What kind of picture do you want to take? What do you want that picture to say to the viewer?
There are a lot of different settings because there are a lot of different types of pictures. You don't want the same settings for a landscape picture as for a portrait picture. You probably wouldn't want the same settings for a portrait of a young girl as for a portrait of her grandfather.
If you're not comfortable choosing the settings yourself, set the camera to the appropriate scene mode. For taking pictures of people use the Portrait mode, for taking pictures of where you are on vacation use the Landscape mode, and so on.
If you want to learn more, your local library probably has some introductory photography books that tell you how the various settings such as aperture and shutter speed affect your pictures.
Just turn off the camera and take out the memory card. There should be a small tab on the upper left side.. Just adjust that tab to unprotect it then put it back to the camera and start taking pictures.
To turn on or off the Date and Time stamp features, push the menu button. It's the small silver button on the back panel directly beneath the printed letter M, and just above the little green LED. This opens the menu. Now, press the right side of the ring shaped control button, where the little lightning arrow is. This will scroll through the different menu categories. Keep scrolling until you get to the one at the far right of the screen. It is a blue icon that looks like an envelope and a clock. This will bring up the menu for toggling the Date and Time stamp. Use the top and bottom of the ring to select the setting you want, and press the button in the middle of the ring, marked SET DISP, to select it. Then press the menu button again to get out of the menu and return to taking pictures.
Removing the batteries or shutting the camera off while it's loading is just like shutting the power off to your computer while it's loading a page. It sure doesn't like it and can scramble its processor into malfunction. Please start with fresh batteries, format the SD card making sure the slide lock is pushed forward in the unlock position (towards the gold contacts) Load any pictures from the internal memory to the SD card, if any download to the computer and reformat the SD card. Now we have started with a clean memory. The SD card should be formatted every time you download pictures to the computer to keep things clean and running smoothly. To the problem with not taking the picture or taking a long time to take the picture. I'm thinking you have the camera set in a "creative zone" which relays on user input and what has happened is the setting are far beyond "normal hand held photography. This meaning the exposure time is in long seconds and the camera is actually taking a picture (shutter speed for this camera can be as long as 30 seconds) I would suggest until you get use to using this camera that you turn the dial on the top to the "P" (program) mode that way the camera will look after both the shutter and aperture for the scene or subject in front of it. Another thing that could be happening is the self timer has been set for 10 seconds further prolonging what seams like forever in an exposure. See picture.
If this fails the the camera can be rest except for time/date. I'm saying this as there may be a function that has been set in the "Set up Menu" that you are not familiar with and wish nly to continue taking pictures in a more normal fashion. See the include picture which is also on page 95 of your manual.
Does your camera gave a small battery in place somewhere that is used to maintain the date and time settings? (it is generally a watch battery type small flat silver disk.) You should not have to reset time and date after each battery change.
Many digital cameras eat up batteries quickly, especially when using the flash alot., that is why it is important to use good quality rechargeables whenever possible.
In picture-taking mode, hit the Func Set button. You will see menus of options along the left side and bottom of the display.
Tap the bottom of the scroll ring (the ring around the Func Set button) until the bottom option of the left menu is highlighted in red. This option sets the image size of the pictures you are taking.
Change this size by rotating the scroll wheel. The 5 options are Large, Medium1, Medium2, Medium3, and Small. The image size in pixels is displayed above the bottom menu as you switch between sizes.
When finished, hit Func Set again.
