Camera too slow in taking the shot

Hello, I have a Cannon A95. Lately it became too slow in taking the shots, that's I push the button and before the camera takes the picture the object is long gone. Any ideas?

Re: Camera too slow in taking the shot

The camera is possibly 2 years old now so I doubt it'll be any freebie. If you are running on weak batteries it may be time to update them. Are you sure you don't have the self timer running? Check the menu. The camera should take no more than 1/10th second if it's prefocused and no more than about 3/5ths second from focus to capture. That's pretty fast. If you are outside try to keep your shutter speeds higher. I'd recommend the latest 2600Mah Nimh batteries. They take one heck of a pounding and still keep going. The only other thing I can think of is there's a problem with your lens but I very much doubt that. BMW

Re: Camera too slow in taking the shot

Hi, I suggest a trial with new fresh batteries and also check the focus mode, if your problem still remain, no way go to canon shop and ask them for upgrade your camera, i think it may be free. good luck...

Our Canon Power shot A95 is used to take close up photos of jewellery ,with a white background.We have been useing the TV mode with the MF to focus.Howerev the pictures are over enposed, what can we do to...

Instead of shutter priority "Tv" mode, try setting to program "P" mode instead. Also, turn off the flash, and set to macro if shooting close-in (press downward on the little flower icon on the back disk). If pictures come out blurry, try using a tripod to hold the camera steady, or set the camera down on an object so it doesn't move while taking the shot. Try using the timer to activate the shutter to allow the camera to remain even steadier for the shot.

Push button to take picture,it is slow to shot.

Lock in the focus first by pressing the shutter button half-way until you hear the "beep" and then press the rest of the way for an instantaneous shot.
