I have a Sony Cyber shot DSC-H2. When the shutter button is depressed halfway, it does not focus as it should do. Is there a simple solution to this?


The Sony DSC-H2 and DSC-H5 have a terrible shutter button design and the tiny little "bubble" that is responsible for the "half press focus" can be easily damaged.

If you do a Google search for "Sony shutter button repair" you will see the #1, 2 and 3 links are all for www darntoothysam com. We have done hundreds of this repair over the years!

The repair service is just $70 total IF we can repair it without replacing the part, installation and return shipping of the camera. Please visit our site, we would be happy to service your camera.

Hope this helps!

Time betwween taking picture and actual shutter actuation to slow


Push the button half-way and allow the camera to focus before pressing the rest of the way. By pre-focussing, you can wait for just the right moment before pressing the rest of the way.

Sony dsc-w55 takes at least 3.5 - 4 seconds to take a shot. I'm missing way too many shots. I have a 2 GB mem card in that's virtually empty. Ideas?


you should have turned on the timer!!!
at the back side of your cam near the lcd screen, you should be able to see a small button with the clock symbol on it.
press it when you are ready to take a shot.you will be able to see the time delay in taking the shots varying from 2 sec to 5 sec etc.
press it continuously until it comes to zero!!!

Sony DSC H-5 Camera slow response time


There is a diaphram between the shutter button and the shutter that does the focus. Pushing the button half way down pre-focuses and then the picture is instantanious. If the diaphram is broken it take a while before the shutter takes the picture. One of the AA batteries may be defective so try another set and see if that is better. There is also a slight possibility that the secondary battery (hidden within the camera) has gone bad.

2. Press "Menu"

3. Select [PFX] (P. Effect) with the horizontal arrows

I want to take action shots


Try turning the flash off. You can also prefocus and meter the exposure by pressing the shutter release button halfway. Hold it there until the right moment, then press it down the rest of the way.

When using flash, my sony cyber-shot dsc-t10 takes forever to take pictures!


Have you tried Hi-Speed memory cards, as writing speed of the card affects the response time of camera, I am using Sony MSX-M2GN 2GB and it's gives me quite good response.

Other thing you might try is format the memory card using camera, camera has card format functionality and it does also improve the performance of the camera.
