I will need more info on the settings you are using. It might be that the camera is in a specific mode which is not allowing you to take continuos shots.

D80 High Speed Continuous Shooting Doesn't Work


I assume that your camera will shoot in continuous mode, but only slowly. The two main reason for this is memory buffer overload due to your memory card not being able to accept data quickly enough or insufficient battery power. When you have a slow memory card, the buffer circuit in your camera retains data until the card accepts it, but if so much data comes in so quickly that it exceeds the buffer's capacity, the camera will slow down until enough buffer space becomes available to accept more data. For example, when I first got my D90 (I use a D800 now), I tried to take video and the picture and sound would not stay in sync. with the 35 Mbs cards that were the fastest available at that time. When Sandisk developed a 45 Mbs card, I no longer had the problem. High speed cards are now available at 60 Mbs, 90 Mbs 120 Mbs and faster and those speeds will allow data to transfer from your camera's buffer so quickly that the buffer will never fill up and your camera will not slow down.

How do I set camera to shoot on continuous?


Press the shooting mode button in shooting mode to display the shooting-mode
selection menu and set the shooting menu to Continuous.
Note:The maximum frame rate with continuous shooting may vary, depending upon the current image mode setting and the memory card used.

Inadvertanly set delay and can't figure out how to get it back to the original setting.


Repeatedly press the shooting mode button on the upper-right side of the camera (marked with overlapping rectangles) to select the desired shooting mode. If that doesn't work, hold down the button and turn the main command dial (on the back) to cycle through the modes.

The available modes are Single frame (letter "S" in a rectangle), Continuous (overlapping rectangles), Self-timer (one-armed clock), Delayed remote (self-timer above remote), and Quick-response remote (remote).

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 Nikon D80 won't shoot multiple pictures when in sports mode.


Please read page 36 in the D80 manual. What you are looking for is just down from the top, "Continous".

I don't know how to set the Nikon D300 for fast picture shooting.


Setting it to portrait mode should do it. Hold down the shutter button, it should be working. I'm not overly familiar with nikons, but otherwise it'll be in a menu mode if you switch it to a more manual setting. Probably under shooting mode. Set it to continuous shoot

I have a d 80 nikon and encounter following problem. when i press the shutter-release button i am getting following message error 07. I then pressed again the shutter release button. The same error...


I dont think this is actually an error but,
the "07 is just telling you that the camera is in Raw shooting mode and in that mode you can shoot 7 shots one after the other (with continuous shooting mode on) before the buffer gets full.

See page 140 of the manual and also read about RAW mode settings on your camera.

Cheange the setting from RAW and try taking a pic to see that your "error" goes away.

I have nikon d40, on continuous mode, auto, it doesn't shoot continuously. also, most of the time, it focuses but not shooting... please help.


I don't know what you are doing - mine shoots continuously with no problems. There is nothing to set other than to set the shooting mode.
I have noticed that some memory cards are so slow it doesn't allow continuous mode. I recently replaced mince ith 16G class 6 cards and they work fine.

I want to know how to set up the Nikon D80 for continuous shooting because just press pressing the button?


Set the release mode to Continuous. Then the camera will take pics as long as the shutter release is held down... until the buffer fills.
