Question about Digital Cameras

Picture Display delay

I have a nikon coolpix L6. When I take a pic, it displays it on the screen for a few seconds then goes to a black screen that takes FOREVER to return me to the ability to take pics again.

So, I take a pic, view for a few seconds, then have a black screen for literally like 10 seconds before I can take another pic. I'm losing a lot of good pics waiting on it to cycle through. I can't find anything in the menus or instructions on how to change that setting.

Is it possible to take that delay out? My other digital (it's a Kodak) doesn't do that at all.

Nikon coolpix s4100 blank screen


Looks as if the sensor is defect or the connection from the sensor to the main board is defect. Anyway if pressing the display button does not solve the problem, you should contact a nikon certified crevice centre.

1. how do I reset to the camera default settings (Coolpix S3000) 2. When taking a picture, there is a 5-7 second delay before the pic is displayed on the camera viewing screen - -why?


The delay time from the instant the pictures is taken to the time it's displayed on your LCD is probably due to the image size/quality. Your camera has been set to make the maximum quality of picture suitable for printing which is not a bad thing. It's giving you the best performance it can. You don't have to wait for the picture to load to the LCD before taking another picture as the camera will temporary store the images in what is called a buffer while it's writing to the memory card. It's possible you could have up to a 5 or 6 image burst from that camera. If you want to default to factory settings. Turn the control dial to set up and

The screen goes black after pic taken


Either your batteries are low or you have a slow card.

Picture display is slow


Some thoughts...make sure the battery is fully charged...set the quality of the pictures to a lower level...make sure the card is not overly full of previous pictures...use a faster card.

Viewing photos without time and date


Unfortunately the Nikon Coolpix 7900 does not have a 'display' button to take care of this. So you need to go through Menu to access Setup menu. Here you will get option to customize the display.

Takes forever to take multiple pictures


My camera has different "modes" and if I put it in the "action" mode it seems to work more quickly between pics. There should also be a setting to change how long the pictures is displayed after taking, if you shorten that it will recover quicker to allow the next picture taking.
