Hey there timdjones7, the camera will only shoot 3 fps when placed in Continous Shooting Mode. You can set this via the dial controls on top of your camera. Rotate it to the little icon that looks like a man running. Now you are set to go. Have fun!

Can my nikon e5700 shoot video?


Yes, with limits. It can shoots sixty seconds of video at about fifteen frames per second. See the "Making Movies" section beginning on page 77 of the manual.

My D90 won't shoot the 4 frames per second. Is something turned off that I can't figure out?


The 4 frames per second shooting speed really only applies when you're shooting on manual focus. If you're not shooting a well lit scene or using an off-brand lens your camera will take a bit to auto-focus on your subject. Also if you're using the on-board flash, your camera will take a few seconds to recharge and fire again for the next picture.

How do i set it so it will shoot 3fps


You can do this in continues mode go here

You set this at:

MENU > CAMERA > Release mode > Continuous > OK.
You get one shot with one press of the shutter button BUT, if you hold the shutter button down you get 3 frames per second.

Nikon d2hs continuous high shooting only shoots at 1 frame per second not 8.?


In order for it to shoot at the theoretically possible 8 fps, the shutter speed has to be aat it highest setting and the aperture wide enough as well as the media card has to be a fairly fast one as well
(fastest write speed you can afford) and use j[eg mode not RAW (NEF)

Continuous shot 3 frames per second is not


There are several possibilities.

If you're using the flash, the flash isn't going to charge that fast.

If your shutter speed is slower than a third of a second, you're obviously not going to get three frames per second.

If the camera is set on AF-C and the subject is moving, the camera may be having trouble tracking it.

If you're shooting RAW and have a slow memory card, the buffer will fill up quickly and slow you down. Try it with JPEG and see if it makes any difference.

If you have the exposure delay mode (custom setting #31) turn on, the camera will wait about 0.4 seconds before shooting, and this applies even in continuous mode.

Check all of the above. Set the camera to Manual exposure mode. Turn off the autofocus. Set the image quality to JPEG Basic. Set the camera to Continuous 3 fps. Now, press and hold down the shutter release button for five seconds. Does the camera take about fifteen pictures?

If you've checked all of these and it still won't do it, post an additional comment here and we can go from there.

My eos40d on sports mode is not shooting at its proper speed at 6.5 frames per second. it shoots 2 frames per second and the piture cones out orange and not focus I only have this camera four weeks any...


6.5fps is only the manufacturer's indicative maximum. The camera will not always perform at this speed when conditions aren't suitable (too dark, for example). In Sports Mode, the camera decides the correct shutter speed for that scene. If it's not a very bright day, shutter speed has to be lowered (slow) to compensate for the lack of light. This results in a lower frame per second.

If you want to test the max fps, set your camera on Tv, and set the speed to 1/1000+ on a bright sunny day. Set the Drive Mode to AI Focus or AI Servo. If at 1/1000th of a sec, the Aperture value blinks in the viewfinder, you don't have enough light. Increase the ISO. You should be able to achieve 6.5fps. That's my experience anyway. Good luck.

My canon xsi digital camera is not functioning the way it should.


This is normal for an XSi. What might be causing this:
-Picture setting producing huge picture files (RAW vs JPEG) -SD card not of same class, try using a faster card, such as a Class 6 or 10

How do I figure out actuations on my camera?


Pre-PMA 2004: Canon today announced the impressively specified EOS-1D Mark II which features a new 8.2 megapixel CMOS sensor, it can shoot at just over eight frames per second and has a 40 frame JPEG image buffer (20 frames in RAW mode). This means that shooting at full resolution at full speed the camera is buffering 69 megapixels per second (or 100 MB/sec). Other changes include the addition of a USB port, an SD slot, the removal of the external white balance sensor as well as some subtle body styling changes.

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.
Please rate as FixYa! ThankYa!
