picture! And if you have several people for the picture it will wait until one new face enters into the group to take the picture 2 seconds later! Pretty cool I think!
Here is a self portrait I took of myself after jogging at a local park. I just set the camera on a study ledge of a building and set the timer and as soon as I got in front of the camera it took the picture! Not bad for a point and shoot camera!!
