#3. "RE: Would not take picture" In response to In response to 1 Tue 06-Nov-12 08:26 AM by Caroleen
My setting was on Manual - Aperture 5.6, Shutter 1/250, ISO 1000, indoors with a flash. I took probably 20 pictures and then when I pressed the shutter button, nothing. It wouldn't focus, wouldn't take the picture at all. I moved the camera and tried to take a picture - nothing. It wouldn't do anything. I turned it off and turned it back on and I was able to take a few pictures - after that it went right back to taking no pictures. The focus dot did not come on but the camera did not even try to focus. You know it makes that hunting sound for focus and it didn't even do that. I probably am not using the exact terms for everything but when I pressed the shutter release it wouldn't do anything at all. I do have about 900+ photos on that memory card (32G). I was reading last night that sometimes some cameras have a hard time storing more than 900 pictures. Don't know if that was the problem but it was annoying because I missed some of the most important times of the party like blowing out the candle, opening a certain present. It was annoying to say the least. Thanks for any help.
