Question about Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fuji s2pro (2 units)

I press the shutter release and somtimes it fires 7 frames in a row without recording any images. Every two or three frames I shoot it gives me "err" blinking. Still records images but cannot make any adjusments as the screen is continously on "err". Have to shut camera off and turn on again to get the screen back to normal. Shoot again, "err" again, shut off again, turn on again. It has happened to both my s2pros. Please help. Is this fixable?

    Thank you Phillip, I have tried different memory cards (still the same result). The thing is sometimes the cameras go without a problem and then later (a few hours)or another day the problem presents itself again, would this still be shutter assembly?
    Contacts are clean, batteries are new. I am a destination wedding photographer spending 6 months out of the year in Costa Rica and unfortunately don't have a Fuji repair here. I wanted to get some feedback before sending it off to the US for repair. Thank you again, we might be close.

Your shutter mechanism reached its life expectancy, (5000 shots).

    Here in my country i always replace the shutter assembly mechanism with metal, the original parts are made of plastic and can easily be broken or has a life expectancy of 5000 shots, and continous and high speed shots shortens its life more! I am making my own revised spare parts here, believe it!! that is the most common problem of digistills cameras today. But the more expensive digicam of course are better, they are already made of metal alloys, the heavier the better. yes this is fixable, but the spare parts are costly..

    By the way have you tried to replace or use another memory card? I have encountered the same problem and defective or corrupted memory card causes the problem.

    Since you're a professional fotografer, you need emergency backup unit. never rely on single one, even top of the line unit brakes down when you need it most!A cheap and simple easy to use digicam will work fine. Another solution but looks like crazy: Shoot in inverted mode! Take a shot, unit upside down! this will lessen the burden on shutter curtain. ( You need to do this since you are in a compromised situation, i am Just trying to help. [:0)
    Further,Be aware of the camera settings when problem exists, settings may have something to do with the existence of problem. Mostly the shutter speed around 800 or higher, thats outside shooting with the bright sunlight! Flash mode or inside shooting uses slower shutter speed. I know fotografy very well, it's one of my hobbies.

    Sorry pal, you have two unit already, I forgot. But did you acquire it on the same time? Digital camera parts has life expectancies, especially shutters and motors. I advice not to acquire two unit at the same time, make at least six months apart.

I'm afraid this camera does not have any possibility to do manual focus. Not with stills and for sure not with recording video.
The only thing to help you focus on a certain object, that is not in the centre of the frame, is the focus lock. You have to point at the object you want to focus on, then press focus lock and than you can choose the composition you want to shoot. Focus lock occurs when you press the shutter release button half.
For video, the manual only says put the rail on the film camera and press the shutter release button once. The video will be stopped after 12 seconds. (or when you press the button again.
That is all.

When i press the shutter release button ,there is a message in the display 'press shutter release again' but image is not recorded

hi dear queen studio, youur D60 have the secuence motor damaged and need to be replaced the ( SQ base plate unit).Contact a Nikonservice station to do.

Is there a timer on this camera?

Yes there is .......page 47 of the manual shows you how .... its an option on the drive mode in the startup menus.


Used for self-portraits, the self-timer will delay the release of the shutter for approximately ten seconds after the shutter-release button is pressed. The self-timer is set on section 1 of the recording menus (p. 44).

With the camera on a tripod, compose the picture so the subject is within the focus frames. Press the shutter-release button partway down to lock the exposure and focus (1). Press the shutter-release button all the way down to begin the countdown (2).

Because focus and exposure are determined when the shutter-release button is pressed, do not stand in front of the camera when taking a self-timer image. Always confirm the focus with the focus signals before beginning the countdown
(p. 25).

The self-timer is counted down on the monitor. During the countdown, the self-timer lamp on the front of the camera (3) will start to blink and is accompanied by an audio signal. A few seconds before the exposure, the self-timer lamp will blink rapidly. The lamp will glow steadily just before the shutter fires.

To stop the countdown, slide the zoom lever to the left or right. The self-timer drive mode is reset to single-frame advance after the exposure. The audio signal can be turned off in section 2 of the setup
menu (p. 83).

No images show up on screen after shutter releases

If the images are recorded on the card but not shown immediatly after the shutter release, press MENU, go with the control dial to the recording menu (the one symbolised with a camera) and press AF, the center knob.
On page 1, the third item controls the instant playback, it can be set to OFF, probably your setup, 2, 5 or 10 seconds.

Continuous mode

i think the frame rate is 1.3 frames per second.

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.

  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.

Problem in camera or film roll??

Hey msenile,
It is possible that each frame would have image data imprinted without and image being exposed. This could be caused by the shutter not opening while the camera still exposing the film internally with the image data recorded. It is unlikely that this bad film since the emulsion covers the entire surface of the film and if it were bad the image data would not be recorded either. Another cause of this but very unlikely is every frame was somehow extremely underexposed. This could happen if the camera is set to manual and the light level is low and the shutter speed is set to a fast speed and the aperture is set to a very small aperture. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.


Shutter Speed

Two things to try, 1) The release button is a two stage process. Pushing the release button 1/2 way allows the camera to focus on the subject. It needs a few milli-seconds to do this. A full depress releases the shutter, but it you don't allow the camera to focus, things get messed up.

2) Holding a camera of this type with outstretched arms is a sure way to get poor shots. I use my Fuji S5000 with the viewfinder rather than the LCD display for framing shots just like I was using an SLR/DSLR
