SOURCE: Camera shuts off after one shot

Set the camera to clean ccd mode and carefully remove the lens. If you can't see the ccd but only the shutter then the shutter is sticking. I have this problem when not using the camera regularly. My solution to free the shutter was just to set the camera to long exposure and just keep restarting the camera and taking a photo until the shutter moves. This problem happened from the very first time I had the camera run low on batteries at a few months old but at the time I never checked the shutter and the camera just restarted once and it worked.

Press Menu/OK. Use the zoom rocker to select the icons in the bottom of the monitor. 2nd symbol from the left is the selftimer. Set Selftimer to ON and press the shutter button. It will give a 10 secs. delay. You can cancel the selftimer with the Disp/back button. The selftimer has to be activated for every shot.

Basically you can have the camera selected to any mode on the mode dial - press Ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - highlight camera tab and left arrow over and then down arrow to the symbol that looks like a clock - this is the self timer option. right arrow over and make sure you select it to on - and then press ok.

approximately 10 seconds, then starts
blinking. After blinking for approximately 2
seconds, the picture is taken.

Have to press button down twice to take shot

This is your first SLR?

The normal procedure is to press the button halfway to get the focus. This is indicated by one or more red LEDs lighting in the viewfinder and a confirmation beep. Once you have this, you press the button fully to take the shot.

As the camera will not take a photo when not in focus, then pressing the button once and letting go will focus it, and pressing it again will take the shot.

Get used to pressing it halfway before taking your shots and it will soon become second nature to you.

Dimage Z3 self-timer

It is in the Drive mode, the options are single shot, continuous, bracket, and self timer. It is not very clear in the manual but it is on the 1st menu page, page 46. Navigate using the arrow button. The default is single shot. When you set the camera to self timer, after taking the shot, it will return to the previous mode, ie. single shot or continuous. If you always use the self timer, you can reprogram the flash mode button to set the drive mode without going to the menu, page 65 of the manual. If you do not have a manual, you can download here :

What kind of focus settings does the DiMAGE Z3 have during movie recording?

The following three settings are selectable during the movie recording: Continuous AF: The single-shot AF is operated in advance of recording, and AF is always operated during recording. Single AF: The single-shot AF is operated in advance of recording, and the focus position is fixed during recording.*This mode is useful for shooting a low contrast and hard-to-be-focused subject, such as fireworks. Manual: The focus point is to be set manually in advance of recording, and its position is fixed during recording.*Manual focus is useful when it is difficult to focus automatically.
