You need to practice the correct shutter button technique. You need to press the shutter button half-way and wait for the focus to lock (it will beep) and then, when the moment is right, press the rest of the way for an instant picture with no "lag time".

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.

When you take a picture there is a delay before it finishes, so taking kids pics are out of the question..how can this be fixed or is it made that way


If you are referring to the delay when you press the shutter button and when the camera actually takes the picture, this is called "shutter lag" and is common to all point and shoot cameras. You need to learn the "half press". This means that you press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep). Then, while holding the button in, you can recompose the shot and when the moment is right, press the rest of the way for an "instant" (or close to it) shot.

I want to have the camera take a pic of my family on its own


Yes. You can even choose between 2 seconds and 10 seconds. Put the people in the shot. Focus the camera on them by holding the shutter button down halfway, and without releasing the shutter button, press the button all the way down to start the self-timer. (That's what the manual says. I go into the menu on the camera and set it up that way.) To do it from the menu: when the camera is on, hit the menu/ok key. The self-timer mode will pop up. Hit the right arrow. Here you can choose between the 2 and 10 second timer options. Select one. The timer won't start until you have pressed the shutter button halfway to focus and press the shutter button all the way down as stated earlier.

Shutter Speed


Two things to try, 1) The release button is a two stage process. Pushing the release button 1/2 way allows the camera to focus on the subject. It needs a few milli-seconds to do this. A full depress releases the shutter, but it you don't allow the camera to focus, things get messed up.

2) Holding a camera of this type with outstretched arms is a sure way to get poor shots. I use my Fuji S5000 with the viewfinder rather than the LCD display for framing shots just like I was using an SLR/DSLR

Autofocus not working


When the camera is OUT OF FOCUS, these are the steps that you could try:

1 Power Reset
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

2 Distance
- When the distance between the camera and the subject is too close,
the strength of the light can cause the picture to overexposed and
be blurred. On the contrary, if the distance is too far,
the beam is too weak to shed enough light on the subject.
Allow yourself enough space between you and your subject.

3 Shutter
- If you press the shutter before the flash is fully charged,
the flash will not be able to emit enough light and therefore
the image can be blurred.

4 Surrounding Light
- Use the fill-in flash mode to create a balanced shot when
the surrounding light is very bright.

5 Backlight
- Use the backlight control feature when the background
is brighter than the subject.

6 Cleaning
- Clean the lenses with a smooth piece of cloth.

7 ASR (Advanced Shake Reduction)
- Put in ASR mode to prevent any blur

8 Master Reset
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds for changes to be saved

* If it still does not work, you need to send the camera for repair.
Just contact the Manufacturer so they could tell you how to send camera safely.

Taking a photo of the family, delaying the camera until I can get into the shot.


Sure, follow these steps...
  • Set everyone in an even composition, close together, maybe some standing, some sitting, whatever strikes you as a good picture.
  • Put the camera on a tripod or other tall article
  • Press the Mountain/Macro/Timer button until the (clock/timer) icon is displayed on the viewer. The button to press is just above the MF (Manual Focus letters)
  • Press the shutter button all the way down to activate the timer.
    • Press once for ten-second delay
    • Press twice for three-second delay
    • Press a third time to stop the timer
  • Jump into the shot! =)
The lamp next to the lens will start to blink and continue until one second before the picture is taken. The lamp will then stay solid during the last second to warn about the picture being taken.

TROUBLESHOOTING c-750


There are a couple issues related to "slow" that I have with my C-750, and this is how I get around them.

One is the write speed to the xD card. This can prevent you from taking sequential pictures quickly, as the camera displays the current picture it is writing until it finishes. You can make the image of the current picture go away and use your viewfinder again, while the camera is writing the picture, by pressing the shutter button halfway and releasing it. Then you can see your subject in the viewfinder again!

Second is the delay between the time the shutter button is pressed and the time the shutter actually opens (when the camera actually takes the picture). This can be fixed by lining up your shot and pressing the shutter button halfway and holding it for a few seconds. This will give the camera time to adjust and lock focus, shutter speed, etc. There is a small green dot on the display below the battery indicator which will blink a few times when the button is pressed halfway, then remain on steady. When the green dot is steady, the camera is ready. Press the shutter button, and the camera should immediately take the picture.
