This may linked directly to an issue with the memory card or internal storage circuits.

When the shutter release is operated, the image projected on the sensor is collected and sent to the internal high speed memory of the camera called the buffer. This buffer is very fast - but not very large in capacity. Depending on your exposure settings (NEF, JPEG, NEF w/ Preview, Large, Med Small, Fine, etc.) you may be able to take anywhere between 6 and 75 exposures in rapid succession - this means 3 or 4 per second. Once the camera's internal buffer is full, it must be sent to the comparatively slow CF card. When this happens, no more shooting can take place.

A minute strikes me as being too long for this to take. I would recommend that you remove the CF card and copy the contents to a computer. Format the card by the computer to make sure that it has the capacity indicated on the label. If it is slightly less, it is OK - if it is more than that, it may indicate a problem area on the card that the camera is repeatedly attempting store data upon. If the CF card checks out OK, return it to the camera and format it in the camera. This is a very important step. Whenever you transfer pictures from the card - whether it is with a card reader or via a cable between the computer and the camera - format the card after the transfer in the camera - before taking more photos.

CF cards have dropped in price, and you may benefit from buying a new one for use in the camera. Select a faster class card whenever possible. Memory cards do have a finite number of read / write operations and you may be reaching the end of life on yours.

I hope this helps and good luck!

SOURCE: NIKON D2H ERR FAULT

I had a D2H with a similar error. The camera started giving an 'ERR' message almost from new but from reading various posts from other users I assumed it was a 'known' idiosyncrasy of the D2H, the camera would create an underexposed first shot after turning on. A colleague has the same problem on his D2H, and there are numerous references to the same problem on the web. Your post points to a similar shutter issue. My shutter failed completely at around 65,000 actuations, well short of the advertised '150,000'. In addition, the horizontal Main Command Dial had also failed a short time before, and it had cost me £135GBP to have that repaired.

The problem is down to the shutter and unfortunately replacing the shutter costs £349GBP in the UK, quoted to me by the Nikon UK Service Department, in Kingston, in March 09.

As for Nikon repairing it under a 'goodwill' policy, you may have better luck than me if you live somewhere other than the UK. I told them to keep mine, as attempting to charge me for the repair was the last straw, it wasn’t worth me spending another £350 on a camera that hadn’t been reliable in the first place. I had been planning on getting a D3 in October/November but will now probably sell my Nikon gear and go over to Canon, as Nikon don’t seem too bothered about their professional user base, and I certainly won’t be paying £5,000 for a D3X.

SOURCE: Why is there a delay?? Nikon D90

Sounds like you turned on Exposure delay mode (menu d10). This is similar to the "locking up the mirror" (or somethign) feature on canons.

YOu only need it when you doing a tripod shot with long exposure and you want to minimise absolutly all possibility of shake from the camera its self. Lifting the SLR mirror will cause small shake. Generally you can turn this off (i've felt it ona few times my accident and been confused for a second)

SOURCE: 1. how do I reset

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

Live View doesnt allow operation of 2 sec delayed shutter. How do I fix please?


You use Live view to get an accurate focus then turn live view off and then once 2 sec delay has been selected (this can be done before going into Live View) release the shutter.

Trying to set switch for 5 minutes , and i only get 30 seconds or 15 minutes


Which brand and model number specifically?
Leviton: 1-800-824-3005
Leviton Decora manual says:
"PR180 operates by detecting motion (such as body heat) within its field-of-view (area of coverage) and automatically switches lights ON. When motion is no longer detected, lights remain ON for a selected time and automatically switch OFF.
Adjustable light and time-delay controls are located on the front of the device."

The manual is not specific about set times.

In any case, the device has off-delay timing circuit, so once infrared heat is no longer sensed, the delay period begins, and once the delay period expires, the device is switched off.
Delay timing circuits are common for many home and industrial applications.
As a general rule, delay timers can be set for different time durations, however the Amazon page that sells PR180 product does not specify available time settings either.

Legrand RW3U occupancy sensor spec sheet says adjustable time delay 15 seconds 5 minutes, 15 minutes and 30 minutes
http://www.amazon.com/Legrand-RW3U603I-Occupancy-Vacancy-Decorator/dp/B005FMLL5G

Delay switches
Here is manual delay-time switch Tork SS20 SS13 where you can 'fine-tune' the delay circuit, but my experience is that exact 5 minutes is not easily set:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Paragon-ET-series-243.jpg
GE 15318 switch offers 5 minute, but there is no guarantee that you can get 5 minutes exactly:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/GE-15318-countdown-timer.jpg

My conclusion is that there are very limited delay-time choices with this model number, or device is defective and suggest to call Leviton.

Nikon D3100 shutter "problem"?


Are your pictures properly exposed and are they sharp or are your pictures degraded? Is that 1/3-second you describe a delay between the time you push the shutter release and the time the picture is taken or somthing else? Check to make sure you're in the proper shutter release mode (slider switch to right of the mode dial). Also, your self-timer may be turned on. Your camera allows you to set a 2 or 10 second delay from the menus. If it is set to 2 seconds and turned on, it might seem like a 1/3-second delay. If that doesn't help, you camera is covered by Nikon's warranty. Contact Nikon Service at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

I am looking to learn how to set the camera to take a sequence of delayed shots..how do I do this..?


The camera shoots continuously while the shutter button is held down.

there are three options for it

Continuous(Approx. 4.0 img/sec)

Shooting AF (Approx. 1.1 img per secnd)

Shooting LV (1.2 images per secnd)
(Live View)



Press teh shutter button.
Use up and down buttons to select the shooting modes.
The camera will continue to reord continous images as long as the shutter button is held down.
The taking will cease when it is released.

Flash Setting Causes Delay


Without seeing the image, it's difficult to pinpoint the problem. But, going on the description you've described here, my guess would be that your shutter speed is too low to record any movement sharply, or is recording movement you are making while holding the camera. Some things that you may want to review with the camera to ensure that you're shooting the images correctly:

First, if you can look at the image using a photo editing program, see if you can review the EXIF (also called metadata) file and look at the exposure. Generally, anything under 1/30th of a second will show motion blur introduced from hand-holding the camera. If the shutter speed is below this, you should consider using a higher ISO setting or opening the apperture (this equates to a lower "F" number, so "F4" allows in LESS light than "F2.8") to allow more light into the lens. Remember that doubling the ISO will allow you to make an exposure with HALF the light. The down side to this is that higher ISO settings, particularly in Point and Shoot cameras, introduce higher levels of noise.

Ensure that you are no more than 10 feet from your subject. Most on-camera flash units are much less effective beyond this distance.

If you are photographing sports/action, remember that a shutter speed of 1/250th of a second will eliminate most motion blur.

Also remember that most point and shoot digital cameras are "one chip" cameras and often have multiple tasks to perform while making an image (focus, exposure, flash, recording and writing the file are all performed at the same time...), so it's not uncommon to see delays (also called "shutter lag") in point and shoot cameras (DSLR's have multiple chips, and don't have this issue...). One way to resolve this is to depress the shutter release half way. This keeps the chip "hot" and ready to expose. Doing this with a point and shoot camera greatly increases the responsiveness to the shutter release.

Hope this helps and happy shooting!

How do I use 360' lens on my Canon G9?


The C1 & C2 settings are for "Custom" settings. You'll most likely want to set your camera either to "P" or "Auto" mode.
To have it delay for 10 seconds and take 3 shots, press the "Menu" button and then scroll down to "Drive Settings". Then, choose the following settings:
Self-Timer: "C" Delay: 10 sec. Shots: 3 shots
Then, press the "Func./Set" key to lock in the change. Next, press the custom timer button on the back of the camera and then choose the "C" timer using the directional keys. Then, press teh "Func.Set" button.
Lastly, set up your camera, press the shutter release, and the timer light should start blinking. 10 seconds later, the camera will take 3 photos in succession.
Hope this helps!

EOS 30D is slow to fire.


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.?
