Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera

R06 - buffering for hours - why!

Hi, I was shooting for the first time in JPEG format using the self timer mode. I must have pressed the shutter too often and now r06 comes up. I've left the camera off overnight, and on for 2 hours this morning and after that I can get one shot off but then it goes back to r06. Can I reset the camera to stop the buffering process? Please help!

How do I use self-timer

Press the Shooting Mode button (just to the left of the viewfinder, marked with overlapping rectangles) and rotate the command dial until the self-timer icon (sort of like a one-handed clock) is displayed in the control panel.

Frame the photograph and focus.

For best results, cover the viewfinder.

Press the shutter release button all the way down to start the self-timer.

You can cancel the self-timer by selecting another shooting mode, or by turning off the camera.

Custom Settings #24 lets you change the delay to 2, 5, 10, or 20 seconds.

How do i use the burst mode on my nikon d3000? Thank you.

Press the Info button to bring up the Information display. Press the <i> button to place the cursor in the information display. Highlight the current release mode and press OK. Select the Continuous mode and press OK.

This lets you shoot at up to about three frames a second, depending on the shutter speed, noise reduction settings, and autofocus settings. You cannot use this with the flash.

The camera will shoot pictures as long as you hold down the shutter release button (until the buffer and/or memory card fills up). As you shoot, the viewfinder will show rNN where NN is the approximate number of further pictures you can shoot until the buffer fills up. In JPEG mode you should be able to take a hundred pictures before the buffer fills. The number will be smaller in RAW.

In AF-S and AF-A, the camera will not shoot the next picture until focus is acquired, so when shooting moving subjects or panning the camera, you may not get full speed. Even in AF-C, the camera may "hiccup" occasionally.

When i try and take a picture the camera continues adjusting and r06 appears in the screen on the top of the camera


Could this be the auto focus?
Try this, put what you want to focus on in the center of the screen, in the [ ] part.
Lightly press the shutter button and keep the pressure on.
The camera will focus and then wait.
If you now press the shutter button all the way down the camera will take the picture.

The r06 just means the camera can take 6 more pictures quickly before the picture buffer fills up.
Unless you are using the fast drive mode this will not matter to you.

I hope this helps.

Once a picture has been taken you can't take another immediately - camera says busy and the shutter fires as much as five or ten seconds later!

I suspect that you're using a file format that takes longer to write, such as a TIFF or other format that's adding compression to the image. ENsure that the file format is RAW or standard JPEG, which write fairly quickly. The other issue could be the buffer size on the camera. The buffer is built-in memory that allows the camera to store images while still shooting. The images are then taken from the buffer and writes them to the card. SLR cameras, for example, tend to have large buffers and can shoot more images without writing to the card. Shooting ONE image and having to wait for the "busy" indicator to turn off seems a bit extreme, so it this isn't an old camera or a very "cheap" camera (sub $100), than you may have an issue with the buffer memory and will want to go to a camera repair shot and have them test. Check the file format first though- I suspect that you are using a format that's more write-heavy in comparison to standard RAW and JPEG files.

Another thing that you also need to consider when using Point and Shoot cameras is that they tend to be "one chip wonders". This means that instead of having multi-chip cameras (Such as digital SLR's) that can do multiple tasks at one time (shoot, write, flash, focus, exposure...) there's only ONE chip that does all of this. If you depress the shutter release half way, it keeps the chip "hot" for shooting a photo and your performance will improve slightly.

I wanna take a picture but i dont know how to make the camara wait 10 sec before it takes the picture


Self-timer shooting:

This function lets you take pictures using the self-timer.
Fix the camera securely on a tripod for self-timer shooting. This function is useful for taking
pictures when you want to be included in the photograph.

1 Select [ON], and press Z.
2 Press the shutter button fully to
take the picture.
• Pressing the shutter button halfway
locks the focus and exposure.
• The self-timer lamp lights for
approximately 10 seconds, then starts
blinking. After blinking for approximately
2 seconds, the picture is taken.
• To stop shooting while in n mode,
press the shutter button fully again.
• To cancel the self-timer, press Z.
• The self-timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.

• If sequential shooting is attempted in self-timer mode, the camera shoots 5
frames at most regardless of the setting.

Hope my info fixes your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,

Nikon D80 Camera

During shooting, or when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the number of images that can be stored in the memory buffer at current settings is shown on the exposure-count displays in the control panel and viewfinder. "r06" indicates that six images can fit in the camera's buffer, "r08" would indicate eight frames. Any other number could be displayed as well. Burst mode is used when you want to hold down the shutter button and continuously shoot. You are probably shooting in burst mode and your buffer is full, set the camera to single shot and see if that helps.
