"d5300 will not take some photos"

Just opened my d5300 and tried each lens I purchased with it and about every other photo or so will not snap. It looks clear to me through viewfinder and ready to take and it refuses. This is inconvenient.. What am I doing wrong here?

Hi Cassie,

Welcome to Nikonians!

Are you using flash?

The reason I ask, is the shutter will not release until the built-in Speedlight has fully recycled.

What exposure mode are you using?

Are you testing outdoors in daylight or indoors in low light?

Best Regards,
Marty

Check in your Custom Shooting menu (CSM) under autofocus, which may be a-1 and a-2 to see if the shutter release is set for focus or release. If it's set for focus, the shutter will not fire if the image is not in focus as the camera sees it.
