Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

There is a long delay from the moment I press the "shoot" button to the moment the picture actually takes. I use this camera to take photos of my one year old and I'm missing all the good moments because she is on to the next thing so quickly. How do I change this??

My nikon Coolpix s6500 There a long pause when I take pics? how do I get that to stop the long pause?


One of the flaws of Point and Shoot cameras is the delay to take photos. In general you can reduce this time as follows:

Set up camera and hold it still frame the photo and press the shutter half way. If it can FOCUS (green rectangle) then all is GOOD. I will call this ready mode.

When the moment you want to photograph arrives, with a ready camera, you press the shutter all the way. The photo is taken quickly. There is a delay to DISPLAY it.

I hope this helps.

There is a delay between the time I press the button to take the picture, and when the picture actually is snoapped. Can I make this delay a shorter time?


This is a common situation with many compact point&shoot cameras. The camera has to do a lot of work between the time you press the shutter release button and it takes the picture; set the focus, meter the light and set the exposure, switch from showing the real-time image on the LCD to capturing and storing a single image, and more. Larger, heavier, and more expensive DSLRs have additional hardware to reduce this "shutter lag" to nothing, compact cameras don't.

There is something you can do to reduce the time, however. If you know where the action is going to happen (a kid getting ready to blow out the candles on a cake, for example), press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter. Hold the button there until the action happens, then press it the rest of the way. This lets the camera get most of the work done before taking the picture.

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.

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.

Hi Experts, I bought an Olympus C170 camera 6 years before. It was good... recently due to some problem Technicians changed Lens in my camera.. Now the problem is I feel some delay time while I am...


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?

Delay of picture taking


This is normal behavior for most compact point&shoot cameras, especially one of such vintage. You can eliminate some (though not all) of the delay by pressing the shutter release button halfway to meter and focus, then press the button all the way at the peak moment.

Long delay from the time I push down on the button to take the picture and the actual picture is there anyway to speed that up


Pre-focus by pressing the shutter button half-way until the camera beeps, then press the rest of the way when the moment is right.

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.

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.?

Delay when taking picture.


The delay is absolutely normal. When you press the button to take a picture, the camera takes its 1-3 seconds to focus on the image, prepare the flash. Once that's done, the camera "clicks" and the photograph is taken.

Happy shooting!
