Question about Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D 200 only 2 frames per shutter press

The most amount of frames I can get when I hold down shutter release now is 2. I get 2 frames then the camera stops until I depress the button again.
I have tried it in C, S and M modes as well as CL and CH modes and at different resolutions and with different CF cards. Camra is about 2 years old and works fine other wise.

How do I fix the problem?
Thanks Mike McGrath

Error. press shutter release button again


most likely cause is failure of the motor in the SQ unit on the side of the mirror box. This ***** the shutter, raises the mirror, and operates the aperture unit. They're made in China, motors are **** This is a very very common problem, and the part is always on back order at Nikon. As Nikon has announced that they are going to stop selling parts - to anyone - in a couple of months you are probably better off sending it to them. Be prepared for a bill a little less than $200.

also if you pressed down really ******* the release to get it to fire, you may also have broken the release switch

How do i set it so it will shoot 3fps


You can do this in continues mode go here

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.

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.

Trying to figure out how to use the timer on my Nikon Coolpix S570


Press the self-timer button (left of OK).

Press up or down to choose either two second or ten second delay.

Frame the picture and press the shutter release halfway to set focus and exposure.

Press the shutter button the rest of the way. The self-timer starts, the remaining number of seconds shows on the display, and the self-timer lamp blinks.

After the picture is taken, the self-timer reverts to OFF.

To cancel the self-timer, press the shutter release button again.

Fuller details can be found in the manual under "Taking Pictures with the Self-timer."
