Re: to much time between photos
Hi, there are usually two reasons for this, either the battery or memory card.
Try a fresh set of alkaline batteries as they have a higher voltage than rechargeable ones. If you notice an improvement then look on eBay for a set of Lithium Ion batteries which are rechargeable but also have a higher voltage than the NiMh cells that are usually used.
The other factor is the speed of the memory card, newer cards & higher quality cards can be written to faster, check your local camera shop & they may advise or even let you try other types.
Lastly look at the quality settings, if you're just taking snaps to email do you really need the highest quality setting? Try setting a lower quality that writes less data to the card.

Could be the settings need adjusting.....to help you should check these settings and set to!
ISO to High ISO Auto.
AF to Auto
When taking the photo press the shutter button halfway till the window shows a green light (if the window red then not focused so release button and try again) then continue to press the shutter button till the picture is taken!
Sounds like the camera was adjusted for flourescent lighting. The PowerShot should have a menu with various Lighting scenarios such as natural, outdoor, nighttime, sepia, etc. I would check this first. It should be easy to find. If you can't adjust the color properly with these pre-set options, there may be an RGB adjuster although I doubt it. You can certainly use a photo editor on your computer easily as well to adjust the color balance easily. If you don't use Photoshop there are free online photo editors such as http://www.gimp.org. You want to look for Color Balance and an RGB slide bar, it is quite fun to play around with.
Go to this site and try emailing them: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the Canon Powershot cameras and they are wonderful for help with these. They do excellent work and are about half the price of Canon. Hope that helps, best of luck with the problem.
Try setting the white balance to fluorescent an compare. Also you could set your own white balance preset by shooting a white card as per page 59. Lastly you can play with the "tone adjustment" on page 80.

The following is a listing of the error codes you might see on the status panel of the PhotoMAX Fun! Digital 320 camera:
1.FL - Photo memory is full.
You cannot take more photos. Download and then erase the photos in your camera.
2.FE - Flash memory error.
A camera hardware error occurred. This can happen when the power is shut off before a photo is completely stored in the camera. Do not shut off the power until the green light comes back on steady after you take a photo.
3.bE - Hardware problem.
Turn the power switch on and off and see if the error message disappears. If the error message persists, the camera may need to be replaced.
4.Lo - Battery low.
Replace the camera battery as soon as possible. If you continue to use the camera, picture quality will be poor.
5.LL - Low light condition.
The camera does not have enough light to take a good photo. Improve the subject lighting if possible. Example: When taking indoor photos, add additional room lighting.
Basically you bought the wrong camera for your needs. The 95 can not do well under the conditions you describe. The ISO is fixed and to low for the amount of light you have available. The viewfinder begins to darken after the lens is wide open and the shutter speed is increased further. There are three possible cures. More light, not possible in your situation, faster lens or higher ISO, again not possible with your camera. Maybe you could convince them to play in the dayight. :)
