Continuous shooting mode...

I'm trying to use my continuous shooting mode on my D80 and am setting the button to continuous shooting mode, and it's taking the pictures, (flash is going off at the rate it should be) but they're all showing up black?? Like there's no pictures at all... what am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help!

Re: Continuous shooting mode...

Well, presuming you have not left the lens cap on I suspect the flash is not giving enough light for the conditions.

You have not said what the shooting conditions are - are you using the flash in daylight for fill-in? I suspect not, so how dark is it, what range are you shooting at?

If you take a shot in single shot mode is this OK?

Is the synchronisation set correctly? (probably a menu option)

Re: Continuous shooting mode...

Have you got the memory card in ????? simple mistake, if you have not set the camera to lock if it's missing!!.....I think demo mode allows the shutter use even though its not making images....Bryher

Re: Continuous shooting mode...

I'm not a Nikonian but, in general, continuous shooting mode is not intended for use with flash - the flash recharge simply can't keep up.

Try continuous mode outdoors without flash and see if that works. Some external flashguns can cope with continuous shooting to a point, but it depends on how much power they're discharging for each shot. The impossible takes a bit longer.

Re: Continuous shooting mode...

Yes.. lens cap was off.. rotfl!!! AND.. the memory card was in too! lol!!!

I was just inside trying to take some pics of my dd in her baby swing.. just 'playing' really...

Single shot is fine, yet.

I'll turn off my flash and try it out.. not sure about taking it outdoors.. it's brutally cold here... lol! Don't want my camera cracking.. lol!!!

Thanks for the tips! I'll give it a go and see what happens!

Re: Continuous shooting mode...

Hi , you might try turning the modeling flash off.....it is in the menu somewhere ....and set the flash to the standard lightning bolt and turn off any pre flash......

Bryher.......
. by the way the d300 will not do continuous with the built in flash , but I thought yours should. Hope you sort it let us all know if you do I would like to hear a success story

Most of the time this happens is because the EV (exposure compensation)was moved by mistake and therefore all images will show black.
Try resetting the camera to the original settings.
Just press the AF and the EV (+/-) buttons at the same time (those two buttons are the ones with the green dots), that should to the trick.
check the ISO also.
hope it helps


In the D80 "continuous shooting mode" will work with the flash but you have to press and re press the button and the flash will fire, without the flash just press and leave it pressed.
