It is good to have lots of bells and whistles on a small camera. My Sony Cybershot has an auto timer function. You set it for 2 or 10 seconds and then run to the front of the camera. Presto, Eduardo -- a snapshot.
Sometimes you get funny results. Here's an "oops" from two years ago that I took when Ed and I were golfing up north. Too much grass, heads missing -- the camera sees what it sees and takes a photo!
