Hi bros,

I have tried to turn the rotating switch to set at Continuous mode for burst shot but after pressing the shutter half way and full, nothing happens.

Can anyone advise me what went wrong. thanks

I'm not sure about D50, but for D70s, there's a minimum shutter speed you have to 'attain' before you can burst fire. Maybe that's the cause?

Set to continuous mode, set to Shutter priority, set shutter speed to 1/1000 then half press and shoot, it should reach around 3FPS.

No Problem. Sometimes if your below a certain shutterspeed 3fps cannot work, need a decent shutterspeed. Keep on learning, i know I still am. :)

To achieve 3fps, isn't it logical you'd need a shutter speed of at least 1/3 sec or faster? :confused:

Your AF is probably set to single servo and it could not find a focus so it locked the shutter. If you switch focusing to M or AF-Continuous, then it should fire. Like what others mentioned, the shutter speed will also determine the fps.

Thanks to all bros for yr good advice. Yes, I can get the continous burst shots now when I set the dial to S and ISO right up to highest. But yes, you cannot get this burst shots if you have internal flash lights on. I guess, I need to get the SB-600 for night shots.

Cheers
