my camera does not allow me to consistently snap a shot and acts as though it is locked. little black rectangular squares appear on the view finder and when I try to click to take the shot it does not allow me to do so. Sometimes if i turn off the camera and then back on again i could take a shot but then it only allows me two or three. I use it mostly on Auto but today I used it on P and it worked with continuous shots for a while then same problem. new batteries and all. I don’t want to buy another camera if possible but fear the cost of repair will be almost as much. I have it set to Continuous shoot but it is anything but continuous. I tried seeing if it is the lens. I have four lens and they all have the same problem.
