Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Elph

There is a MASSIVE delay from the time I push the button to take a picture and when it finally takes the picture. Is this a setting I can change? I've read the manual and tried different shutter speeds but it makes no difference.

There are some settings that can help with this (check out red eye and flash settings). The best solution I have found is to press the button down half way. The view finder will try to frame the picture, and then press the button all the way down. This 1) Eliminates Red Eye 2) Increases picture speed 3) allows for the "perfect" moment because you can leave it at half pressed for as long as you like, and 4) Allows you to take rapid fire pictures if you don't depress all the way.

Hope that helps

Trying to upload pictures to my computer from my canon powershot sd1100 IS digital elph camera but it says "communication error" how do i fix this so i can upload them?


This type of problem arises many times,at first they work but the more you use them the terminals tend to loosen up,even if the camera is new.So most of the time my best solution for that is to purchase a multiple memory card reader(usb 2.0).Most don't require any installer,just plug the reader to your computer and slide in any memory card you have and you will be able to upload any media you want.What I have is Ohm USB multi card reader/writer,it has been doing it's job since I got it.

Depending on your OS, you can download the latest driver for your system directly from Canon here. Remember to select your OS in the dropdown tab to be able to see the available downloads.

But I'd also recommend that you take this as an opportunity to consider utilizing a much safer method of downloading your pictures and videos. Please see this link, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days (some places less than $2 online with shipping).
