Timndege,
You are taking long exposures over 3 seconds, the camera does make some slight noise while the timer is going through the count down, that is normal, as long as the shutter is doing what it is supposed to do and your image is coming out (and the ones over 3 seconds also) it sounds normal. Only if it is hanging up and taking longer than the time you are describing, then the shutter should be cleaned.

I took a picture in the s mode or any mode messing with the shutter speed and when i go to view the picture i just get a black screen.....i am not sure why this is happening....any thoughts?


Proper exposure is a balancing act between the shutter speed and the aperture (the size of the opening in the lens). (There's also the ISO sensitivity, but I'll ignore that for now.) If the shutter is open for a longer time, the lens must be closed down. If the shutter is open for a shorter time, the lens must be opened up wider to allow the same amount of light to reach the sensor.

The Shutter priority mode attempts to adjust the aperture to give the proper exposure for the shutter speed you've selected. The lens has physical limits as to how wide the opening can be. If the shutter speed is too fast, the lens will only open as far as it can go but that may not be enough. In this case the camera will display "Lo" in the viewfinder to warn you but will go ahead and take the picture anyway. If the shutter speed is too fast then you won't get enough light through the lens and you'll end up with a dark or black picture.

Try reducing the shutter speed (leaving it open for a longer time), like 1/30 of a second instead of 1/125 of a second. If the shutter is open too long, you run the risk of camera motion. You can also increase the ISO setting, making the sensor more sensitive to light. This increases digital noise, which looks somewhat like film grain. You can also try adding more light, perhaps by using the flash, if the subject isn't too far from the camera.

When I try to take a picture you hear a clicking noise and the flash is working but it will not take a picture


You may be too close to your subject and the autofocus is not locking in. back up a few inches and the shutter should go off. Try turning off auto-focus.
If this isn't the case it could be a shutter problem. Turn off the flash (if you don't you'll get blinded during my next step) look inside the barrel of the lens and click the shutter...you should see a little flicker inside the lens as you hit the shutter button. If you do see it, then it is in fact just the shutter...if not it's the camera itself. Be sure you are holding the shutter button down completely...as halfway only allows you o focus.

While clicking pictures, the screen went black. If i click a picture, it takes black picture. I am able to see previously clicked pictures and all other functions work. Pls help.


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Do you mean that, you press the shutter release once and the shutter stays open until you press the shutter release a second time. If so, check your shutter speed setting. If it is set to "T" (Timed Exposure) the camera is working correctly. Change your shutter speed to an appropriate setting, such as 1/125. If that does not solve the problem, you might need to take it in for repair.

Hi, I have a Dimage 7i camera and I'm very new to it. Been taking pictures no problems but all of a sudden no matter how long I hold the shutter button a picture will not take. There is a hand icon in the...


as you already know the shutter button has two parts or clicks to it. the first click will allow the lens to autofocus and automatically select the right exposure, and/or calculate shutter time for the picture. when you see the hand signal, it means that the camera calculated that the shutter will stay open longer then usual to take the picture. so if you move while you take the picture it my come out blurry. all that happends during the first click, which means that your shutter button isn't making contact with the second click. it should be an easy fix at any camera shop. if its still under warranty the manufacturer should have no problem fixing that.
