Self timer with continuous shots?

hello everyone, new to this forum and new to the k-x. does anyone know if k-x has continuous shots when in self timer mode? i only see the option to select either 2s or 12s.

According to p.136 of the K-x user manual, you can choose either continuous shooting or self timer, but not both at the same time.

What sort of shots are you trying to achieve? Someone here might be able to suggest an alternative method.
