Question about Cameras

1 Answer

1.)Shutter does not release 2.) How to continously (3 per sec) take Pics?

1.) The shutter of my Camera quit often does block quite often in the midst of any session , seemingly without any reason! pressing the release a few secondslater - it's doing it! That happens with any of my lenses! By the way I am using most often a QUANTARAY 18-125mm 1:3.5-5.6 D (digital lens!) What could cause that?? 2.) How can I get my Camera to shoot continuisly? What do I have to set "ON" and in which Menu or where? I can't find anything. But supposedly it can do 3 frames per second! I really would want to use that! But how?
Thanks for looking into that! Werner

Thats the shutter speed control, you can see if your problem lies there, to find the setting if you have one, use the maual and check the glossary for shutter,,, but from the problem you are describing i personally believe its a problem with the shutter itself, eighter the components are sticking or its shorting, in any case it will need servicing and replacement of parts. Contact you camera dealer or AN EXPERT in camera repairs, do not attempt repairs your self if you dont have any experience or a woking knowledge about it you will cause serious damages

Nikon D3100 shutter "problem"?


Are your pictures properly exposed and are they sharp or are your pictures degraded? Is that 1/3-second you describe a delay between the time you push the shutter release and the time the picture is taken or somthing else? Check to make sure you're in the proper shutter release mode (slider switch to right of the mode dial). Also, your self-timer may be turned on. Your camera allows you to set a 2 or 10 second delay from the menus. If it is set to 2 seconds and turned on, it might seem like a 1/3-second delay. If that doesn't help, you camera is covered by Nikon's warranty. Contact Nikon Service at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

I have my Olympus FE-160,the problem is whan I take pics,it came out all blurry and the color changes...am not sure whats going on?is there any way that can be fix?


HERE'S THE ANSWER TO YOUR PROBLEM:

The three possible culprits of your camera are the following:

1. Long Focal Length

2. Slow Shutter Speed

3. Wide Apertures


Here's what you've got to do:

1. Increase your shutter speed so that it is greater or equal to 1 over the focal length.

2. Attach the camera to a tripod to avoid camera shakes.

3. Keep your shutter speed to 1 / 60 - 1 / 125 when holding the camera in your hands.

4. Keep your aperture around f8.0, especially with along focal length.

5. In case, you buy another camera model, see to it that the camera is featured with image stabilization (IS) technology.


Thank you. Your problem is solved...

I am looking to learn how to set the camera to take a sequence of delayed shots..how do I do this..?


The camera shoots continuously while the shutter button is held down.

there are three options for it

Continuous(Approx. 4.0 img/sec)

Shooting AF (Approx. 1.1 img per secnd)

Shooting LV (1.2 images per secnd)
(Live View)



Press teh shutter button.
Use up and down buttons to select the shooting modes.
The camera will continue to reord continous images as long as the shutter button is held down.
The taking will cease when it is released.

Displays icons but won't register pictures


First make sure that you accidentally didn't turn off the screen by repeatedly pressing the DISP button to cycle it on and off. If that didn't fix it, and if your camera is less than 1 year old, call 1-800-OK-CANON to arrange free warranty repair.
If your camera is more than a year old, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

What is the range shutter speed?


The DiMAGE A2 controls shutter speed in the range of 30 sec. to 1/4000 sec. in 1/3 increments. (at bulb maximum 30 sec.) The speed, 1/4000 sec. is controlled only when the aperture is f5.6 or over in P and A mode. The highest speed in S and M mode is 1/2000 sec. The lower range depends on the set camera sensitivity. ISO800: 4 sec., ISO400: 8 sec., ISO200: 15 sec., ISO100 and ISO64: 30 sec.

Shutter Lag-Time


The G5 has a rather short shutter lag and a rather lengthy focus lag. So if you half depress the shutter release to focus, and then moments later fully depress the shutter release I expect you will find very little lag. But I would not expect a prosumer model to focus fast. hope this helps,
