You may need your camera cleaned. If you have taken more than about 5000 pictures with it or if you have been eating at some point and taken pics without washing your hands it could be that your shutter button is getting stuck. Some settings are set for continuous shooting and as long as you have you finger on the shutter button the camera will continue to take pictures

Can the camera sp-800UZ take rapid shots pics with flash going off every pic taken


In short, no. As with all flashes, the capacitor takes a while to recharge (via power from the low voltage battery which is amplified to many thousands of volts in the capacitor) between each shot. How long exactly depends upon how far it's discharged each time, so for close-up objects which fill the frame and need little flash, the discharge will be relatively low and you may get a few shots off in a row, and for distant objects using a more powerful flash discharge it may totally discharge with each shot.

The bigger and more powerful the flash unit, the better it will perform in that respect which is why professional external flashguns are big, bulky and cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. A built-in flash such as on your camera is a compromise solution and is not intended for heavy use. More advanced cameras may have their own built in pop up flashes to take close up snapshots, but for anything else have connectors to enable the use of more powerful external units.

When I take a pic the speed to take another pic is slow. Takes about 3 to 5 sec's. how can I make it faster pic one after another, thanks


there are 2 ways.
one is to get a memory card having a very high writing speed. They are classified as Class 1,2,3,4,5,6. An ultra class 6 card will do fine.
Second is to compromise on the photo quality. Keep the photo size low. suppose if your camera can take 10mp shots. You can customize it to 5mp. File size becomes slow and so good writing speed.
During night times photos with flash takes some time to shoot. That depends upon the camera's processing speed.

My camera stops when I try to take foto. What I need to do?


the focus is probley not focused and the camera has a program to prevent u taking pics when its not focused or is focusing at the time u press the button.
( and its a stupid concept) or if u been taking many pics within a short time like a pic every 2 secs ur memory card speed may not be able to keep up with the pics being downloaded to it. temporaily making it so the camera will not take pics untill the others are on the card.

make sure u partaly press down the picture button so the camera will go into auto focus mode. when it beeps ( most cameras beep) u can take the shot.

There is a delay from when I push the button to take a pic and the actual pic of a second maybe. How to get pic in the moment?


The delay is caused by the flash charging. Put the camera in Program mode (P on your dial). This is similar to Auto, but you can turn off the flash. Press the button with the lightning bolt by it until you see the same icon but with a slash through it in your LCD screen.

Now keep in mind taking pictures this way will often result in blurry pictures because you're overiding both the Autofocus (by pushing all the way down on the shutter instead of first half way), and the flash (you may need to keep the camera extra steady in low light situations).

Fuji s700 my flash is not popping up on auto and my camera is taking all dark pics


The flash on my S700 stopped popping up too. But I made a spring about 3/4 inch in diameter by 3/4 inch high with about 1 3/4 loops. I glued it right under the flash. It works quite well now.

Err CF


TRy and reformat the CF card through the camera. Youll lose the pics for sure but you cant see them anyway. You can also check for bent pins in the CF slot. Sometimes if you shut down the camera in mid write to the card, itll mess up the cards FAT (file directory)

Rebel Xt Sometimes when I try to take a pic it will not work!


one of my cameras does that. I shorted it out by using a non-compatible flash attachment. might need to take it in for repair. works fine without the flash though.

Crappy pictures


Describe wierd - this word means nothing. White flash images are over exposed- so reduce the ISO setting to a lowers number if the camera allows it. or Reduce power of the flash. The easiest way to do this is to put layers of tissue of the light reducing the intensity until you get it about right.
