Tip & How-To about Nikon D300 Digital Camera with 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR DX Lens

Nikon D-300

I bought the first D-300 and I love it except for one thing. Sometimes when I take continues shoots the camera will freeze and will not execute the picture. The trick is to slightly move the focus of the lens and the camera for some reason will operate again. I have talked to several experts and they say that this is just part of the camera for what ever reason. Regardless I truly enjoyed all of my SLR and have fun with it. Going digital has been great! Good Luck

camera freezes , battery isn't flat , please wait whilst finishes recording message is sometimes displayed


Looks you have a slow memory card. Nothing wrong, when you use class 2, 4 or 6 in your camera, but it will slow things down sometimes. Not only for sports shooting, 5 or more frames a second, you need a fast card. For Video it is advised to chose fast cards to. Some cameras only manage one shot a second, and that will become word, when a slow memory card is in the camera.
I don't say this is the reason, I only say this could be the reason.

continuous mode


i think the frame rate is 1.3 frames per second.

Issue:
How do I set Continuous Shooting?
Solution: Setting Continuous Shooting mode PowerShot SD750 and SD1000.

Continuous Shooting In this mode, the camera shoots continuously while the shutter button is held down. Recording ceases when the shutter button is released. In addition, under the following conditions, continuous shooting can occur at a consistent interval until the SD card is full*.
  • A resolution and compression combination other than 145.gif and 129.gif is selected.
    * If continuous shooting suddenly stops, the SD card may be full.
Continuous shooting is available in all modes except 171.gif[AUTO], stitch_assist_icon.gif[Stitch Assist], coloraccentdropper.gif[Color Accent] and colorswapdropper.gif[Color Swap].
To set Continuous Shooting
  1. Press the cont_icon.gifbutton to display cont_icon.gif.

    cont_menu.gif
  2. Shoot the image.

    The camera will continue to record successive images while the shutter button is fully pressed. Recording will cease when the shutter button is released, the card is full or the card does not support a write speed to allow continuous shooting to continue.
To Cancel Continuous Shooting
  1. Press the cont_icon.gif button twice to display single_icon.gif.
caution_a70.gifTo enhance the continuous shooting performance when you suspect the speed has dropped, you are recommended to format the SD card in the camera (Low Level Format) after you save all its images to your computer. note_icon_a70.gif
  • The interval between shots may lengthen slightly when the camera's built-in memory fills.
  • If the flash is firing, the interval between shots will lengthen to accommodate the flash's charging requirements.

Sony a100...Freezing up


I am a pro photographer and one of my cameras is an A100. I have noticed this same problem and sometimes when I am shooting fast the shutter delays. I found the problem in my card. My wife bought me a card based on price.  I sugest you use a card that reads faster than the camera can write. You can get the specs on the Sony Camera Site.
