Question about Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Takes forever to take multiple pictures

I about ready to throw my camera away. Whenever I take a picture, it will save it and then the screen will go black for about 10-15 seconds before, it comes back on and allows me to take another picture. Has anyone else had this problem? Also, what setting do I need to have it on, so the camera will just take the damn picture...with 1 flash, etc. All these delays are driving me crazy. By the time it finished flashing (3 times) I didn't even get a picture of what I wanted.

Re: 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.

Yellow light on when ready to take picture

On some cameras this means a slow shutter speed and that the picture may come out blurry because there's not enough available light for a faster shutter speed to get an acceptably sharp picture.

My dsc-w80 keeps saving all of my pics to the internal memory

Set camera on playback mode, you will see any saved picture in internal memory. Insert memory card and lcd screen will show you either blue screen if memory card has no picture files or will show you picture in memory card. That means memory card is intact with camera and ready to store fresh picture.
Set camera to camera mode and take few fresh pictures and check them in playback mode.
Let me know if you have additional question.

When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

How do you switch off of Macro Mode

It took me forever to figure this out too but I just did. There is a ring on the front around the lens which can be rotated between two positions (macro and infinity). Even reading the manual took me forever to figure it out. Never thought to look at the front of the camera!

Slow response time

Before a digital camera is ready to take a picture, the electronics inside the camera must get ready to capture the picture and save it to the memory card or the internal camera memory. Press the shutter button half-way (to its first detent) to set the exposure and focus. When the ready light is green, continue pressing the shutter button completely down to take the picture. The picture is taken almost immediately.
