Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

Delay Between Flash and Taking Photo

Hi! I have a Canon A95 that has performed flawlessly until a few days ago. When I depress the shutter button halfway and focus, then depress it fully, the flash occurs right away (as always), but there is a delay of a second or two before the final "click" occurs. All the photos I took since then have come out blurry. I haven't changed any settings on my camera (and there is no chance that anyone else did). I changed the batteries, but that didn't help. I'd really appreciate any help in solving this problem.

I also have this problem on a Canon A85. For some reason setting the camera to landscape allows the shutter and flash to work together properly.

Why does my canon power shot hesitate before taking a picture


It's probably acting normal. Every camera (in one of the auto modes) must focus before it takes the image. In low light situations, or low contrast situations (white dog against a white background), many cameras have difficulty finding focus. This causes a delay before the shutter clicks. Try taking your camera out on a nice sunny day and take a pic. If there's no delay, there's your answer. If in a low light situation, click your flash on. That may help a bit to reduce the delay.

How do you delay the shutter so you can be in the


Press "Func." button. Scroll up or down to "Drive Mode". Scroll to the right to the icon showing "10" for 10 seconds (the other is 2 seconds). Press "Func" again. Put the camera on a table or chair (best/safest to use a tripod). Press the shutter, and get in the picture!!!

Canon powershot a95 picture comes out like this http://i50.tinypic.com/152onl3.jpg video works fine.. i just try every setting possible and no success thanks


Hi,

It is bad LCD panel or CCD Sensor. Play the saved Video's or images and see, if you are getting the same kind of image. If Yes, then you have Bad LCD Panel. You need to get it repaired. But, to be really Honest, Repair would not make any sense as the new camera would be around the same price what you would spend on repair.

If You could see the Saved images very well, then this is CCD sensor Malfunction. This is a Common issue with Canon. There were so many recalls. Repair would not be a wise option. You need to give a Call to Canon to see, if this is under Recall or under Warranty. If yes, get it replaced unless buy a new one.

Look at a Post published few years ago :-

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Very long lag time to shoot and between shots... sometimes!


hello again after researching i did find out that there is about a 3 second delay if using the flash option did any of your delays happen when not using the flash ? also does this happen when using the camera in auto mode ? turning the knob on the top to the green auto mode i'm thinking it also could have to do with your shutter speed or try going to the menu and changing the shutter speed to a faster speed your self then taking pictures in av or tv mode. here's a comment from a review on the PowerShot a590 that might help. Camera performance is very good. The PowerShot A590 is ready to shoot after a 1.2 second delay -- pretty snappy. Focus speeds were very good, even in low light situations. Shutter lag wasn't a problem, and shot-to-shot delays were minimal, except when you're using the flash, which is slow to charge. The camera can shoot continuously at 1.5 frames/second until your (high speed) memory card is full. The A590's battery life is 10% better than its predecessors, and is well above average for its class. The camera supports the USB 2.0 High Speed standard, for fast data transfer to a Mac or PC.
and if you still have the problem with out the flash then the only other solution is a faster flash memory card there's cards made just for digital camera's that store pictures and format quicker.
hope this helps your enjoy your camera.

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.?

A95 LCD screen black and unable to take photos


There are quite a few of us with symilar problem, but the screen is not completely black: it has some purple or pinkish color when facing light. Old pics and menu can still be viewed. I noticed 4 symilar threads on Canon A95 within the last 5 mins without any search, just looking at the top questions.

White streaks on all photos but not video


Sounds like the shutter isn't working properly.

It should be looked at by at technician.

Delay in picture taking


Melzim, another user, is exactly right. The lower-end digital cameras experience a significant shutter delay when using the camera; it's an unfortunate fact. 
What you can do, outside of investing in a newer model (which do have improvements over the earlier models) is simply try to anticipate your subject's movement - or concentrate on portraiture, etc. 
There is a huge value, over time, in having pictures of smiling families, standing still, believe it or not. 
The A85 is simply not the camera to use to freeze action.
