Fluttering noises in my new camera

Should my new canon sx10is be making fluttering noises when I hold down the shutter button halfway to focus and set lighting, especially in sports multi-shot mode, but before I press the button all the way?

It sounds as if it's just focusing.

Shutter button does nothing when pressed halfway, will not focus automatically. It doesn't make the beeping noise, no green box, nothing happens! I can press it all the way and take a picture, but t


Please check if yu did set the camera in AF mode continuous. In that mode, the camera is focusing on whatever is aimed at. Even when the shutter button is not pressed, allowing you to shoot without missing opportunities.
The mode where you see the camera focus when the button is pressed half way, is called single. This setting will conserve battery power.
Look in the manual under Switching between Focus Settings. I can't tell you war page that is for your camera, in mine it is page 100.
On the last pages in the book are all settings for each shooting mode.

Autofocus problem


Does this problem still exist when you have the shutter pressed halfway down?

Shots are blurry


This issue can occur in the following circumstances:
The subject is too close to the camera lens Insufficient lighting Subject movement Camera movement Incorrect camera settings Incorrect camera operation Follow the steps below to help prevent taking pictures that appear blurry, out-of-focus or distorted.

If the camera has both an auto focus and manual focus mode, make sure it is set to auto focus. Make sure there is enough lighting to allow the camera to focus on the subject. Make sure the camera settings are set appropriately. When taking close-up or macro-type shots, ensure the subject is not closer than the minimum focus distance of the lens. Also, if the camera has a zoom option, set it to the W (wide-angle) position. If you have a fast-moving subject and the camera has a Program AE mode with a higher shutter speed (such as Sports action), make sure it is enabled. Also, if the camera has an ISO control, set it to a higher setting. If your camera has a SteadyShot/anti-blur function, ensure it is enabled. Aim the camera at the subject. Press the shutter button halfway down. NOTES:
Pressing the shutter button halfway down allows the camera to focus automatically. A flashing green indicator will be visible in the LCD or viewfinder. When the indicator stops flashing, focusing is finished and the camera is ready to take the picture. Some camera models have a Monitoring AF setting that can be selected which allows the camera to focus without the need to hold the button halfway down. Consult the instruction manual of the camera for information whether or not this is applicable for your model.

Autofocus is activated by pressing the shutter button halfway, be shure to have a EF lens in the camera, otherwise it won't make autofocus, put camera on full auto mode or "sports mode" (the running guy) and the focus settings on redictive AI Servo AF: Continuously tracks subject movement and achieves focus before the exposure starts.

Brand new camera, will not focus


If your artwork is behind glass, make sure you are not using flash. The best way is probably to set it on a tripod, put it in TV mode and slow the shutter speed down a bit to let more light in to compensate for not using flash. You will want to lock the exposure and focus on the art and not the glass by pushing shutter halfway down first, establishing focus and then continuing to push the shutter all the way down.

If you are less than a foot and a half away, try the macro mode which is the little flower button. If you are more than a foot and a half, do not use macro, leave it in normal.

Hope this helps.!

The camera takes too long to take a photo. What should I do?


Press the shutter button halfway and hold it to set the focus, then press it the rest of the way down to take a photo. If you press the shutter button down all the way at once, it takes time to focus and set the exposure before the shutter releases. It may take longer than when pressing the shutter button in two steps.
