I assume you're using a point&shoot camera.

You can get faster response by pressing the shutter button halfway to focus and meter, then press it the rest of the way when the action peaks.

One of the advantages of higher-end cameras is the shorter shutter lag.

When i push the button to take a picture, the camera delays for about 3 or 4 seconds before it actually take the pic. Why does it delay?


Hi,

There could be several problems like:

1)The focus.
2)Self timer set to 2sec or 10sec.
3)very slow shutter speed set.
Make it as a 10 or 20 second delay on the self timer .Your problem here could be that the settings are not right. Go to the menus and reset all to original or default. Then set menus the way you like. You may have a slow memory card, try changing to a faster card, and test it.


Thank you!

DSC-W150 SteadyShot says turn power on & off & lens pops in/out


I had the same problem with my Sony DSC-W150 camera. It turned out to have an easy fix. At the same time, press the power button and depress the shutter button halfway (the one you snap to take pics) as if you were trying to engage the autofocus without pressing the button down entirely. The lens will attempt to autofucus, which in my case was enough extra power to dislodge whatever debris/sand had clogged the lens. Hope this works for you!

Shutter too slow and pics of people blurry. I have the camera on auto setting, push button half way down, focus, then all the way, take the pic. If the subject is moving AT ALL, the pic comes out blurry....


If your camera has a sport or action mode that would be your best option if your pics keep coming out blurry. These modes are made for action shots. Its worth a try!

Camedia C-5050 zoom won't take pics


Is your memory full? Does the camera attampt to focus when you push the button down 1/2 way? If not the mode dial may be faulty (you are not in picture taking mode) or the shutter button may be faulty (no focus attempt) Try to use the timer button to get the shutter to trip.

With the camera on, push the mode button 5 times. The window will show a square with a dark circle in it, and a diagonal line through. Hold the shutter button (that you take a picture with) down until the camera "beeps". This will erase all the pics in the camera. To erase the last pic taken, push the mode button 4 times. This gives you a square with a lighter circle and diagonal line - hold the shutter button until it beeps.

Card not initialized


Kyle850. I have a fujifilm finepix camera myself, and just recently had the same problem. The camera worked fine until one day I turned it on to take a picture and there was the "card not initialized" message. To fix the problem, just turn on your camera, push the menu button and use the right/left arrow buttons near the zoom button in the top left corner of the camera. Push the right arrow button until you come to the "option" window in the camera's view finder and use the "up" function of the zoom to highlight the "set-up" window. Press "ok", and use the right arrow button scoll over to the "2" tab and press the ok button again. Then use the "up/down" function of the zoom button to scroll down to the "format" tab. Press ok button again and use the "left" button near the zoom in and out button to highlight the "ok" option in the format window. By pressing the ok button here, it will reformat and reinitialize your picture card. If you do have pics already on your pic card, you may want to take your pic card to a photo center and see about recovering these pics before you go through the reformat process because there is a good chance that when you reformat your pic disk any pics on it will be gone. Good luck. SG

Button to take a pic is broke


Sorry, the camera is useless, throw it away. New cameras are quite cheap now.

Take pic button sticking


If you have just taken one or more pictures it might be that you have a very slow memory card and the camera's memory has to digest those first before it can process more. It might be a weak or going bad battery. Can't help you on the pressing hard part...
