Flash flicker is the camera trying to get enough light to focus, It occurs when you press the shutter release part of the way down.
Try the same thing outside, ensure you press the shutter real ease all the way down. If it still does not fire, switch the lens to manual focus (sliding switch on the side of the lens, move from A to M) If the camera shoot then, the camera is struggling to auto focus.
I'm not sure I already asked you something, but it looks to me, you are new with digital camera's. The digital cameras all have a feature called auto focus. DSLRs and some expensive system cameras do have an extra sensor to autofocus, while you are pressing the shutter release button. they sometimes can focus in a few hundreds of a second. Most other cameras use the same sensor as the one the picture is captured on.they look for contras differences and some other things. When you press the button half, the camera starts focusing the picture. That can take a few tenths of a second, but when the light is bad, or the subject you try to focus on has bad contrast conditions, it can take up to one second or more. when the camera is focused it will show a green light of give a beep. Then you can press the shutter complete. Still the camera has to switch from focus yo capture. Also a tenth of a second or more.
I understand it is annoying when you are used to cameras with a film, because when you pressed the button, the picture was shot. If you want that again with a digital camera, you almost are convicted to a DSLR. Even the cheaper ones shoot that quick. But they are bulkier, heavy and quick.
Sure you are pressing the shutter realise button half, so the camera can focus?
Only when the middle AF-point (square in the middle) becomes green and you hear a beep, you can press the button compete to make the picture. With live view, you degrade your camera to a point and shoot. Focusing takes longer that way. Can be handy is special situations, but the focusing could be a pain, when you are used of taking pictures trough the view finder.
The LCD picture is clear indicates that the lens is clear enough to capture the image, if there would be any disturbance on the lens you would come to know on the LCD itself.
When you push the button to shoot , it could be that you are pressing the button just half way which is a function used to focus on the object before full press of the button or actual shot of the image.
I would recommend you to half press the button till you focus on your image and then when your hands are steady and there is no shake on the camera , go ahead and press the button full which would result in the image being taken.
When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.
I have the same phone and the same problem it does not happen all the time. I quick fix is to cut the phone off remove the 1.Battery 2. sim card 3.memory card. Reinstall them in the 3 first 2 second 1 third. Reformatting the card can work but when you are not at a computer to transfer your pictures to you do not want to reformat you will lose them. This 1,2,3 is the way I fix my sony when this problem occurs.Good luck. I have all the updated software a drivers from sony and I still get this problem some times. Hope this works for you.
As the others said, there are the two settings. I had a similar problem, then realized how it worked. You need to not press very hard while it focuses first. Then you can press all the way down, if you hold it all the way down, it doesn't recognize that you've already passed the first "Focus" pressure point and gone into the second "Capture" pressure point.
Before a digital camera is ready to take a picture, the electronics inside the camera must get ready to capture the picture and save it to the memory card or the internal camera memory.
Press the shutter button half-way (to its first detent) to set the exposure and focus. When the ready light is green, continue pressing the shutter button completely down to take the picture. The picture is taken almost immediately.
