The Sony DSC-H2 and DSC-H5 have a terrible shutter button design and the tiny little "bubble" that is responsible for the "half press focus" can be easily damaged.

    hi
    if you are feeling a little DIY, then its not a terribly difficult problem, to fix but if you have stupid hands or are not confident in your abilties then rather let the pro's handle it.
    step 1 Download the service manual, just google it, :D
    Basically you need to replace part number 1-479-699-11 its the whole assembly that contains the little bubble switch mentioned above , its not very difficult to do but be very VERY careful of the capacitator for the flash, it will shock you and its not fun, and can damage the camera, in the service manual you can find step by step instructions on how to discharge it, but even if you have a little doubt, let a PRO do it!

    i "repaired" the bubble switch by manipulating the blue ribbon harness where it goes into the black plastic housing on the front of the unit.
    it normally curves out and down into the lower assembly, but i pushed the curve inwards and created an artificial bubble which now allows the AF to function correctly.
    i don't know how long it will last but until i get the money to buy the whole assembly it will satisfy my needs.

Shutter takes to long to take pic and subject has moved.


This is a common problem with compact point&shoot cameras.
You can reduce the delay by anticipating the shot. Pressing the shutter release button halfway focuses and meters the exposure. Keep holding it there until the right moment, then press it the rest of the way.
