Question about Olympus Camedia C-5000 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

LONG warm-up time before ready to shoot

I have an Olympus c5000 digital camera. It has recently been taking up to 45 seconds to get ready to take the first photo when I turn it on. I bought a new battery and a new memory card, but that didn't help. Ideas?

    My camera also takes 45 seconds to warm up. The little red light flashes until it is ready. I thought maybe it was the battery, but after reading other people's comments, I am not so sure.

I found that a large memory card will make the "warm up" time longer. If you use a smaller memory card, this will not be the case.

Why does my olympus sz30mr take ages to take a pic. Says its busy. Iso is set to -1.3 will this slow the shutter speed under low light conditions


Be aware ti takes a camera the same time to save a camera, as it needs to shoot the picture. So if you shoot at 4 seconds, it will take at least 4 seconds to save the picture. When you are shooting under normal conditions, you won't notice it, because a shot from 1/30 of a second is saved in 1/30 of a second after you shot, It becomes noticeable when you use shutter times from half a second or longer, but it is absolute normal for any digital camera.

Tip

How to shoot a picture (generaly)


press the power of the digital camera, wait until the camera is ready
select the object , press the shutter HALF way and wait for the camera to focus and lock on the target than press the shutter all the way

the best digital camera's can focus and lock and shoot in less than a second.
the advantage of digital camera's is that you can see the result directly after taken the picture

Hi, I have an Olympus camera, D-425. For some reason, when I have it on the MOVIE setting, it only allows me to take 6 second clips. I have completely deleted all other photos from the camera, and it...


Greetings - It sounds like you are trying to use the camera's internal memory to shoot video. The camera only has 14 MB of internal memory.
If you want to shoot video or store more than a handful of pictures you need to get yourself an SD memory card and install it as directed in the manual. A two GB card would hold up to 60 minutes of video and can be purchased for about 10 dollars (USD).
Have Fun, Mikeywaf

When taking a picture, you must press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and then press the rest of the way when the moment is right for an instant picture. Is that what you do?

Date time stamp for olympus c-5000. How to turn


I had the same problem. I wanted to set my Olympus C5000 Zoom to automatically date stamp photos. After going through the entire manual, I had to call Olympus directly. They told me that none of their cameras have an internal date stamp feature. They said that the date stamp lowers the quality of the picture, so they choose not to have the feature available. However, you can manually add the date and time stamp through the software that comes with the camera, just before you print the pictures. Hope that helps...
if you need help with that manual go to http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/ and get our off the list.
It is on there!!! about the middle of the page.
