Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
I've had my A85 for 3? years and this last year have fought to get a good picture out of it. After depressing the shutter button (no matter what setting I have the camera on), there is a SIGNIFICANT delay before the camera actually takes the photo. By the time it does the subject has moved, shot gone. Help!!!
Melzim, another user, is exactly right. The lower-end digital cameras experience a significant shutter delay when using the camera; it's an unfortunate fact.
What you can do, outside of investing in a newer model (which do have improvements over the earlier models) is simply try to anticipate your subject's movement - or concentrate on portraiture, etc.
There is a huge value, over time, in having pictures of smiling families, standing still, believe it or not.
The A85 is simply not the camera to use to freeze action.

Flash forced off. it has 2 folders behind the camera
Camera takes up to 30 pictures (2 per second up to 15 seconds) while the Shutter button is held. When the shutter button is released, only the last 8 pictures are saved. (Capture an event when the precise timing is uncertain e.g., a child blowing out birthday candles.)
