Continous shooting with D100 - it doesn't work...

Hmm... I haven't used my D100 for some time now, but as I'm trying to shoot continously I get problems. Well, no problems, but I don't manage to get my D100 to shoot in continous mode. I suppose I do something wrong??

Mine too. It's a worn-out selector switch. Jiggle it and it'll work again. Time delay same. Our college has four Nikon D100s with this problem. Poor switch contacts.

How do I set the continous shooting on my finepix s3380?

This information will be on page 40-41 of your user manual. If you do not have it, send me an email to
1. Choose a continuous shooting mode. Press the progressing camera button to display continuous shooting options. Press selector < or > to highlight the desired option and press MENU/OK.
2. Press the shutter button halfway to focus.
3. Pictures will be taken while the shutter button is pressed. Shooting ends when the shutter button is released, memory is full, or the selected number of shots has been taken.

How do i use the burst mode on my nikon coolpix s6000?

For Nikon s6000 (altho this question is posted in D5000 section)
Hope you have read the instruction manual by now. In Auto mode, go through the menu to get the shooting mode - there are I think 2 different continous shooting modes for your camera - one standard and one sport (2 others but they either select the best shot of serveral or combine them to make the best shot). Pretty impressive. Don't look in the manual for 'burst' mode, it's called 'continuous'.

For D5000, menu and again shooting options.

I am looking to learn how to set the camera to take a sequence of delayed do I do this..?

The camera shoots continuously while the shutter button is held down.

there are three options for it

Continuous(Approx. 4.0 img/sec)

Shooting AF (Approx. 1.1 img per secnd)

Shooting LV (1.2 images per secnd)
(Live View)

Press teh shutter button.
Use up and down buttons to select the shooting modes.
The camera will continue to reord continous images as long as the shutter button is held down.
The taking will cease when it is released.

Contunues shooting

You put the camera into one of the Continuous modes by holding the Release Mode button (to the right of the LCD control panel on the top of the camera, marked with a set of overlapping rectangles) and turning the command dial on the back. The two choices are Continuous Low and Continous High (marked with the overlapping rectangles and the letter "L" or "H"). Frame and shoot as normal.

In continous mode the camera will take pictures as long as your finger remains on the shutter release button or until the buffer fills up. In Continous High the camera will take as many as 4.5 pictures a second. Custom Setting #d6 controls how fast Continous Low shoots.

Bear in mind that the speeds mentioned are only maximums. If your shutter speed is set to half a second, you're obviously not going to take four pictures in one second.

This is all in the manual, under "Release Mode".

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus

I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

Just purchased a canon A590. on page 84 of user guide, continuous shooting is described. I'm somewhat familiar with SD cards, but Canon implies that I have to use their MSH type SD card to use the...

I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames per second of continous shooting. But it also identifies a 20 and 30fps which refers to the movie mode. If the manual states a MSH type Sd card, it usually means that the card may be of a faster recording speed to take continous shots. But I think what you might mean continous shots could be the 3 or 5 second burst on the Digital SLR cameras. These modes are usually for sports and very good for Formular 1 racing pictures. The specs of your camera does not have a sports mode or any continous burst. So you will be stuck in the 1.4fps levels. Let me know if this helps.

3 frames per second

Hey there timdjones7, the camera will only shoot 3 fps when placed in Continous Shooting Mode. You can set this via the dial controls on top of your camera. Rotate it to the little icon that looks like a man running. Now you are set to go. Have fun!
