Question about Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Shutter release I just purchased this camera and while I was taking a photo indoors I pressed the upflash button and eversince then every single button I press on the camera (including the off switch) sets off the shutter release. In addition to this problem I can no longer see though the view finder unless I am pressing the shutter release button and then I can momentarily see through the viewfinder. I have noticed that if I press the shutter release button, it does not allow autofocus and it appears to be taking photos continuously but none on recorded in the play mode. Please help!

Ive bought the camera M530 yesterday and it makes a ticking sound when switched on as if it is something to do with the smart capture. Should I be worried that something is wrong with the camera or is just...


Just purchased the M530 for my daughter for her Bday. Noticed the same soft ticking sound when the camera is turned on. And yes, I agree with other posts that this is annoying. The noise is probably coming from the fact that the camera is set to Continuous AF (auto-focus) mode. Here's the solution: STEP 1 - Press menu button (should take you to Capture screen). STEP 2 - Using the down-arrow button to scroll down to AF Control (Still). STEP 3 - Using the right-arrow button select Single AF. STEP 4 - Press OK button. Another screen will come up with the radio button selected on Single AF. Ticking sound should be gone by this point. STEP 5 - Press Mode button. STEP 6 - Select shooting mode (Smart Capture, Video, etc.) and Press OK button. Good Luck.

Nikon D90 only takes one photo even in continous high mode


Hi,

You have to set the drive mode to H for continuous High.

The button is on the top of the camera next to the LCD.
It has an icon of overlapping rectangles.
It sets S (single frame), L (continuous Low), H (continuous High), Self Timer and Remote Control.
Just press it again until S is shown to get back to single frame.

Time and date display


I have the same camera and the only way to do this is to first, Make sure you have set the date and time correctly on your camera. Take a picture or View picture you want date & time stamped. Press the circular 'Menu/Set' button Press down arrow to playback mode Press right arrow on 'text stamp' Choose whether to apply stamp to single or multiple photos Press 'Menu/set' to select photo to stamp. Choose which stamps to add. Date, time, age etc.. Press 'Menu/set' again and select 'Yes' in box. The only problem with this is that it will resize your photos to 3m, which can make them grainier if you took them at a higher res. Gillian

My camera will not take multiple shots


Ok, what you need to do is look at the top of your camera, around that smaller LCD screen. On the right side of the screen, you will see a button with three boxes stacked on top of each other.

You need to press that button until it displays the same icon in the TOP RIGHT corner of the smaller LCD screen right next to the button you are pressing.

That button switches the camera from Single shot mode to Multiple shot mode ( as well as a few other modes).

EOS 30D is slow to fire.


Are you sure you aren't in the delay setting in drive mode? This camera has 2 delay settings, one for 2 seconds between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo, and one with 10 seconds delay - often used when you want to be in the photo (e.g. self-portrait or group photo).

If you aren't in the delay mode, then I need to know more about your settings. What shooting mode are you using? What type of photo are you trying to take (portrait, landscape, sports)? Are you shooting indoors, outdoors, bright sunlight, overcast, etc.?

Use of macro digital feature


hi,let me just inform u that the macro mode is only for outdoors.So on the side of the camera u will find a sliding switch.Just slide it to the opposite direction to turn off the macro mode.Since u wanted to take pictures of jewelry pieces,turn on the flash if u have one and then take a closeup shot with good lighting conditions.If its too bright then use only the flash,if u r not satisfied with the quality then use only lights and then take a pic.Still face any prob plz get back to me.

Bright flash on caplio R3 digital camera


YES YES YES YES YES YES YES there is a solution if that is the r3 thing. There is a menu button and the menu button has four arrows around it right??? Yeah, well, press the arrow pointing west to change the flash's power. And if that doesnt work just press the up button instead and that should bring you to a menu or something where you can change what kind of picture the camera will take. At least, thats what i think...
