Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
Continuous shot 3 frames per second is not working on my nikon d80. Is there a setting that maybe isnt set correctly?
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.

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.
