Hi,I'm new to Nikonians and am grateful to have "shooters" in my life now who might be able to help me solve a problem that has me coo-coo. My D90 will not fire more than one shot at a time no matter what adjustments I make. And even at that, there is a second beat between them and each has to be fired manually. No automatic firing even with the setting on 3 or 4.
Thinking it might be my chip, I bought a RAW steel 16 gb that made no difference. What settings should I be looking at to see if I've done something that cancels this out? And is there a "default" setting I can return to? When I bought it, the continuous firing was fine.
I admit to being almost totally flumaxed by the computer I am now using as my camera. I came out of film shooting, always Nikon and always manual. I love the results I'm getting with digital, but how I'm getting them is still a mystery to me. Help! And thanks...
The timer does give the camera time to settle down from pressing the shutter release if you're not using a remote, but it does not do anything about mirror vibrations. Exposure Delay raises the mirror first, delays the exposure, then releases the shutter. A "poor man's" mirror up.
Welcome to Nikonians! Verify that you have the Release mode set to Continuous High Speed by pressing the mode button on top of the camera then rotating the Command Dial until the icon with the H is displayed in the top LCD.
Make sure that the built-in Speedlight is Off and Down.
Is the shutter speed set to 1/250th sec. or faster?
I'd recommend to make sure you have ruled out all potential mode issues that you reset the camera to its default settings. To do this either go through the menus or press and hold the buttons marked with green dots next to the top LCD display.
Then just set the shooting mode to H and you should be good to go.
