Question about Olympus Camedia C-4040 Zoom Digital Camera
I have noticed that my camera (Camedia C-4040z)takes longer and longer to transition from one photo to the next... ie.. I am often missing getting a second shot of something as it is still 'writing' it to the media card. Sometimes formatting the card or fresh batteries seems to help but other times it doesn't.. Is this a common problem and is there a 'cure'?

Get a set of rechargeable batteries and a charger, and that will probably solve you problem. Digital cameras draw a lot of power and alkaline batteries have to struggle to provide the power in sufficient quanity. The rechargeable NiMH batteries can supply large amounts of power when necessary and a charge will last about 3 times as long as alkaline batteries. They do discharge slowly if the camera is not used for a long period of time.

The only two things you can do to/for a digital camera is change batteries and change memory card. If your rechargeable batteries have been in use for a long time, they may be dying. You could try new rechargeable batteries. Your camera uses Smart Media which was never particularly fast. It too could be dying. Try a new memory card. If you are shooting in TIFF format, that could explain the lengthened time between shots.
