Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens ?

Slow manual Shutter

\015 I have a Digital EOS and when I take pics in the auto setting, it works fine. When I switch to any of the manual settings, there is an almost 2 sec delay, followed by the normal shutter. I try to keep the Exp. at 0, but it doesn't seem to change anything. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you\015

Hi
Couple of things.
1.On the 'manual settings' the setting could be set to a very slow shutter speed. Which means the shutter will stay open londer to let in more light and close when the required light is taken in. You may notice this in Aperture priority as well as shutter and in low light even more so. You need to adjust the shutter speed, or aperture. You have not mentioned how the picture come out so it is a little harder to pin it down, but i suspect they are very washed out or very dark. If they are well exposed and sharp, you have no worries. You have the setting correct for the given subject and lighting.

2. You may have the timer set. Depending on your model of camera this may vary. The timer does not engage in full auto by default. The timer is normally shown on the scree as a little stopwatch like icon when engaged. A model number may help in narrowing down a solution shoul it not be the timer.

Shutter speed on the auto mode of my s1000 camera seems slow. how can it be increased in the auto mode? This is a Fuji camera and by the time I press the shutter button subjects have moved. I have set the camera back to the original factory settings and I can adjust the shutter speed in the manual position but in auto it seems really slow.


You need to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus before you press the rest of the way. This eliminates "shutter lag". ... Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

Dark exposure I have a Nkon D40x. Setting the selector to Auto, Shutter or Appature(SP) the image comes out dark. The historgram shows a spike that is totally contained in the first quarter of the screen. When I use the manual setting the image improve as the shutter speed was slowed down (1/80sec and ~7f the image improves). Any guess as to what is happening?


Check your ISO setting...should be between 100 to 400 for normal pictures.Did you change your exposure compensation setting to something other than "0"? Is the aperture ring on the lens set to the "A" position? ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

External Flash I set my Epson 3100z camera to manual mode and set up the camera for external flash. I manually set the shutter speed to 1/60 sec and the aperture to F4. I also set my SunPak flash to F4. My exposures seem pretty good. However when I review the various photo info's, the aperture reading is F5 or F4.8 not the F4 I set. Why is this? Anyone experienced this? The shutter speed are also not always what I set on the camera.

Shutter button won't work. I took photos yesterday and everything was fine but today there is no response when shutter button is pressed. I slid across to the video facility and the shutter button won't press on there either - it says standby - have I locked the shutter or something?
