Digital Photography - Use Your Built-In Timer For Slow Shutter Speeds
Image blur is often the result of slow shutter speeds. To avoid the problem, a traditional photographer uses a cable release. However, most digital cameras have no means of attaching a cable release for that purpose. A simple workaround is to use your built-in timer. Allowing the camera to settle for the 5 or 10 seconds of delay usually prevents the annoying problem of blur.
