Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC ZS19K 141 Megapixel Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sometimes shutter release button is very slow, other times it is fine. Just began happening. Do you have any idea what the problem may be

Many times when I press the shutter release button there is a long delay before the image is taken. This is a new problem and is somewhat erratic. It is far more than the normal delay that occurs at times -- this is a new problem and seriously affects my ability to use the camera.

On page 28 of the advanced features manual from your camera, it explains how AF works. Focusing should happen while you press the shutter realise button half way down. Depending of the light, contrast and subject this can take from half a second to sometimes twice or three times as long. When in focus, you hear a beep and see a green light on the display. Then you can make the composition (or fine tune the outline of your picture) and then you press the button fully. The compact camera does work different from a DSLR. If you are user to a DSLR, you have to learn the compact, because it needs more time to focus, because the focus system is completely different.

hi, i've an fx8. i had a problem 2 weeks ago. my objective didn't want to close when i switched the camera off. it remained open. when i switched the camera on again, the objetcive has closed and opened again, and the _Turn Off the Camera and Turn On again_ message appeared on the sisplay. and remained in open position after switching it off. i tried some button combination, like menu button on, and power the camera on. it didn't work, but the second was the shotting button on, power on combination. an it worked, my camera did some kind of reset. it returned to the original position, and everithing is working since then.

I believe the FZ7 determines that the lense cap is still on when it can't extend the zoom lense because the lense cap is in the way. I would check to see if your zoom lense housing is somehow stuck (could be sand or dirt in it) which is creating enough resistance to make the camera think the lense cap is impeding the zoom lense from extending.

HI,

i suggest you to once try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries. you will see a difference.Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries..

Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on.

Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Fix #3: Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the camera on in picture review mode. Have no idea why this would work, except that quite a few people have reported some success with it.

Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.

Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.

Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.

Hopes this may help you;

SOURCE: delay between pressing button and actual photo taken

hi

there is a lot to takin good pictures but its easy too

now when are you facing this prob during low light situations or regularly

if it is during low light then pitching up ur ISO settings say from some 80 or 100 to atleast 400 or 800 should do the trick but beware of a lil picture noise,

also u can turn on the continuous focus(CF) setting

also when you are taking a picture try to focus on the subject by pressing and holding the shutter button only halfway then once you r safisfied with the way it looks press it down all the way to take the picture this works for all photos whether in day light or during low light

if u have any further questions u can contact me on mail2pvs@gmail.com

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

The shutter of the camera is not closing


Do you mean when you press the shutter release button, oohing happens?
Are you sure you are giving the camera enough time to focus, before you press the button complete?
Normaly, you have to press the button half way, and wait till the camera is focused. The camera will give an audio or a visual signal. Then press the button complete.
Be patient. Point an shoot camera's sometimes need more than a second to focus.
It is not like in the old days, every time you pressed the shutter release button the camera fired.

The lag time for the shutter to operate after the shutter release button is released is very long. So long that the camera is really not usable to take pictures of anything that moves in the least. Any...


How long have you had the camera? It just sounds like the camera is in Manual mode or "M" and the shutter speed is set really slow. Try putting it back on automatic, or twist the dial that will increase the shutter speed. You can find the manual on Nikon's website.

How do I change the shutter speed?


This is "shutter lag," the delay between pressing the shutter release button and the camera actually taking a picture. This is a common situation with many compact cameras. The camera has to focus on the subject, meter the exposure, and switch the circuitry from displaying on the screen to recording the image and saving it in memory. More sophisticated (and expensive) DSLRs eliminate this shutter lag by having more dedicated hardware for this.

With a compact camera, you can reduce the shutter lag by anticipating the shot. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter the exposure. Continue to hold the shutter release button halfway until the right time, then press it the rest of the way.

don't drop a D80. wrap the fabric clipped onto the camera (say for hanging around your neck, which is a bad idea because of heat.) around your wrist two to three times, EVERY time you use it.

EOS 30D is slow to fire.


Are you sure you aren't in the delay setting in drive mode? This camera has 2 delay settings, one for 2 seconds between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo, and one with 10 seconds delay - often used when you want to be in the photo (e.g. self-portrait or group photo).

If you aren't in the delay mode, then I need to know more about your settings. What shooting mode are you using? What type of photo are you trying to take (portrait, landscape, sports)? Are you shooting indoors, outdoors, bright sunlight, overcast, etc.?

No picture taken when shutter release is pressed


if you see no reation of the pressing of the button i.e. no focusing, no error message nothing , then most probably a simplest problem , the shutter release button may not be working for few reasons : 1) defective switch. 2) defective flex cable. 3) camera exposed to some physical jerk or dropping resulting into disalingment between inner switch and the shutter release button.
