Disappearing 'Continuous Shooting' option

I have a Canon PowerShot A590IS. The Continuous Shooting option is not consistently in the camera's menu. How do I get it to show and stay?

I had it there once (it just appeared one day after repeatedly not being there) and was able to use it but now it has disappeared. I have a Sandisk Ultra II, 15 Mb/sec, 4Gb card in it. TIA

    Ok, I tried that but still nothing. Besides, without a memory card I can't take any photos right?

    Ah, I didn't know that. Interesting.

    Looks like I'll need to update the firmware then. Oh well.

    Thanks.

Try it without the memory card. Some times they cards to have conflicts with the camera.

    You can take like 12 pics with no card. If that did not correct it. Then your firmware will need to be updated. You may be able to get lucky enough to find a download online, otherwise the manufacturer will do it for $50

How to use continuous shooting on canon powershot sx40


Set your camera to high speed continuous shooting, track the action, and just before the peak press and hold the shutter release button. The camera will take a series of pictures and hopefully one of them will catch the action at its peak.
If you're asking how to set the camera for high speed continuous shooting, Turn the mode dial to SCN, press the FUNC/SET button, select the overlapping rectangles, and press the DISP button. Full details are in the "High-Speed Continuous Shooting" section of the manual (page 74 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download one here.

How do I set the self timer on my cannon a560 camera?


Press the self-timer button to cycle through self-timer settings. The rectangle indicates normal shooting, the clock indicates self-timer. Depending on the shooting mode, you may also see overlapped rectangles for continuous shooting.

To change the delay time, select [Self-timer] from the Recording menu.

The self-timer button is the same as the down-arrow on the circular multi-selector, marked with a clock.

Canon Powershot SD1000: LCD screen display


Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!

Continuous mode


i think the frame rate is 1.3 frames per second.

Issue:
How do I set Continuous Shooting?
Solution: Setting Continuous Shooting mode PowerShot SD750 and SD1000.

Continuous Shooting In this mode, the camera shoots continuously while the shutter button is held down. Recording ceases when the shutter button is released. In addition, under the following conditions, continuous shooting can occur at a consistent interval until the SD card is full*.
  • A resolution and compression combination other than 145.gif and 129.gif is selected.
    * If continuous shooting suddenly stops, the SD card may be full.
Continuous shooting is available in all modes except 171.gif[AUTO], stitch_assist_icon.gif[Stitch Assist], coloraccentdropper.gif[Color Accent] and colorswapdropper.gif[Color Swap].
To set Continuous Shooting
  1. Press the cont_icon.gifbutton to display cont_icon.gif.

    cont_menu.gif
  2. Shoot the image.

    The camera will continue to record successive images while the shutter button is fully pressed. Recording will cease when the shutter button is released, the card is full or the card does not support a write speed to allow continuous shooting to continue.
To Cancel Continuous Shooting
  1. Press the cont_icon.gif button twice to display single_icon.gif.
caution_a70.gifTo enhance the continuous shooting performance when you suspect the speed has dropped, you are recommended to format the SD card in the camera (Low Level Format) after you save all its images to your computer. note_icon_a70.gif
  • The interval between shots may lengthen slightly when the camera's built-in memory fills.
  • If the flash is firing, the interval between shots will lengthen to accommodate the flash's charging requirements.
