If you have to release the shutter release button before you can shoot a second time that is normal.
For making a series of pictures, you have to change the settings in Drive mode.

Why does my olympus sz30mr take ages to take a pic. Says its busy. Iso is set to -1.3 will this slow the shutter speed under low light conditions


Be aware ti takes a camera the same time to save a camera, as it needs to shoot the picture. So if you shoot at 4 seconds, it will take at least 4 seconds to save the picture. When you are shooting under normal conditions, you won't notice it, because a shot from 1/30 of a second is saved in 1/30 of a second after you shot, It becomes noticeable when you use shutter times from half a second or longer, but it is absolute normal for any digital camera.

My kodak easyshare m340 screen after taking a picture lasts too long before the next shot comes up on the screen. How can I get the screen to show the picture then go away faster??


One thing you can try is to use a faster memory card. Some cards are very slow, and that is why many are cheap.
Here is a review and some interesting points:
Kodak easyshare m340 review
Some points copied: "The M340 performed well on Shooting-Digital.com's shutter lag test, averaging just 0.33 second from shutter press to image capture. In the best-case scenario, the camera can power up and fire a shot in 2.45 seconds. Even better, you only have to wait 1.74 seconds between shots. In comparison, the PowerShot A1100 starts up and shoots in only 2.26 seconds but takes 2.35 seconds between shots; the sluggish Coolpix S230 needs 5.79 seconds to start and 5.69 seconds between shots."
So, if your camera is slow with a fast card, it may need repair. Check with Kodak.com at the support/ repair department.

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.

I wanna take a picture but i dont know how to make the camara wait 10 sec before it takes the picture


Hi,

Self-timer shooting:

This function lets you take pictures using the self-timer.
Fix the camera securely on a tripod for self-timer shooting. This function is useful for taking
pictures when you want to be included in the photograph.

1 Select [ON], and press Z.
2 Press the shutter button fully to
take the picture.
• Pressing the shutter button halfway
locks the focus and exposure.
• The self-timer lamp lights for
approximately 10 seconds, then starts
blinking. After blinking for approximately
2 seconds, the picture is taken.
• To stop shooting while in n mode,
press the shutter button fully again.
• To cancel the self-timer, press Z.
• The self-timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.

Note:
• If sequential shooting is attempted in self-timer mode, the camera shoots 5
frames at most regardless of the setting.


Hope my info fixes your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
cheers.

Extremely long time writing to CF card


IIRC these cameras support a noise reduction feature through a custom function. The camera will take a second exposure with the shutter closed (i.e. against something pure black) to see which pixels in the camera are "hot", and then will use that information to remove that hot pixel noise from the original image. "hot" pixels depend on temperature and exposure length so the camera would need to do this on every shot.

Not functioning d200

I bought mine from Ritz here. I bought another D200 from Adorama here. Also try Amazon here. Adorama usually has D200/18-70 kits in stock here. It helps me keep adding to this site when you click these links to get yours.
HIGH SPEED PERFORMANCE
General:
My D200 is fast, smooth and quiet. Unlike my D1H, my D200 makes less noise and vibration. It doesn't feel as macho, and allows me to shoot in more places more discreetly. At five frames per second it just hums along sweetly, compared to my bigger cameras which always felt like something was going to come flying off of them from all the clattering.
Buffers versus Memory Card Memory
The D200 uses two very different kinds of memory for storing images.
We're all familiar with the CF cards used to store hundreds of images. These aren't that fast and card makers rate them for write speed. The D200 uses these for recording your images.
The D200, like all professional digital cameras, has a second very high speed internal cache memory called a buffer. You never touch this. This buffer memory stores 25 frames of JPGs, 21 frames of raw or 19 frames of raw + JPG.
The buffer memory is fast enough to store all these frames at the full 5FPS rate, or faster.
The D200 is never slowed by memory speed card. The D200, like other professional cameras, has a second independent set of processors which handle writing the contents of the fast buffer memory to the slower CF card. Because this writing is done with a second set of processors you never know it's working except for the green CF light on the back. The D200 can be busy for over a minute writing to the CF card and you still have the complete ability to shoot at 5 FPS and play back.
The buffer is so deep that even under the heaviest shooting it's unlikely that you'll ever fill it. Even if you fill the buffer you can still make photos and playback, just that the maximum shooting rate will lower a bit until the buffer write and frees up at least one frame.
It takes it a 100 seconds to write 400 MB of data from 19 uncompressed RAW + Large FINE JPG files to my 40x 1GB Lexar card. As a photographer you don't care how long it takes to write. So long as the buffer isn't full the camera works as fast as ever. Even if it is full you can shoot the next shot as soon as the buffer clears enough room. You don't have to wait for everything to write to make a next shot. Even with my slow 40x lexar 1GB card, a constipated buffer and huge compressed raw + JPG Large Fine files I can make a new shot every 3.2 seconds. With uncompressed raw + JPG Fine Large I can get off a new shot with a full buffer every 3.7 seconds. If you ever get to these limits you're doing something stupid. Just shoot JPG and you'll never be able to fill up the buffer faster than you can shoot. With Large FINE Optimal Quality JPGs the buffer clears at the rate of 1 FPS. With Large Basic Optimal Quality JPGs I can run at 2 FPS even with a full buffer. Use the smaller image sizes or the Size Priority JPG setting and you can shoot as fast with the buffer full as empty!
I've had to do seriously stupid tests to fill it up.
Shot Buffer Readout
A shot buffer is fast memory inside the camera which stores the shots you've just made. Your memory card is written from this buffer. Even with the slowest card on earth you can shoot as fast as you want, since it all sits in the buffer until written. Your card is recorded in the background while you shoot. The green CF light tells you this is happening.
The size of this buffer is how many shots it can hold while allowing you to shoot at 5 FPS. If it gets full the camera slows to only as fast as your card will accept data, which is about one frame per second . These buffers are why you don't need to worry about card speed.
I've never filled up more than 9 shots in a buffer. I don't shoot that fast. With a 25 frame buffer the D200 has far more than I'll ever use.
This is the number you see while the shutter button is pressed halfway. It usually looks like [r25], which means it's empty and can hold 25 more shots. Normally you'll see a big number like [527] or [ 1.3]k, which is how many shots are left on your card. As you shoot fast sequences you can see this number drop. When it drops to [r00] your buffer is full and the camera slows down its shooting until the buffer is recorded to the card. It's fun to look at when you get your camera, but since I never fill it up I don't worry about it. You'd have to be shooting many long high speed sequences continuously with a slow card ever to use much of this.

Night shots


Hi: Well, I think you have a problem because you cannot take still shots at night :) Not even with the best SLR. The camera as to get light to make the picture. My advices are, not only use the tripod but when you shoot, but set the timer function so you don't touch the camera when it shoot's and use a high time of exposure like 2 or 5 seconds depending on the subject... Make several experiences with low resolution and when you suceed, make it with a higher resolution ;) Regards
