Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera has a delay so my subject moves before the pic is taken

I have the Nikon Coolpix L3. When I first used it, it was a point and shoot camera. Then I started experimenting with the settings and I did something and I don't know what. When I take a picture it seems like it has a delay time. I have to hold the camera still until it flashes. It flashes about three times and usually by that time, my subject (my dog) has moved out of the picture. I've looked in the manual but cannot find an answer. I've tried changing from SCENE to CAMERA mode but that doesn't change anything either. Do you have anysuggestions that may help me to get my camera back to a point and shoot? And what should I not touch so that this doesn't happen again? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Mary Schultz from sunny Arizona

Reset the camera. Use your manual on the how-to. usually a button in the battery compartment. Or leave the battery out for a few hours.

NIK0N coolpix l3 movie transfer


Hi:
When you transfer all the files, the movies should be transferred as well.
Open Windows Explorer to the folder you saved the files to.
Notice the file names by using either details or list in the view.
Other operating systems may differ slightly.
The movie files should be with .mov extension.
The jpeg or picture files should be saved to .jpg extension.
Some cameras will save to a different extension if the highest resolution is used, such as .tiff or other.

NIK0N coolpix l3 movie transfer


The movie should be transferred automatically when you transfer the images from the sd card. There should be a folder where the pics are transferred, usually through a program called Picture Project. Look for an icon with the Quicktime logo on it or a movie logo. That should be it.

NIKON COOLPIX L3


See my posts on this problem. By forcing the lens with you fingers into the camera, it may put it on track. This can damage the camera even further, but may be worth a try. You can try to pull it out when starting, and then pushing in on turning it off.
Worth a try, may work.
