Sometimes I press the shutter button of my Eos M5 and it just. won't. take. a. photo.
I know there are some 'obvious' reasons for the camera to refuse taking a picture, like having not enough light for the AF to work.
Right now I have a manual Samyang lens mounted configured in SCN/HDR mode and when I try to take a picture and this damn camera won't let me..
In fact currently only
Tv modes let me take pictures.
I've searched all the menu several times now in the hope to find some funny configuration like the shutter button being deactivated by some troll - but without luck.
What are the preconditions for taking pictures I have to check in doubt?
- Light is OK - for testing purposes I try to take a picture of my bright monitor - half-trigger configures 1/250 at ISO 100
- Aperture is manually set to 1.4
- Lens generally works on this camera (
Tvmodes work fine)
- Take photo w/o lens is enabled where possible
What else should I check?
C.Fn. tab in the menu is not available for the modes I can't take pictures in. So maybe shooting w/o lens is disabled there. Might that be possible? What could be the reason for this?!
