I have a problem when using the Time Lapse Function. If I use it at 10 second intervals it seems to work fine but when I use it at 30 second and higher intervals it stops functioning after the first picture is taken. Am I doing something wrong?? I need some help with this problem. Thanks in advance

Greetings,

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with the timer feature.

Make sure of the following.

  1. [/*]Set the Drive mode to the desired option, or using the drive mode for self timer, burst. exposure bracketing.

  2. [/*]Press the Shutter button halfway to set the AE/AF.

  3. [/*]For all settings, except Burst, press the Shutter button completely down and release it to take the picture.

  4. [/*]For Burst settings, press the Shutter button completely down and hold it. The camera stops taking pictures when you release the Shutter button, all pictures are taken, or there is no more storage space.

    Note: To cancel the self-timer and shutter delay during countdown, press the shutter button again.

    Note: During quickview you can delete all pictures in the burst series. To delete selectively, do so in review.
Actually,thenumber of bursts depends on the quality mode and the rate of compression. Remember, the Tiff format is unavailable in burst.

See if this makes a difference. Good luck!

Hi Ron, FYI I am a retired Kodak employee. Thirty years is Motion Picture Film sales.
I tried as you suggested and still the only way it will work is in the 10 second setting. If I go to 30 seconds or more it will make one exposure and then will turn the time lapse to off!!! Any other suggestions or will I need to send the camera in for repair. I purchased it through the Kodak employee/retiree website.
Thanks for the assistance.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I just received notice from Kodak and they suggested that I update the Firmware on my camera. I went their website and downloaded the software onto my computer and followed the instructions for updating my camera. Everything works fine now.
