Question about Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camera hesitates when taking a picture, I miss the smiles and get a turned head or someone moving away. When you push the shutter it seems like it takes a couple seconds before taking the shot.

My shutter speed is very slow and when I take pictures I think when it's dark is when I notice the problem but the picture will not take. Also if someone moves their face is blurry.


What mode are you shooting in? It seems you may either have your shutter speed set manually to a slow speed or, alternatively you have set your apperture set to a high number e.g f/20 or there abouts. Because this is a very narrow apperture the camera will compensate by using a slow shutter speed.
Try some shots in fully automatic mode and see what happens. With a slow shutter speed you can expect any movement to produce blurred images.

There's a long delay from the time I push the button until the flash goes off and the picture actually takes. I miss the smiling child and get a turned head instead.


Press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and when the moment is right, press the rest of the way.

Is there any way to speed up the time from when i push the shutter button to when the camera actually takes the picture. there us a terrible lag. I am tired of getting the side of mu grandson's head.


there really isn't, sad to say. I too used to take photos of my grandchildren and got really tire of getting an "after the cute smile, or event" image. (back of head, etc). I upgraded to a DSLR camera and no longer have that problem. I use the continuous shooting mode, so it shoots several images in a row, and I don't miss a thing!!!!!

How to take a picture with the Canon PowerShot A75 using the self timer?


On the back of the camera there is a button with a clock picture (usually with only one hand). Press this button and watch the screen. You will be given the choice of 2 or 10 seconds.(that varies with camera model). Pick one (usually 10 seconds is better) and push set. Press the shutter button and get in front of the camera...smile.

No image in sports mode


Sports mode gives you a high shutter speed. Continuous just allows the camera to keep taking pictures as long as you hold the shutter button and keep the autofocus moving.
You need very high Iso capabilities (6400+) and very fast lenses (f1.8, f2.0, f2.8) to shoot indoor sports and night games under lights and stop motion without a very powerful flash system. Standard consumer stuff just can't do it and even with a good flash it cannot work very far.
You can set the camera to night mode and it will give you your highest iso and slow shutter speeds but you will end up with motion blur.
I shoot a D300($1600) and a 70-200mm F2.8($1900) and I can just barely get away with it. To do it right cost about $8000! I'm now professionally shooting just to pay for the next camera. Hobby too Hell in a hurry.

Smile shutter feature


Select the smile shutter option from the program settings. You will see an icon of a smiley face on the bottom left hand of the screen. To activate the automatic shot of when a person smiles, simply hold down the shutter button for a second or two. Now, when the camera face detection senses a smile, it will automatically take the picture. To deactivate it, press the shutter button again, the camera will then tell you how many shots it took. Hope this helps.

BLURRY PICTURE


Shoot a faster shutter speed.  Push the button gently and hold the camera very steady.  Use a flash or higher ISO in low light.

Focus on a particular subject?


If the camera is having trouble doing an auto focus you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance away from you, and then move the camera back to your original subject and take your picture without losing that focus. First turn the camera on and locate the AutoFocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away from you as the subject that the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, move the camera back to include the subject you originally wanted in the image, then press the shutter fully. (Please see page 42 in the D-535 Zoom Reference Manual in Section 3, under the heading titled “If Correct Focus Cannot Be Obtained”, for a more detailed explanation.)
