    i finally baught my first DSLR today (Nikon D3000), and i was messing around with the continuous shot feature in a well lit room, but all the pictures that came out were pitch black, so how bright should the area be for the continuous shot to work properly? and also whats a good SD card so the pictures will transfer over faster while using the continuous shot?

    thanks in advance :)

    The continuous shot feature is not directly related to your black photo. You may need to learn more about Exposure.

    Search and read more about Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO and their relationship. That's the cause of the black picture (assuming you had the lens cap off)

    The users manual that came with your camera has a list of the SD or SDHC cards to use with your camera for best performance.

    The manual also has basic information about exposure.

    The D3000 is not a UDMA capable camera so there will be no benefit with a fast card when shooting in burst mode, only when uploading to a computer.

    Welcome to the DSLR world and TPF. :thumbup:

    even during burst mode the shutter goes through so fast it doesnt let enough light in, how would i fix this without disrupting the shutter speed?

    i was about to get really mad that some dude just bought a d300 and does have a clue about proper exposure and then i read (s) he bought the d3000 NOT d300- i feel a little better.. seriously how much of joke are those d3000 and d5000? but i do guess they have their purposes, hence people who are new.. but who am i lol, i have a d40 (although i think its a very legit camera).. im looking at a d90 though..

    like that person said- learn about apeture and ISO because you jump the ISO to 1600 that should help some and also lower the f/stop all the way down. although most people do not realize this unless they are photographers, but indoors there is not a great amount of light to shoot with..

    In burst mode, your camera can shoot up to 3 frames per seconds.


    If this settings ( shutter speed = 1/500, Aperture = F/2.8, ISO = 100 ) give you a correct exposure, you can shoot it with 1 fps, 2 fps or 3 fps and still give you a same correct exposed photos.

    Or use a more expensive camera and shoot it at 8fps with the same settings, all the photos will be exposed correctly under the same environment.

    In other words, if the settings (shutter speed, aperture and ISO) gave you a black photos in burst mode, it will give you the same black photo in single shot mode. The burst mode just give you more black photos in a second.

    all i had to do was change the ISO to 1600, it was on 100, so 1600 made them come out clear and not dark, thanks for the help everyone

    I'm going to guess you have your camera in manual which would explain why your photos are pitch black when using ISO 100 and are exposed (properly?) at ISO 1600.
    As others have stated before you might want to learn about exposure and a few modes on your camera. Namely manual, aperture priority and shutter priority. The rest i personally find to be relatively useless. Starting with programe might help you learn to deal with ISO however and you can still influence shutter speed and aperture.

    I would take the lens cap off, set the camera to P mode, set the ISO to 400, and start shooting...then at least you'll have a chance,and if the camera determines it needs flash, the pop-up flash will magically pop up to assist your exposure.

    Alternately, turn the dial to one of the various "scene Modes", you know, with the little symbols.

    There is also a built-in GUIDE setting on the dial...the guide will explain the camera to you. Nikon D3000 review from TechRadar UK's expert reviews of Digital SLRs
