Continuous High (CH) Shutter Mode on Getting Two Frames

Used high-speed burst mode (CH) just last week. Don't know what setting I've changed. Now when I click the shutter, it only shoots two frames and stops. What simple thing am I missing? Thansk.

    Finally figured it out. Somehow I had hit the Bracketing button and must have also turned one of the dials at the same time - turning bracketing on.

    I had a similar problem, accidentally turning on Bracketing, a couple of years ago.

    This button is in the wrong place for me.

    Turned off Bracketing and everything works fine now.

My camera should be able to take 7 frames per second but everytime I hold down the shutter, my camera focuses and takes a single frame. How can I fix this so that I am able to do the 7 frames per second?


It helps if you let use know what make and model of camera but normally if is a setting for a switch you need to move to burst mode.
Make sure your memory card rated at a high speed to handle the burst mode.

How to use continuous shooting on canon powershot sx40


Set your camera to high speed continuous shooting, track the action, and just before the peak press and hold the shutter release button. The camera will take a series of pictures and hopefully one of them will catch the action at its peak.
If you're asking how to set the camera for high speed continuous shooting, Turn the mode dial to SCN, press the FUNC/SET button, select the overlapping rectangles, and press the DISP button. Full details are in the "High-Speed Continuous Shooting" section of the manual (page 74 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download one here.

Set the mode dial to SCN and the "H" with the overlapping rectangles.

D3000 -How to use the burst mode?


If the shooting information is not displayed in the monitor, press the info button. Press the <i> button to place the cursor in the information display. Use the direction arrows to highlight the current release mode and press OK. Choose Continuous release mode (the overlapping rectangles).

In this mode the camera will take approximately three frames per second as long as the shutter release button is held down. The speed will be slower with slower shutter speeds, and eventually you'll fill up the memory buffer and then the memory card.

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.

Nikon D60 Digital SLR--Slow Shutter Speed


Your're probably using a flash with TTL disabled. So 1/200 is the highest sync possible with that kind of flash. Did you try removing the flash off the body and setting faster shutter speeds?

Continuous shooting


hey man. Im not sure how new you are but basically i think your problem is you need to decrease the shutter speed to around 1/200-1/250 of a second and increase the apeture to around f10/12 and see if that works. If your operating at a high shutter speed on manual mode then you might not be letting enough light in to produce a clear image which is why your gettin a blank screen. Hope this helps :)

Continuous mode


i think the frame rate is 1.3 frames per second.

Issue:
How do I set Continuous Shooting?
Solution: Setting Continuous Shooting mode PowerShot SD750 and SD1000.

Continuous Shooting In this mode, the camera shoots continuously while the shutter button is held down. Recording ceases when the shutter button is released. In addition, under the following conditions, continuous shooting can occur at a consistent interval until the SD card is full*.
  • A resolution and compression combination other than 145.gif and 129.gif is selected.
    * If continuous shooting suddenly stops, the SD card may be full.
Continuous shooting is available in all modes except 171.gif[AUTO], stitch_assist_icon.gif[Stitch Assist], coloraccentdropper.gif[Color Accent] and colorswapdropper.gif[Color Swap].
To set Continuous Shooting
  1. Press the cont_icon.gifbutton to display cont_icon.gif.

    cont_menu.gif
  2. Shoot the image.

    The camera will continue to record successive images while the shutter button is fully pressed. Recording will cease when the shutter button is released, the card is full or the card does not support a write speed to allow continuous shooting to continue.
To Cancel Continuous Shooting
  1. Press the cont_icon.gif button twice to display single_icon.gif.
caution_a70.gifTo enhance the continuous shooting performance when you suspect the speed has dropped, you are recommended to format the SD card in the camera (Low Level Format) after you save all its images to your computer. note_icon_a70.gif
  • The interval between shots may lengthen slightly when the camera's built-in memory fills.
  • If the flash is firing, the interval between shots will lengthen to accommodate the flash's charging requirements.

Shutter speed won't go over 5 frames a sec. on d300


Even if your camera is rated at shooting more than five continuous frames at a time, those are stored in a memory buffer in the camera, when the buffer is full the camera writes the images to your flash memory card. How fast the memory card can accept the data will determine who fast space is made available in the buffer for a sixth or seventh shot.

The main limitation on how many images can be shot in continuous mode is based on the storage capacity of the memory buffer and also how fast images can be written to your inserted memory card.

So, the higher the resolution the image the more space it takes in the memory buffer. Should you shoot in a smaller resolution you should be able to shoot more frames continuously. However, there are a few variables involved. If the Camera is preset at the factory to not store any more than five images no matter what the resolution than there is no way around this encumbered feature. And, or the speed at which the memory card you use can accept written data will also decide how fast the buffer is cleared for new data.

The highest speed flash memory conforms with Version 6 and has a write speed of 188x.

So, the things to double check is if a limitation is built into your camera of five images and no more than five no matter what the resolution. This is not uncommon. The second is the speed at which data can be cleared from the buffer and written to the memory card, less common but a newer standard now that faster flash memory cards are becoming available.

Now, all that being said, There are 'firmware' updates released from time to time that make adjustments to camera features than can change these variables

Most Nikons use Compact Flash so see if you can get a high speed card that is version 6 compliant. But, first, check the sony support site for your camera and see if 5 is the limit no matter what. And if so, see if there is a firmware update under downloads at the support site that increases the number of shots that can be stored in buffer while being written to the flash memory card.

I have a client wtih a D60 who when she switched over to 133x Compact Flash was able to shoot more frames faster in continuous mode.

Please don't hesitate to use the comment text box below for any further assistance, such as the support page at Sony for your camera if you don't have in in yoru manual. Or any information you may need regarding shooting in high speed mode and what format to use. Most Pros that consult with me are using JPEG uncompressed. If you have questions please provide more detail on how you have your camera setup and under what conditions you are shooting in when attempting to capture more frames per continuous mode shotting.

Worldvet
