Question about Canon Digital Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera with EF-S 17-85mm IS Lens

My shutter is not responding!

I am not sure if I accidentally pressed a mode button or something that suddenly told my camera to stop shooting. In fact, no matter what I seem to do, the shutter is not responding. Help!

Thank you in advance for helping me.

Re: My shutter is not responding!

Try this.Page 100 of your manual: Revert camera to Default Settings. I would do one (if that didn't fixYa) then do the other. clear camera settings and clear all custom functions

When i push the shutter button on my Av100 camera,it show me Image previwe screen.also when I push zoom in button,it also gave me the same screen.Bcoz of that,i can't get me.

I do not know any solution so far but try this if you want to use your camera like normal:

1. While in view/gallery mode, press and hold the view/gallery mode button.
2. press the shutter halfway. it should take you to shooting mode. remember to hold the view/gallery mode button.
3. use the camera as normal as long as you do not let go of the button.

to go to view/gallery mode:
just press the shutter button halfway from shoot mode without pressing other buttons.

I hope this helps.

How to use nikon ML-L3

Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. Quick-response remote fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. Delayed remote gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To set the D90's shooting mode, press the shooting mode button (the overlapping rectangles to the right of the LCD panel on the top of the body) and turn the main command wheel on the back. Quick-response remote shows a picture of the remote control unit, the delayed remote shows that and the clock (the same symbol used for the self-timer).

The remote mode is cleared whenever the camera is turned off. Since monitoring the infrared port consumes battery power, the camera may turn itself off before you take a shot. To prevent this, change custom setting #C5 to something more appropriate.

Shutter release not responding

Hi tmclaughlin0, In the camera is in AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual.

Shutter stays open

According to what you say, it seems that you selected B (Bulb) as shutter speed (and MANUAL mode).

First, check whether you are on MANUAL mode ("M"); then, check your shutter speed. If it's really in "bulb" mode, all you have to do is dialing the speed button down to figures that match your subject's light conditions and your other preferences involved in the exposure (ISO, lens apperture).

Continuous mode

i think the frame rate is 1.3 frames per second.

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.

  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.

I need help with my canon s80 how do i make it do video?

Turn the mode dial to the movie mode (right next to the letter C). Half press the shutter button to set focus and exposure, then fully press the button to begin shooting. Press the shutter button again to stop shooting. If you want to change the size or frame rate of the movie frames, use the menu. If you need user manuals, they are available for download here.

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


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.

• 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,

Continuous Shooting

must be something to do with the mode you are using like auto mode, manual mode P mode so on...havn't use anything else the the manual mode so do a hit and trial procedure. Also be sure to increase the shutter speed...

“Shoot and Select” Modes

e “shoot and select” modes allows you to select an image out of a sequence of still pictures you have taken by depressing the shutter button and storing it. This is best for shooting moving objects. SHOOT & SELECT 1: Shoots a rapid succession of 4 still pictures by keeping the shutter button pressed. SHOOT & SELECT 2: Shoots a succession of still pictures by keeping the shutter button pressed. The Stylus 500 will continue to shoot until you take your finger off the shutter button or until the card is full. After shooting, you will have the option to immediately delete the pictures you do not wish to keep.
