Camera won't take a picture ¶

Wrong shooting mode ¶
There are several shooting modes. Make sure you do not have your camera on a timed delay mode. Another possible mode is a "one shoot mode". This will only focus on one point in the field of view, so your camera must be focused on it to capture the image.
