Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Continous shooting mode

My camera is right out of the box. In full auto mode, the camera rarely shoots more than one picture in continuous mode. It has done it only twice despite many attempts. I followed the manual to change the setting to continuous. Is there something I have missed. I read the manual cover to cover. thanks

My camera takes pictures automaticlly really fast. Is there a setting that I should change to repair or stop it? Without turnig off the camera.


The camera shooting mode/drive mode has been changed to Continues advance which takes four pictures when the shutter is pressed and held. Or it could be on Multi Frame mode where it takes 9 pictures when the shutter is button is pressed once.

Here is a PDF manual that will help.

You will need to copy and past this in your browser window.

The link is good I'm using right now to determine the problem.

The following are two screen shots of page 45 of the manual describing what needs to be done to bring the camera back to single frame use.

How do I disable the flash on a D 70s so I can take natural light photos?


The flash is automatic when the camera senses low light while in the full automatic mode and many of the preset modes. If you want full control over the flash and the "look" of the pictures you need to move into the "creative zones" Unlike the little icons these will be marked with "M" for Manual, "AV" for Aperture Value, "TV" for Time Value or "P" for program. you are most likely shooting in full auto which is a little green rectangular box.

I have a brand new nikon coolpix s3000. it's on full-time auto focus. Any ideas?


You can change this in the menu while in shooting mode. This is from page 48 of the manual:

Choose how the camera focuses.

A (auto) M d (Shooting menu) M I Autofocus mode

A Single AF (default setting)

The camera focuses when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.

B Full-time AF

The camera focuses continuously until the shutter-release button is pressed down

halfway. Use with moving subjects. The sound of lens drive movement will be heard

while the camera focuses.

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.

Nikon D90 that does not want to shoot pictures


The camera may not be sensing that a lens is attached. Try removing the lens completely and then attaching it again securely.

How do you take continuous shots? I set it on the setting that says continuous shots but it only takes one picture. My friends also does the same


Continuous shooting is not available in the full Auto mode. You must select Manual mode (the camera silhouette with the M on it), or move the switch to the SCN (selected scene) position.

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.

“Shoot and Select” Modes


e “shoot and select” modes allows you to select an image out of a sequence of still pictures you have taken by depressing the shutter button and storing it. This is best for shooting moving objects. SHOOT & SELECT 1: Shoots a rapid succession of 4 still pictures by keeping the shutter button pressed. SHOOT & SELECT 2: Shoots a succession of still pictures by keeping the shutter button pressed. The Stylus 500 will continue to shoot until you take your finger off the shutter button or until the card is full. After shooting, you will have the option to immediately delete the pictures you do not wish to keep.
