Nikon D40 Continuous Shooting

by Celia

I just bought the Nikon D40. I have been using my sister-in-law's D60 which are basically the same camera and same settings.

My question is: I can not get this camera to set on continuous shooting. I take mostly rodeo photos and this is a must for me.
I have had no problems with the D60....please help.

Activate With Menu Setting
by: Digital SLR Guide

Unlike some other digital SLR cameras where continuous shooting can be activated with the push of a button, the continuous shooting mode on the Nikon D40 needs to be selected in the menus.

  1. Push the MENU button on the back of the camera
  2. Using the directional keypad (around the OK button) press the down button to select the CUSTOM SETTING MENU (with the pencil icon)
  3. Using the directional keypad select "04 - Shooting Mode" and press OK
  4. Using the directional keypad, select the Continuous shooting mode and press OK

If you often switch back and forth from single shot to continuous shooting and don't want to have to go through the menus every time, you can set the camera so that the function (Fn) button lets you change the shooting mode.

To do this, use the same CUSTOM SETTING MENU and select "11 - Fn Button" and press OK. Select the second option "Shooting mode" and press OK.

Now that the function button is assigned to change the shooting mode, every time you press the Fn button you can quickly choose between Single Shot, Continuous and Timer modes.
