Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Continuous Shooting I'm just getting to grips with this as only bought it a few weeks ago. I've pressed the correct button for the continuous shooting option but it only allows to choose from 'Drive Mode - Single Shooting & Self-Timer/Remote Control'. Should I be doing something else? Thanks

Re: 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...

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 my D70 for continuous shutter firing? I want to be able to hold the shutter button down and have it take continuous catures.

Turn the Command Dial while holding down the Shooting Mode button to cycle through the different shooting modes. The one you want is the overlapping frames. The shooting mode button is just to the left of the viewfinder, next to the Bracket button.

For full details, refer to the "Choosing a Shooting Mode" section in your manual.

How do I get consecutive shooting on my nikon DX? I need to take multiple shots of someone running so I can capture the movements but I don't know how to do this.

In any shooting mode, press the very bottom left button, it will change the display on the back to a darker color and you will be able to use your circular up, down, left and right buttons to select the shooting mode (It may show up as just a single square with an S in it). press the set button when that is highlighted and it will give you the option to select the single shot (the square with the s) continuous frame advance (looks like 3 pictures stacked) the timer and remote setting are also there. press set on the continuous frame advance and you are ready to rock at 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.

How do you use the continuous shoot function on canon ixus 70?

These instructions are for the IXUS 70, even though the category is PowerShot SD500/IXUS 700.

1. Press the down arrow (bottom of main control button)
2. Press the up or down button until you see the icon for continuous shooting, which looks like three squares overlaid on each other.
3. Shoot your pictures. As long as you keep the shutter button depressed, the camera will continue to shoot until the memory card is full.

To return to single frame shooting, follow steps 1. and 2. but select the single square in step 2.

Accessing Continuous Mode

Some details first...
  • The continous icon looks like multiple papers stacked on top of each other (in contrast the normal icon for single shot is a square box with an S in it so you can get it back to normal)
  • The camera takes shots at 1.5 frames per second, or about three frames every two seconds for image size of 2272x1704.
  • The shutter-release button has to be held down
  • Continuous is not available in HI image quality
  • Shooting will slow when memory buffer fills.
Setting to continuous...
  • Put your camera in P, S, A, or M mode.
    • I suggest P mode, this is for Program mode and does everything as Auto does, but allows you to override settings (except Aperture and Shutter).
  • Press the Menu button
  • Access the Continuous menu
  • Select the Continuous menu option, again looks like layered papers.
