How do I get continuous shooting to work on Canon S110

by Newbie642 / January 14, 2013 6:24 AM PST

I upgraded from the S90 to the S110 and love most ot it's features. But the alleged ability to shoot several frames per second (when holding the shutter button down) has only worked occasionally and I can't figure out how to make it work reliably when needed. It took terrific pics when it worked. When it doesn't, the camera only repeats about 1 fps. I selected "continuous shooting" on the menu And the display shows that symbol. But it has a mind of its own!!
Any suggestion or answer?

Are you waiting for the buffer to clear?

Wrong Mode

I don't have an S110, but according to specs, the normal continuous shooting mode only offers up to 2.1 frames per second, and that's best case. It can be slower depending on the mode, auto focus and shutter speed. The speed will slow down as the buffer fills up too, and once the buffer is full, it will stop and you cannot take more photos until the buffer clears. There is also a high speed burst mode which captures up to 10 frames per second (and 10 frmes is probably the limit...i.e. you can't keep holding down the button and get 20 frames in two seconds).
