Photo review is delayed after taking a picture and the continuous shooting method will only take 2 pictures approx 4 seconds apart


the delay of producing pictures might be caused by these conditions:
-the active d-lightning option is turned on
-the noise redution option is turned on
-the camera has been used to take more than 100,000 shots

the mirror in DSLR has it`s own lifecycle, normally they will unstable after 100,000 shots cycle
and it is very normal

hope this advice help you with your problem

How do I use and/or set the timer on the Power Shot A530


In the shooting mode, press the Func/Set button. Scroll down the icons to the 'drive mode' icon (a square). Then scroll right to the icon showing a circled 2 (2 second delay) or a circled 10 (10 second delay). Press the Func/Set button to select.

To return to normal, use the same procedure, but select the square icon (single shot).

Why is there a delay?? Nikon D90


Sounds like you turned on Exposure delay mode (menu d10). This is similar to the "locking up the mirror" (or somethign) feature on canons.

YOu only need it when you doing a tripod shot with long exposure and you want to minimise absolutly all possibility of shake from the camera its self. Lifting the SLR mirror will cause small shake. Generally you can turn this off (i've felt it ona few times my accident and been confused for a second)

Very long lag time to shoot and between shots... sometimes!


hello again after researching i did find out that there is about a 3 second delay if using the flash option did any of your delays happen when not using the flash ? also does this happen when using the camera in auto mode ? turning the knob on the top to the green auto mode i'm thinking it also could have to do with your shutter speed or try going to the menu and changing the shutter speed to a faster speed your self then taking pictures in av or tv mode. here's a comment from a review on the PowerShot a590 that might help. Camera performance is very good. The PowerShot A590 is ready to shoot after a 1.2 second delay -- pretty snappy. Focus speeds were very good, even in low light situations. Shutter lag wasn't a problem, and shot-to-shot delays were minimal, except when you're using the flash, which is slow to charge. The camera can shoot continuously at 1.5 frames/second until your (high speed) memory card is full. The A590's battery life is 10% better than its predecessors, and is well above average for its class. The camera supports the USB 2.0 High Speed standard, for fast data transfer to a Mac or PC.
and if you still have the problem with out the flash then the only other solution is a faster flash memory card there's cards made just for digital camera's that store pictures and format quicker.
hope this helps your enjoy your camera.

Flash is delaying


The self-timer is on. Press the button on the back of the camera to the right of the displays just under the AV button. The display icon will change from :-
Hand sweeping round clock = self timer mode
Simple square = single shot mode
Stacked squares = multi shot (keep finger pressed to keep shooting)

Make sure you have your flash & timing set where it is supposed to be, usually between 120 & 180. This is the shutter timing and flash duration. It is the syncronizing speed setting. If possible, turn off the automatic review, this slows things up. Also, if possible, use a power cord for the flash instead of batteries. Not all have this feature but, the flash is ready for the next shot in about 1 second.

I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark. My flash card is a...


The 430ex flash is E-TTL, that means it adapts is power to the scene. If you shoot a scene at 10 meters, the flash will choose to flash at the max power, and will take time to recharg. Try to get closer to your subject, and remember that the flash can only lighting your subject, not the whole scene.

Just purchased a canon A590. on page 84 of user guide, continuous shooting is described. I'm somewhat familiar with SD cards, but Canon implies that I have to use their MSH type SD card to use the...


I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames per second of continous shooting. But it also identifies a 20 and 30fps which refers to the movie mode. If the manual states a MSH type Sd card, it usually means that the card may be of a faster recording speed to take continous shots. But I think what you might mean continous shots could be the 3 or 5 second burst on the Digital SLR cameras. These modes are usually for sports and very good for Formular 1 racing pictures. The specs of your camera does not have a sports mode or any continous burst. So you will be stuck in the 1.4fps levels. Let me know if this helps.

Cannon sd 600,self timer How to use the selftimer


1. Make sure the camera is in shooting mode (silhouette of camera)
2. Press Func/Set button
3. Scroll down to Drive Mode icon (usually single square)
4. Use left/right arrow to select 2-sec or 10-sec delay (clock with 2 or 10 next to it)
5. Press Func/Set button

Now whenever you press the shutter button, the camera will delay 2 or 10 seconds before snapping the picture. Remember to set back to single shot (single square) or continuous shooting (three overlaid squares) mode when done.
