"New owner, cannot get burst mode to work."


US
          

First, let me say hi to all you Nikonians. This is my first post and my first foray into this quality / type of photo equipment. I know very little but an anxious to learn and grow. I read the owner’s manual concerning Continuous Shooting and made what I thought were the proper adjustments but to no avail. I simply cannot get Continuous Shooting to work. Please help.
Thanks, Mike

Hi, welcome!

By any chance, is the built-in flash deployed? If so, lower it.

Hi Mike,

Welcome to Nikonians. Check your d6 setting in custom settings menu as it might be on 1. Good luck.

First make sure that your Release Mode Dial is set to either CL or CH and then make sure that as you expose that you keep the Shutter Release button depressed for the length of time necessary. If the camera won't burst expose check out your settings in the Custom Setting Menu:
Hit Menu button
scroll down to pencil object
scroll right and go down to Shooting/Display
scroll right and go to D7 and check to see that you have a number greater than 1 (max 100) selected.

Hopefully, one of these will solve your problem

One other thing - purchase a copy of the book "Mastering the Nikon D7000" it's a great resource and it is easier to understand than the users manual. The author gives you suggested settings and explains WHY.

What exactly is it doing (or not doing). It sounds like you are in CH or CL and are you holding down the shutter button? What happens then, does it click slowly? Then pause, then click again?

What is your shutter speed at when trying to do this? If you are letting the camera set the speed, what is that speed?

First, thanks so much for your replies, second, I apologize for not responding sooner I had to leave town for the weekend and did not have the opportunity to work with the camera. However I did receive my copy of Mastering The Nikon D7000 by Darrel Young today. I will get back to the camera as soon as time permits and let you know how I make out after following all you comments and reading the book.
Thanks, Mike
