When I press shutter button it just continuously is focusing

\015 I've been at a class today and using the camera all day, and now when you try and move your exposure dial and then push on the shutter button it continuosly is shuttering and not focusing in on any subject just a continuous sound. Weird\015\012This is in the manual setting, when I turn it to Automatic it will eventually let you push down enough to take the picture but in Manual you can't even push long enough to take the shot, it keeps clicking away as it seems to be focusing\015

Using my Canon XSi/450D, I'm interested in doing High Dynamic Range photography. But I can't discover how to make the automated shutter-speed range multi-shot (3 for the 450D) AEB work. I've gone into the menu and select and change the AEB range ( -2V) and pressed "set." Working from the "AV" in creative mode, I then set up my first shot with focus and ISO, and shoot. Now what? When I press the shoot button, an ordinary photo is captured, and if I continue to press the button additional cap

I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus).

And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi

My ViviCam T328 shutter function will not work properly. There are 2 functions to the shutter button: The pre-focus and the actual shutter function that takes the picture. Every time the pre-focus is pressed, the camera will take the picture immediately without focusing at all. And the other function does nothing at all when pressed.

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.

I had my D5000 for a month now, recently i noticed something with my camera. looking though the viewfinder only, whenever i focus (half pressing the shutter button), the view from the viewfinder moves up, and without making the shot and letting go the half-pressed shutter button, the view from the viewfinder then moves down to its original position. These movements are noticeable just through the viewfinder with the VR on. But without the VR, the view from the viewfinder makes no movement. i don

Shutter button on my digital rebel xt stopped working. I can press down far enough (halfway) to get it to focus but then it won't click all the way down and release.
