My S5IS is slow recycling for a second shot when the batteries are not fresh, and often after taking a flash pic.

Underexposed images


I hope you received some help already by this time. However, just for other readers shake, your issues has to do with your camera's settings. There are two things that initially determine the quality of pictures and these are:
1. Exposure and
2.Shutter speed

I believe your pictures are dark because settings on your camera feature a combination of fast shutter-speed with a lower value of aperture. Try adjusting those or shoot with a pre-programmed mode under different lighting conditions.

Canon s51s when pressing shutter halfway to focus image in viewfinder darkens and resulting photo is dark


Hi Tony, I note you modified your question twice on this problem. I offered some tips for you on the first question so check if that helps.

My tips are based on experience. I believe it is a mater of under-exposure on your pictures and you can correct it if you do a correct combination on the settings. Get hold of a manual of your camera and check all its capabilities. There may be a few features in your camera you are not familiar with yet - so check.

How do I change the shutter speed?


This is "shutter lag," the delay between pressing the shutter release button and the camera actually taking a picture. This is a common situation with many compact cameras. The camera has to focus on the subject, meter the exposure, and switch the circuitry from displaying on the screen to recording the image and saving it in memory. More sophisticated (and expensive) DSLRs eliminate this shutter lag by having more dedicated hardware for this.

With a compact camera, you can reduce the shutter lag by anticipating the shot. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter the exposure. Continue to hold the shutter release button halfway until the right time, then press it the rest of the way.

Cannon Powershot A-620 black screen can't review


Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder to take pictures. To turn the screen back on, just press this button one more time.

How do i shoot a video on this camera? I set it on Video and depress button but it only shoots a picture. I have no manual.


You have to push the button with the red dot directly behind the camera and you will see the record selection on the top right hand side of the screen and the time couner will start to progress on the bottom right side of the screen.
If you depress the shutter button you will only take one snapshot of what you are trying to video.
hope this helps

Out of focus pictures


Try allowing the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button halfway.  Wait for a beep then press the rest of the way to take the picture.  This should result in much sharper images.  If this helps please rate my solution.

Check:
1 - If you're on a shooting mode (not on a video mode);
2 - If you have enough power from batteries (maybe flash is necessary and power is not sufficient...);
3 - If memory card is in...
Try it...
