    From the main screen where you do sessions
    Hold down the Ctrl + Shift + 9 keys all at the same time
    and Type "Freezing" in comments and hit send/OK

    It will send us a lot of info about your system
    so we can help you.

    Been getting this exact runtime error too. DSLR V4. Curious to find out what causes it. Sparkbooth will freeze and this message box hides behind sparkbooth window so you don't see it until you shut sparkbooth down.

    His issue was the shutter speed was set too long, so the camera was unable
    to take the photo.

    I shoot in program mode with AF turned off and camera's built in flash on.(canon T1 or XSi) Since program mode is quasi auto mode, can I assume that a longer shutter session could be responsible for triggering this error?

    It is not recommended to use auto focus, since it can also delay the camera
    from taking photos, or cause focus lock errors. If you have to have auto
    focus, make sure it is in quick focus mode to decrease the chance of focus
    lock errors.

    You may have mis-read, I always have AF OFF.

    Oops. And yes long delays can cause the camera error.
