Re: Shooting Speed Dropped

You can perform a Low Level Format of a memory card with this camera. Select Low Level Format under the following circumstances: - The continuous shooting speed has dropped. - The read/write speed of a memory card has dropped. If you perform a Low Level Format, the read/write speed of the memory card may recover, or the continuous shooting speed may improve. A Low Level Format may require 2 to 3 minutes with some memory cards.

R05 what it means in the Nikon D90


It is the buffer count for how many pics you can shoot in continuous mode.
Shooting in different formats (RAW, or Jpeg & sizes) affects the number.
Using a fast card also helps to speed up clear the buffer allowing you to shoot more frames at maximum speed.
Reading The Fine Manual is very helpful for queries such as these.

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.

Can u teel me what err (r) 04 meens o a nikon d80


HI.
Have you been taking pictures continuously?
As in continuous mode you can only capture about 7 raw files before the buffer is full and the shooting speed drops off a cliff.
You can this error message to indicates that your card is full and that influence the shooting speed.

Nikon d2hs continuous high shooting only shoots at 1 frame per second not 8.?


In order for it to shoot at the theoretically possible 8 fps, the shutter speed has to be aat it highest setting and the aperture wide enough as well as the media card has to be a fairly fast one as well
(fastest write speed you can afford) and use j[eg mode not RAW (NEF)

The vieo stops shooting after 30 secs when in HD


Your cards writing speed may be too slow to continue shooting past 30 sec. You should be using, at a minimum, a class 6 card.

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.

Continuous Shooting


must be something to do with the mode you are using like auto mode, manual mode P mode so on...havn't use anything else the the manual mode so do a hit and trial procedure. Also be sure to increase the shutter speed...

Sequential shooting modes


There are four sequential modes: Sequential shooting, High-speed Sequential shooting, AF Sequential shooting and Auto Bracketing. Sequential shooting modes can be selected from the CAMERA menu: Sequential shooting: A maximum of 11 frames can be shot sequentially at approximately 1.7 fps in HQ mode. Focus, Brightness (exposure) and White Balance are locked at the first frame. High-speed Sequential shooting: A maximum of 4 frames can be shot sequentially at approximately 3.3 fps. Focus, Brightness (exposure) and White Balance are locked at the first frame. AF Sequential shooting: Focus is individually locked for each frame. The AF Sequential shooting speed is slower than for normal sequential shooting. Auto Bracketing: When Auto bracketing is set, exposure is changed automatically for each frame when you start shooting. The exposure differential can be selected in the menus. Focus and white balance are locked at the first frame.
