First, make sure your camera's firmware is fully updated through the official Canon website. Also make sure your memory card is formatted. Try taking a photo. If it still isn't working, then move to the next step...

Step two, try using another lens. If you go to any camera shop, they should have lenses you can try using for free. If the camera still won't take photos using another lens, then it is most likely a mechanical problem with the shutter button itself and should be taken to a Canon certified repair shop.

To take screenshot of webpages, you can use screenshot extensions which you can download from Google Play. If you don't want to download any plugins on your browser, you can make use of some online applications like Webpage Screenshot Capture, Web-capture and Stie2Pic.

You say in your description that you're "focused in". That means that you've pressed the shutter button half-way and allowed the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep). You need to maintain that half-press until the moment you want to snap the picture and then press the rest of the way. That will give you a faster, "instant" picture. Is that what you do?

In the camera menu, there should be a setting for "review" to allow you to set the number of seconds the picture remains on the screen. Also, you can always review the pictures you've taken by pressing the review button on the camera...it's usually a button with an arrow that points to the right.

When I push the shutter button down, it takes 3 to 4 seconds before the shutter opens to snap the picture. What's with that ?


You need to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way.

I can take a picture but its blurry


Set your camera to auto and try again. The setting you are using determines what your picture will look like. If you want to use other settings you should know how they work so you can get what you want. Otherwise set your camera to auto. You will find this on the small dial with the different settings indicated on it. If you do this and your picture is still blurry, then when snapping your shot, press the button slightly down (not completely at first) wait a few seconds and then press it down completely to take your shot.

Canon EOS 350 timer problems


On the back of the camera there is a small button just to the right of the top of the LCD which has what looks like a little clock. Pressing this button will take you through the 3 modes of operation which are:
Single shot, multiple shots and timer. Watch the LCD panel and you should see the icon change when you press the button. When the single rectangle is showing, that is single shot, when it is multiple staggered rectangles that is multi shot and when you see a little clock that is timer mode. Usually I shoot with multi shot mode.

Sony DSC-P72 won't snap a picture


Have you done a "hard" reset?

Under the jack cover (below the zoom rocker on the back of the camera) there is a small "reset" button. You'll need to press it with a sharp object, and hold it down for a few seconds. If it was a setting problem, this should resolve it.

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.
