Re: D5100 frequently fails to take a shot

Do you think that when the camera beeps it indicates the camera has successfully focused and is 'ready' to shoot? And if so, and it doesn't shoot, then the camera is faulty?

I used the camera outside in bright day light. It wouldn't fail provided the view was filled with good light, but if the view included shadows from leaves then it would not shoot on every occasion; ie I would hold the camera as steady as I could and attempt to take shots repeatedly; it would take a picture many times but not always.
