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.

How to remove flat battery from canon power shot A550


Look at the little door labeled CR1220 in this picture. Pry it open with your fingernail, and take the battery down to your local drugstore to buy a replacement (should be around $3).. Note that W-mart for some reason is expensive for the common CR1220 battery compared to retail drug stores.

How do I change the shuuter speed on my A550 power shot canon camera


Since there is no shutter or aperture priority mode on the A550, the shutter speed is predetermined by the shooting mode. You can try changing the ISO speed when in a certain mode, but the camera may compensate by changing the aperture setting rather than the shutter speed. You'll have to experiment.

You can place the camera in Long Shutter Mode, however, when you want exposures times between 1 and 15 seconds. You set that by pressing the Function menu and Func. Set button when in [Camera icon]M mode, then using the < and > buttons to cycle through the long shutter settings.

Hope this helps!

Black screen on canon a 550


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on or off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder, just like you've been doing. To turn the screen back on, press the button once more.

Black screen


Not to worry, this a very simple problem. Your display is set to off. All you need do is set it back on. And this is how you will do it.
To the right of your screen where you have your buttons, look for the display button. Below it is usually labeled DISP. Press this button again and again and watch as the screen display changes. At one of those instances it goes blank/off, but at the others it displays the view in deferent manners. Stop at any of those display options where it shows the view.

Did you accidentally press the DISP button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns the screen back on.
