Because the camera has Mechanical Focus the camera button has 2 Pressures, Holding The first 1/2 of the button press will enable to Mechanical Focus to work, And then once the green dot is shown telling you its in focus, pressing the button all the way down will then take your picture !

Camera wont snap picture


As long as the orange light is on, the camera is not ready to make a picture. The focus area, should become green, to tell you the camera is in focus. Then you can press the shutter release button complete. Check the settings of the camera, and put it in automatic. When you put it in one of the manual modes pipe P M S or A, the camera will not take a picture when there is not enough lift or something else you did not take in account.
If the camera keeps this way, unless you switched to auto, it could be there is something going on. but let me know it auto des not work.

Very slow in taking a picture


Cathy,

I'm not sure I already asked you something, but it looks to me, you are new with digital camera's. The digital cameras all have a feature called auto focus. DSLRs and some expensive system cameras do have an extra sensor to autofocus, while you are pressing the shutter release button. they sometimes can focus in a few hundreds of a second. Most other cameras use the same sensor as the one the picture is captured on.they look for contras differences and some other things. When you press the button half, the camera starts focusing the picture. That can take a few tenths of a second, but when the light is bad, or the subject you try to focus on has bad contrast conditions, it can take up to one second or more. when the camera is focused it will show a green light of give a beep. Then you can press the shutter complete. Still the camera has to switch from focus yo capture. Also a tenth of a second or more.
I understand it is annoying when you are used to cameras with a film, because when you pressed the button, the picture was shot. If you want that again with a digital camera, you almost are convicted to a DSLR. Even the cheaper ones shoot that quick. But they are bulkier, heavy and quick.

Problems taking pictures on nikon d1x


There may be something wrong with the camera. Make sure it is set to Single Exposure setting and not Multiples. There should be a control on the top left to change this. Look for an "S". this is what you want. If that doesnt help, you may need to get it repaired.

G1 phone camera doesnt take pictures


As the others said, there are the two settings. I had a similar problem, then realized how it worked. You need to not press very hard while it focuses first. Then you can press all the way down, if you hold it all the way down, it doesn't recognize that you've already passed the first "Focus" pressure point and gone into the second "Capture" pressure point.

My camera wont turn on


The likely problem is your batteries. Digital cameras need to run on rechargeable batteries, If you are already using rechargeables,have a look at tha mAh value which should be written on the side. Retailers recomend a value of at least 1800,personally i would go for 2100.
