What type of camera do you own?
Lol....that's low...making fun of a poor wolverine fan...
Were you using flash or the autofocus-assist lamp? Both have a failsafe that disables the shutter if they get too hot. Or maybe the shutter got too hot...?
Then it almost definitely was the on-camera flash overheating. It depends on the flash power setting, but you can usually take 5-20 photos before the failsafe kicks in.
Its just a safety precaution.
Your camera is fine.
Yep, as long as the flash is in a fit state to cool down (i.e. it's not in an oven), then it will go away quickly.
I think TamiyaGuy has it.
But there's another possibility ... were you shooting in RAW?
If so, there is a limit to how many shots you can get before the camera has to pause to buffer.
exactly what i was gonna say, if you were shooting continously.....
Sorry, Luna. We assume anyone form Michigan lives in the Big House so we shoot first and ask questions later.
