This camera is not a good fast action camera! The best you can do is use a very fast memory card in it, and lock the focus to be averaged to where you want it.

One thing I found was that locking the focus to the range I want to use helps a little. Some of the delay it has is from finding the proper focus point.

If you want a fast action camera, you should be looking at a digital true SLR type.

How do I set the camera so I don't have a delay, I try to take a picture and there seems to be a delay and I miss the shot.


This is a common situation with almost all point-and-shoot cameras. The delay is because the camera has to do so much when you push the button. Bulkier and more expensive SLRs eliminate the delay by having more hardware to handle the various tasks.

You can reduce the delay by anticipating the action. If you know where the action is going to happen (a child blowing out the candles on a cake, or right in front of a soccer goal, for example) aim the camera there and press the shutter button halfway and hold it there. This meters the exposure and focuses the lens. Then when the action finally happens, press the shutter button the rest of the way. With the camera having done most of the work when you pressed the button halfway, there will be much less delay.

Again, the delay is a basic "feature" of the camera design. It can't be completely eliminated, but by pressing the shutter release halfway it can be reduced.

When i go to shoot an action photo like something that is moving the camera always delays. i focus on the moving target but when the button is pressed the subject moves out of the view and then the shot is...


OHH - I can met this problem before , the camera is trying to auto focus and in the time it does the focus the action has passed.
Take a light & speed setting - then switch to manual mode OR manual focus , this will eliminate the AUTO focus looking for best light reading distance etc.
Some cameras also have a "fast" setting which is usually a 'running man' icon - click this button and the picture will drop back to 5mpixels but it will take a quick shot instead of saving then scanning at a slower speed.

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

Delayed shutter


Shutter lag is a universal problem with digital cameras...more so with the point-and-shoots than the slr types. To avoid the problem, press the shutter button half-way to lock in the focus then press the rest of the way when the moment is right and you will get no shutter lag.

Taking photos with Kodak Easyshare Digital camera M753


with the price of the camera, there is a delay for any action shots.
you just have to adjust for the deplay.
on the other hand, the camera is getting cheaper, you should be able to pickup a decent camera around $200 that will take action shots.

Busy Signal when taking pictures


A few possible causes:

1) You have a slow memory card. Borrow from someone one of newer fast SD cards and test it in your camera. Take your card to a store that sells cameras, and try shooting with their cameras to see if you get the same delay.

2) Slow camera. The only solution here is to update. Many camera review sites give timing how long it takes a camera to write an image to a card.

3) Camera settings. If you are shooting in low-light situation, camera takes longer shots. There should be a warning icon about this. Easy way to deal with this is to use a tripod, to put camera on something solid. Check for "Slow Synch" setting - set it to Off if you don't know what it is.

Miss all the action shots with this camera


The longest part of the shutter delay is caused by the autofocus mechanism. Most cameras will let you press the button half-way down and wait until the autofocus is locked. Then wait for the action to occur. When you press the button the remaining distance, there will be a shutter delay of about 0.2 seconds before the picture is taken. Using that technique will let you capture action shots. There is no way to improve shutter delay on any particular camera. The newer digital cameras are showing improvement in this area. Some are achieving autofocus lock in 0.4 seconds and shutter delay of an additional 0.1 seconds.
