Having problems with your Canon EOS 30D Body Only Digital Camera ?

30D locks up and won't take pictures.

\015 After taking several pictures in Program mode, my 30D locks up and won't take pictures. "One shot" flashes in the top LCD window.Everything else is normal and I can't determine the cause. Eventually the camera starts working again. The problem seems to be intermittent.\015

Answers :

Are you taking photos of still or moving subjects? One shot is suitable for still subjects, someone sitting down or still life shots. The camera will balk at you if you are constantly panning or have moving items in the fiewfinder field of the focus points and it is set in one-shot mode.
\015\012try changing to AI Servo and see if the problem continues.
