How to stop delay.

I take pics of dogs in shelter and when I press to shot, it has a second or more delay. By that time the dog has moved and the shot is lost. What am I doing wrong? Can I set something that will immediately take pic with hesitation?

It sound like your ISO speed is set too low. I would bet you're taking pictures inside a building with few or not ambient light. Try changing the ISO to 400 or 800. You might also consider using the flash.

I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.

Why does my canon power shot hesitate before taking a picture


It's probably acting normal. Every camera (in one of the auto modes) must focus before it takes the image. In low light situations, or low contrast situations (white dog against a white background), many cameras have difficulty finding focus. This causes a delay before the shutter clicks. Try taking your camera out on a nice sunny day and take a pic. If there's no delay, there's your answer. If in a low light situation, click your flash on. That may help a bit to reduce the delay.

Is it ok to put a dog in a muzzle for many hours or days?


Dogs should never be muzzled for more than a few hours at atime. It is considered cruel becausemuzzles can be painful. If you have tohave a dog muzzled for longer than desirable, you should use a basket muzzlebecause they tend to be the most comfortable. If you feel like you need to keep a dog muzzled for days at a time, I wouldconsider taking him to training to work on the issues or to a shelter instead.

Is using a dog crate cruel?


Dogs in the wild need a safe haven and they usually seek out a place where they can call their own. If a domestic dog has no particular place to hide it will usually go under a table or stairs to shelter itself. So no using a dog crate is not cruel and it is a great way to house train your pet.

My kenmore 385 won't feed fabric


Check to see what pattern is selected. Be sure it isn't the buttonhole.Select straight stitch.Move the stitch length setting to 4.Turn the handwheel and see if the feed dogs move forward. Press the reverse lever and see if they move backwards. Select straight stretch stitch and turn the wheel to see if the feed dogs move forward and backward.Check the presser foot release on top of the machine and make sure there is pressure on the foot.
Sometimes the reverse assembly on this machine stops working because it has the wrong type of grease on it and it turns into a hard gummy mess that won't let it work.

Miss all the action shots with this camera


The longest part of the shutter delay is caused by the autofocus mechanism. Most cameras will let you press the button half-way down and wait until the autofocus is locked. Then wait for the action to occur. When you press the button the remaining distance, there will be a shutter delay of about 0.2 seconds before the picture is taken. Using that technique will let you capture action shots. There is no way to improve shutter delay on any particular camera. The newer digital cameras are showing improvement in this area. Some are achieving autofocus lock in 0.4 seconds and shutter delay of an additional 0.1 seconds.
