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!

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.

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.

Wont stay on. It'll load for 3 secs then turn off


The Calculator has a feature that takes it into standby after a certain delay of inactivity. Possible values of the delay are 1 min, 3 min, 5 min, 10 min, and 30 min.
In view of this, your 3 sec value seems too short. I suspect that the batteries are depleted.

In OS 2.x, press 5: Settings & status, then 3:Handheld Setup. Look for drop down box to the right of Power Standby, and select a longer delay.

Setting the timer


Press the 4-way switch downwards to cycle through the selftimer modes: First press shows the selftimer symbol, which means 10 secs delay, next press shows selftimer2 symbol, which gives 2 secs delay. When delay is set, press the shutter button to take the picture. The selftimer lamp will blink untill the picture is taken.

My kodak ezshare z740


Press the shutter button halfway to focus, then when the subject is in a pose you like press it fully to take the picture.  If you just press the button without stopping halfway, the camera needs to focus, that is most likely causing the delay.

There is a long delay taking pictures


Check to see if the self-timer is on. You can set the timer to 0, 2, or 10 sec. A 2 sec. delay will help to prevent blurry pictures. But setting the self-timer to 0 will take the picture as soon as you push the button.
