    What mode is the camera set for? Does it take as long if the mode dial is set to full auto (green box)? What lens are you using? Have you tried a different lens?

    You need to provide more information. If you are in the M or Tv mode and the shutter speed is set at 30 seconds, your camera is doing exactly what you have set it up for.

You may have it set on shutter priority or the like with the time set to 30 seconds. Try set it to landscape, portrait etc, one of the auto modes, and it should clear up the problem.

Why are my photos blurry


I would think that you are not focusing your camera before fully depressing the shutter button Start by depressing your shutter button very lightly until you see the outline of a small square in the middle of the view finder . At that point you are in focus . Now fully depress the shutter button and take your picture . You must do this prior to taking each photo . Remember to just depress the shutter button about half way to focus your picture image , before pressing it fully . I hope this is of some help to you.

I have a Nikon Coolpix P500. I have to depress the shutter release button several time to get it to snap a picture. The indicator light shows a fully charged battery.


Did you change (unnoticed perhaps) anything to the settings?
Be aware your camera needs a little time to focus. And when conditions are bad, like little contrast in the subject or bad light conditions, the camera needs more time to focus.
Please try to shoot in automatic mode. Then when you have a subject press the shutter release button half way. Look if you framed correct and then press fully. This way every time the camera should click.

How do i shoot a video on this camera? I set it on Video and depress button but it only shoots a picture. I have no manual.


You have to push the button with the red dot directly behind the camera and you will see the record selection on the top right hand side of the screen and the time couner will start to progress on the bottom right side of the screen.
If you depress the shutter button you will only take one snapshot of what you are trying to video.
hope this helps

I have a nikon d200, lately the shutter lags 1-2 seconds.


It is probably delaying while it autofocuses.  If it is like most Canon cameras, depressing the shutter half-way should allow you to focus without taking a picture, then when the moment is right, depress the shutter button fully to take the shot.  You will want to practice this a bit to get used to it.  Shooting in low-light it can take longer to find the focus, so it becomes more necessary to use this technique.
Hopefully that helps, but I am not a Nikon user.

Err 99 when I attach lens


I had the same problem with my camera and i found this guide online very helpful in most cases




1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Err 99


Although you may have cleaned the lens contacts, did you clean the camera contacts? This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera should be serviced.

Error 99


I get error 99 sometimes on my 20 D but it?s usually to do with a lens that is attached. Sigma lens have been known to cause error's. If it's not that or dirty contact on the lens then it could be a more serious problem. I would at least check it out with a canon dealer/repair centre.
