Question about Canon Cameras
I have a canon power shot A550. After i take a picture, the screen is black for quite a few seconds. It takes a long time for that to clear for me to be able to take another picture. i tried getting a new memory chip but that didnt solve anything. any ideas? it wasnt always like that.
What is the speed of the card? It should say so on the card, or list its class (look for a "C" with a number centered in the C). If it doesn't say so on the card, and if you've payed only a few dollars for it, it's likely a low speed card and can cause this problem.
This can also occur due to charging time of the flash capacitor. Try turning off your flash and see if that dramatically improves the shot turn around time. If it does, you may also want to consider higher power batteries to improve charge time. Recommend NiMH rechargeables, rated 2500 mah or better. Look on the package, it should state the power rating. If it doesn't, avoid the batteries as they are likely low power.
