Why does my Coolpix S220 pause before snaping a picture?


Most compact digital cameras exhibit some degree of "shutter lag." When you press the shutter release button, the camera must acquire focus, meter the light to set the proper exposure, and switch the sensor from viewing to recording before it can take the picture. One of the things you get when you pay for a more sophisticated camera is a reduction in this lag.

One way to reduce this lag is to anticipate the action. Press the shutter release button halfway to let the camera focus and meter, then wait for the right moment to press the button the rest of the way.

Will switching to an sdhc memory card make any difference in 'shutter lag time'?


No. The shutter lag is due to the camera needing to focus and meter the light. The size of the memory card makes no difference to the speed. A faster memory card might let you take another picture quicker, but the difference would only be a small fraction of a second.

Shutter lag is simply a fact of life for most point&shoot cameras. You can reduce it somewhat by anticipating the action, pressing the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter, then pressing the button the rest of the way when the action peaks.

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.

Shutter-release


After the focus is confirmed, the Shutter-release time lag for the DiMAGE E201 is approximately 0.4 second. If the shutter-release button is depressed in a quick motion without making any pause to confirm focus, approximately 1.9 second is necessary.

Shutter Lag-Time


The G5 has a rather short shutter lag and a rather lengthy focus lag. So if you half depress the shutter release to focus, and then moments later fully depress the shutter release I expect you will find very little lag. But I would not expect a prosumer model to focus fast. hope this helps,

Shutter Lag


Card speed won't interfere with shutter lag. The lag is much less (near non-existent) if you pre-focus. Or use manual focus with small enough aperture to get lots of depth of field. Make sure your kids are in the focus zone and just snap away.

Shutter lag


I don't know what your measurement conditions were, but there's no way the shutter lag after focus is 1/2 second. I don't have a quantitative number at my finger tips, but it surely falls into the "instantaneous" category, as far as I can tell. I've taken plenty of action shots and candids, including shots of flying birds, that will back that up

Shutter Lag


Thats going to be a problem with most digital cameras in that price range (and even some $$ ones) really the only thing I can recommend is PF.F.S. That would be Pre-Focus -- Frame -- Shot. Many people try to frame a photo up then focus/shot all in one, but this does not always work. So if your looking to speed things up a little, just half press the button to get a prefocus and then do your magic. Really everything I talked about above was Focus-lag, not actually shutter lag. But since this is often confussed I thought I would add it in.
