There is, as people have been looking for, a way to count the total number of exposures on your E-1. May work on other bodies, but I don't have those to try]. A. Firmware readout on E-1 [may be the same on all E Series bodies]: 1. Turn the E-1 on 2. Open the storage media door 3. Press down the Playback Mode button and OK button at the same time You will then get the firmware info displayed on the LCD monitor. B. More "internal info" [ALL E series bodies?]: There's a neat little trick to know some statistics about your E-body: 1: open the CF card door 2: press "play" and "ok" at the same time 3: press the arrows in this order: up; down; left; right 4: fully depress shutter once 5: press up arrow, and now there is magic on the screen pressing the arrows, you can go through some pages a: firmware details of attached goodies b: R= shutter release count (with my camera it was obviously reset during service), S= flashes fired, M= pixel mapping (mapped pixels?), U= SSWF ? At your own risk of course...

Why does my olympus sz30mr take ages to take a pic. Says its busy. Iso is set to -1.3 will this slow the shutter speed under low light conditions

Be aware ti takes a camera the same time to save a camera, as it needs to shoot the picture. So if you shoot at 4 seconds, it will take at least 4 seconds to save the picture. When you are shooting under normal conditions, you won't notice it, because a shot from 1/30 of a second is saved in 1/30 of a second after you shot, It becomes noticeable when you use shutter times from half a second or longer, but it is absolute normal for any digital camera.

My Pentax SPII shoots blank images

You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.

When camera is turned on the monitor is black, takes black pictures

hi..
A stuck shutter is common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter.....

thank u

Adjust shutter speed

On most indoor shots the shutter speed will normally be 1/30 if you need or want it to be faster than that the only way to do that with this camera is to set the ISO to a higher value. Page 29 of your user manual explains how to set the ISO value for the camera to allow for faster shutter speeds.

Fire a vivitar283 flash at the END of an exposure with the Olympus C-770

You need to set the camera for second-curtain flash

First curtain = fires when the shutter opens.
Second curtain = fires when the shutter closes.

Long Delay between pressing shutter and picture being taken

If the camera has been on standby- then older models can take a time to 'wake-up' this is a battery saving device. Check you manual - it may be a variable function. Failing that, simply tap the shutter release from time to time with the camera on this keeps it 'live' but will ofcourse 'down' the batteries sooner.
