Canon 400D question.

Up until last night, when I took a picture, a second or two after the shot, regardless of exposure time, the image popped up on the screen for a couple of seconds, then it was ready for the next shot.

Now, after the shot is taken, the display reads, busy, a red led on the back comes on, and the camera cannot be used for some time. The longer the exposure, the longer it takes to be ready for the next shot.

Also, now the file sizes for each shot are huge! I;m sure this has something to do with it. What have I done?

The file sizes were 2 to 4 mb on average. Now they are 8 or 9mb and sometimes bigger!

Baz.

Have you changed your image-recording quality from JPEG to RAW?

Yes the setting will be on raw now that is the only explanation of the file size.

Baz, the reason for the delay between shots is probably in camera noise reduction. If you have long exposure noise reduction on the camera is merely taking a dark frame during the lengthy pause. If you're taking raw and intend on using the images, you should manually take dark frames as the in camera ones are only applied to the Jpg file and not the raw.

Thanks Phil! Yes thats what it was. The Noise reduction function. I will have to learn how to do the darks, lights and offsets properly.

Cheers mate.
