Time delay when taking pictures

Is there any way to remove the time delay when taking pictures. I have missed so many pictures of my Granddaughter that I've threatened to throw the camara away. I've tried all modes, but by the time the picture is taken, she has already moved or I end up with a picture of where she used to be. I've read the manual but can't find any reference to this characteristic. I've talked to other people, who complain about the same problem. As far as I'm concerned, the Instamatic is a better camara. At least with it you can get a shot of her first step instead of after she has fallen down.

You are experiencing "shutter lag", a common problem with point-and-shoot cameras. To eliminate the problem, you need to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (you will hear a beep)...you can then hold that position and when the right moment happens, press the rest of the way for an instantaneous picture. With a little practice, you will become very good at this procedure.

When I press the button to take a picture, it always has a delay and I end up missing the shot.


Most camera's need this time to autofocus but if you half depress the button before the camera autofocus should do its job in advance. The picture takes immediately then.

How do i take a time delay pic with my canona550 camera


I don't have your exact same camera but on mine you push the menu button, go to tolls and you'll see settings like +1 , +5 +10 these are the delay times once you select one you push the shutter and mine beeps and then beeps faster as it gets closer to the time out and then it takes the picture ( this is handy for taking pictures of yours elf and mine has a little light on the front that flases as it counts down and it stops after to takes the picture.

Using the self-timer
Use the self-timer when you want to be included in a picture, or to ensure a steady
Shutter button press. Place the camera on a tripod or flat surface.
1 In any picture-taking mode, press the Info button to turn on the shortcut icons.
2 Press to highlight the self-timer icon. Press to choose a setting:
10 seconds- A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time
to get into the scene).
2 seconds- A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, shutter
release on a tripod).
2 shot- The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture
is taken 8 seconds later.
3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down.
The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay.
Use the same procedure to take a 2- or 10-second self-timer video, but press the
Shutter button completely down.

There's a long delay from the time I push the button until the flash goes off and the picture actually takes. I miss the smiling child and get a turned head instead.


Press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and when the moment is right, press the rest of the way.

Delay of picture taking


This is normal behavior for most compact point&shoot cameras, especially one of such vintage. You can eliminate some (though not all) of the delay by pressing the shutter release button halfway to meter and focus, then press the button all the way at the peak moment.

How do I shorten the shutter speed.


Shutter lag is one (of the many) problems with compact point&shoot cameras, not seen in bulkier (costlier, more complicated) dSLRs. You can reduce the lag by pressing the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter beforehand. Keep the button half-pressed while anticipating the key moment, then press the button the rest of the way.

You'll have to release the button and half-press it again if the distance to the subject changes, or it moves to/from light/shadow.

Shutter button delay


The flash need to be fully charged before it would fire the shot.

In case the battery is old and supply power is not enough to boost the flash, it will await until the orange LED of flash indicator is no longer blinking, means ready to take picture with flash light.

Replace the new full battery will be better and faster to take shot with flash enable.
