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.
