I don't know what you are doing - mine shoots continuously with no problems. There is nothing to set other than to set the shooting mode.
I have noticed that some memory cards are so slow it doesn't allow continuous mode. I recently replaced mince ith 16G class 6 cards and they work fine.

HOW DO I SET MY CAMERA TO AUTO FOCUS


The D90 has three different autofocus modes. In the AF-S mode it will not shoot until it has focused. In the AF-C mode it will shoot when you press the shutter release button even if has not focused. In the AF-A mode the camera switches between the AF-S and AF-C modes so either can apply.Also, bear in mind that the camera doesn't really know what you're taking a picture of. It may focus on something other than your subject. If you're in the single-area AF mode then you control which of the eleven focus points the camera uses. In any of the dynamic-area AF modes the camera decides.For full details on how the various modes work, please consult your manual. You might also check out the Nikon D90 video tutorial.

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.

Flash witeout


Hi there, you mentioned continuous shooting right. Your mean Sequence mode? One click and 7- 12 continue image sequence wise? If its then the problem is, your camera battery is not good now. He is not able to give required power supply to you camera flash. When few snaps done after the he loss his battery power & flash power going under(-) & your camera motor going slow, that's why shutter not open and close proper time. And the final result is whiter & whiter images. Hope you understand, what i am saying. So change the battery & buy a new original battery.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

How do I get my nikon d40 to take Black white pictures?


You CAN!!! shoot in b/w with a d40, the only thing is you can't shoot in auto mode it has to be manual , aperture priority, or shutter prioirity. Go into menu - shooting mode - optimize image. you'll find it in there.

Problems taking pictures with nikon d40


Chances are good that it's not your camera, but your lens. In a darker atmosphere, you need a fast lens, meaning you need a lens that has a wide aperture (1.4 to 2.8) I'm guessing you're using a lens thats' 3.5 or larger. (Yes, the larger apertures have the smaller numbers)

If your camera was spending all it's time moving in and out trying to focus, it's probably because there was not enough light for the camera to distinguish a focal point. Same thing happens when you shoot a solid blue sky. No focal point.

Help me understand by telling me what lens you're using and what settings you were using on the camera.
