Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
My camera is about a year old. When I go to take a picture in auto, about half the time it takes about 9 seconds to focus when I push the button halfway down. If I try to push it all the way down without going halfway first, and it still takes the 9 seconds to take a picture.
Any help would be appreciated! I"m getting a little frustrated, and missing a lot of photo moments!
According to your description, I would like to assume that your camera takes 9 seconds to get the flash ready, not to focus. If it is the focus problem, you need to send the camera for realignment or to replace the lens.
Here is my suggestion:
Try to disable the flash. Does it still take 9 seconds to take picture? If the answer is ‘no’, then try to use fully charged batteries or new batteries to reduce the flash charging time.
If you have a ‘batteries drain quickly’ issue as well, this tip may help: Why my camera keeps saying ‘change battery’ even with new batteries?
