Hello, my Canon 1000d wont take the picture at night just flash a bunch of times. It also says busy on the screen. what does this mean and how do you stop it from doing this?


This sounds like a flash configuration issue combined with the continuous shooting mode, which will take 3 pictures in rapid succession and display "busy" while the flash is recycling. For starters, switch it back to single shot mode. That's the button that looks like the stack of pages and the timer clock. Then turn off the flash. That's the icon with the flash lightning image with the bar through it.
You will probably need to adjust your ISO, shutter speed, and aperture setting to get a good low-light shot.

Hope this helps!

I cannot seem to get the flash to fire consecutively ,I have changed the batteries for lithium, and yet still one shot to the next shot is at least 7- 10 seconds before the flash will fire again. what to...


Hi windnenergy, It is the recycle of the batteries and, power setting of the flash. Lower power settings will allow us to shoot faster. So, check the power settings, run tests to see how long the flash recycles at lower power settings. You may find you do not need a full flash power shot.

Flash settings cannot be changed...


Check and make sure multi shot or continuous shot is not selected (/BRK button between shutter button and options dial). Flash settings cannot be used with either multi shot or continuous shot, took me forever to figure that out... LOL

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 camera has focus error. How to solve the problem?


Performance wise, the camera has a couple of niggles. Start up to first shot time is around a second, and shot to shot (without flash) is good with three shots (the top three or the last three in a sequence are captured) in around 1.5 seconds unless the camera needs to refocus ort the flash fires. Flash recharge is around five seconds and disappointingly, the camera locks up as the flash charges, which is a shame.

But, focusing becomes an issue in low light too, where the camera will hunt trying to key on the subject or just continually fail to focus. So, beware in low light. There was another focus niggle on smaller subjects in macro mode where the camera would simply refuse to focus on anything in the frame smaller than the central AF area, and no matter what you do. Thanks

How do you take continuous shots? I set it on the setting that says continuous shots but it only takes one picture. My friends also does the same


Continuous shooting is not available in the full Auto mode. You must select Manual mode (the camera silhouette with the M on it), or move the switch to the SCN (selected scene) position.

Coolpix L10 won't flash in flash or auto flash mode


If you have the BSS (Best Shot Selector - page 79 of manual)...turn on then the flash or auto flash is over ridden and will not work. This happen as the BSS feature allows you to hold down the shutter release button (one used to take pictures) and continually take pictres, compare them and only keep the best one. The need to take rapids shots can not wait for a flash to recharge and go off so the flash is disabled... among other things but is all explained in the manual. I hope this is all your problem is and not something worse.

Multiple flash firing


I would double check all your settings - even though you say it is on any flash setting, it sounds like it is using the nighttime flash setting (which does 2-3 rapid fire flashes).

Just go through every setting in the camera, and make sure that everything is set how you really want it, INCLUDING the daytime/nighttime, etc.

On the CAPTURE menu, check your adaptive light setting and make sure that you don't have it tweaked in some way to make the camera think EVERY picture is a nighttime picture.
I'd also check your "EV COMPENSATION" and "WHITE BALANCE", making sure those are set to "auto".

Hope that will work for you - good luck!
