You need to learn the "half-press". This means you press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep)...you then can recompose while holding the button until the right moment and then press the rest of the way for an instant shot.

Sometimes, when we start the carmera and want to take a photo and press the button to take one, a small red light starts to shine. we didn't configure anything on the settings. this is really anoying


Sounds like a feature that comes on when using flash. The light comes on so in low light you can see and focus on what you are trying to photograph. Then we shutter button is depressed all the way the flash goes and picture is taken. Try turning off flash function.

When taking a picture, you must press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and then press the rest of the way when the moment is right for an instant picture. Is that what you do?

When I "click", it takes forever to actually take the picture


You must press the shutter button half-way to allow the camera to lock in the focus and then you can press it the rest of the way for an almost instant picture.

Stopped taking pictures


How old is the film in camera & when did you put in the film?

Polaroid's battery is built in with the film package.
If the package is old or been in the camera for a long time battery may be low or dead.

Try changing film out.

Good Luck! Hope this helped. Please rate.
MSG back if you need more help.

How do I use 360' lens on my Canon G9?


The C1 & C2 settings are for "Custom" settings. You'll most likely want to set your camera either to "P" or "Auto" mode.
To have it delay for 10 seconds and take 3 shots, press the "Menu" button and then scroll down to "Drive Settings". Then, choose the following settings:
Self-Timer: "C" Delay: 10 sec. Shots: 3 shots
Then, press the "Func./Set" key to lock in the change. Next, press the custom timer button on the back of the camera and then choose the "C" timer using the directional keys. Then, press teh "Func.Set" button.
Lastly, set up your camera, press the shutter release, and the timer light should start blinking. 10 seconds later, the camera will take 3 photos in succession.
Hope this helps!

EOS 30D is slow to fire.


Are you sure you aren't in the delay setting in drive mode? This camera has 2 delay settings, one for 2 seconds between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo, and one with 10 seconds delay - often used when you want to be in the photo (e.g. self-portrait or group photo).

If you aren't in the delay mode, then I need to know more about your settings. What shooting mode are you using? What type of photo are you trying to take (portrait, landscape, sports)? Are you shooting indoors, outdoors, bright sunlight, overcast, etc.?

Blurriness


This is a great camera! Are you using the focus guide to focus on your main subject. Move the camera until your main subject is in the bos ten depress the shutter button 1/2 way down to focus the subject. Leave you finger there at the focus point-You can then move the camera to take in more objects or people and gently push the shutter all the way down. Generally, the causes of out of focus photos are:

the camera in the wrong mode-just start with the general mode-usually a little camera symbol

do not change any settings-if you have go to the menu button and settings and go back to default settings

the focus feature of the camera 9explained above is not being used

You are too close to the subject (use the zoom instead)

You are experiencing camera movement by pressing on the shutter too hard or moving your hands. A tripod always works best.


You can go to www.panasonic.com and obtain a manual for your camera if you do not have it.

If your camera still gives you blurry photos, please get back to me with any info that might help- have you dropped it or gotten it wet or anything like that?
