Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera
Please help me! It takes too long from the moment I press the shutter button to the time it actually takes the picture. This is very disturbing when you are trying to photograph a baby or two. Thanks!
If it has changed it's possible you changed the mode to where it takes longer to focus.
for one, this camera has a "constant focus" function that will continuously monitor distance to target and keep the camera in focus, for fastest focusing, switch to this mode. also, are you pre-focusing your images?
Many novices don't know that you are supposed to 'prime' the camera by lightly pressing down the shutter and then when it lights green on the LED light and on the screen, you depress the shutter fully to take the picture. I experience fast picutures this way and I prefer not to even use constant-focus mode. give that a try.
if you don't 'prime' it, the camera basically doesnt know its about to take a picture, so when you hit the button it has to effectively say "OH CRAP picture time!", focus itself, and then snap the pic.
best of luck.
