Focus & exposure during self takes with timer. Oh yeh, flip screen too

Im looking for a camera for my fishing trips.

I need something that fits the following criteria:

: Flip screen so i can do self takes.

: Customisable timer with increments up to 30 secs, taking a minimum of 10 shots.

: Size needs to be no bigger than: 12cm x 9cm x 5cm.

I have some questions about the custom timer.

Do any camera's continue to adjust their focus on the nearest object in the custom timer mode?

For example: While im behind the camera, do i need to focus it on the area i will be positioned for the photo?

And after that, if im in frame will the camera continue to focus if i move forwards or backwards during custom timer?

Will the exposure be recalculated during the custom timer?

For example, While im behind the camera, the exposure will be different to when im in in front of the camera, as i will be blocking the sky.

Smile feature. Is there a feature where i could give some sort of signal to trigger the camera a few seconds later? If i didn't want to smile;)

Im looking for something along the lines of the Canon powershot G12.

Any advise will be greatly appreciated.



Canon PowerShot G12
