Question about Canon EOS 30D Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
When the shutter release button is depressed, ( on auto focus ) the camera focusses, shows the focusing light in the viewfinder, bleeps but doesn't shoot . I focus on auto, then change to manual and it still doesn't fire. When it does work, it is sometimes a second or two slow.
I can get it to shoot if I quickly press the shutter release button 5 or 6 times.
Any ideas ? Thanks for your help.
Are you sure you aren't in the delay setting in drive mode? This camera has 2 delay settings, one for 2 seconds between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo, and one with 10 seconds delay - often used when you want to be in the photo (e.g. self-portrait or group photo).
If you aren't in the delay mode, then I need to know more about your settings. What shooting mode are you using? What type of photo are you trying to take (portrait, landscape, sports)? Are you shooting indoors, outdoors, bright sunlight, overcast, etc.?
