Is there anyway to resolve shutter lag on the Nikon Coolpix 8700?
When I first purchased this camera the shutter lag did not appear as slow
as it is now. How can In fix this to get the fastest shutter speed. I seem
to be a little slow on the draw and I'm missing the shot I see in the view
Re: Is there anyway to resolve shutter lag on the Nikon...
what mode is your camera in?
auto- adjust your Iso it is too bright or dark for your current setting
c1-(manual) change your f-stop and Iso. set the iso to 200 and move the F-stop to any number and test the speed.
c2-same as c1

Just charge and use the battery a few times and see if it will work better after 2 or 3 times. If to, buy a new one. Then to make sure nothing is wrong with the camera, switch to the auto mode like you can read on page 15 of the manual. the camera should make pictures when there is some light and you press the shutter release button.
The manual is still online with Nikon USA.
This is a Guess. If the battery is very old the voltage may be so low that only a few things work correct. See if you can charge it. Auto Focus uses a Motor (takes some power) Taking a photo takes quite a bit of power..
This is a common situation with most compact point&shoot cameras. This "shutter lag" is because the camera has to do so much work when you press the shutter release button: focus on the subject, meter the light for proper exposure, and switch the electronics from viewing on the LCD to recording to memory. Larger (and more expensive) cameras have additional hardware to reduce this lag.
You can reduce the lag somewhat by anticipating the action. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter. Keep it pressed halfway until the right moment, then press it the rest of the way to take the picture.
The hand is telling you that the camera thinks it's being shaken. Has to do with slow shutter speeds. Does the AF lamp flash also?
Our 4600 does it also. It seems that the shutter release button might be broken as it does not appear to feel like it has both the focus position AND shoot position now. The processor is probably confused because of this.time for a new camera... probably not a Nikon CoolPix though.
This may be the same problem that requires you to press the LOCK button to actually take a picture. I found a solution and have posted to the questions mentioning the LOCK problem. Anyways, here goes, if that is not the problem please disregard what follows:
