All autofocus/autoexposure cameras will have some delay if the shutter is simply pressed fully before the focus and exposure are locked. The amount of time this takes has little to do with the camera and a lot to do with the conditions under which you are shooting. A camera may take much longer to lock focus in a low light situation than when there is a lot of light. Some cameras adjust focus continually and so there is a good chance that they will lock on faster than others but all cameras will have certain situations when they are puzzled and take a long time to complete the picture. The problem can be solved in a couple of ways. 1) You always hold down the shutter button half-way to allow the settings to lock before snapping the picture. It should be almost instantaneous after that. 2) If the camera allows a manual focus, you can pre-focus and eliminate that step in the process.

I have the S70 now.. and it's a long shutterlag, that is correct.. but i've taken photos all the day now and it's not a big problem, you get used to it right away.. I can recommend this camera very much! It's just fabulous! I had the Fuji MX-700 and Canon S10 before and this one is soo much better in all aspects.. And the manual focus, aperture/shutter controls are VERY easy to use.. but it's only a few preset focuses to choose from. The camera was bigger than i thought but the quality of most pictures i've taken are just amazing. One thing i miss from the Canon is the infra-red focus assist.. the night shots are very amazing! well.. ask whatever you want to know and i'll tell you ;-)

24raq-3 makes a bubbling sound when not in use. This is actually from the AC unit inside the house. It is a wall unit.


An older fridge can make some strange noises. Mine sounds like wind blowing across a chimney.

A friend also complained his fridge sometimes sounded as though it was boiling. Someone told him to turn it upside down for a time and then right way up four 4 hours before switching on again.

He rang me thinking the guy was crazy but I told him I had heard something similar many years ago and in fact I had actually followed the instructions I was given and turned the fridge end-over-end a few times and restored it to health. My friend also seems to think his fridge sounds better...

Someone has hacked my gmail. Help?


This sounds like a scam to me - If I was you, i'd log into my gmail account and change my password. Beware of people trying to get you to tell them your password either by phone, SMS or email because 'apparently' your account has been hacked.

Have just started free trial. With Netflix yesterday and not let me on to it say had trial


This sounds like a time to contact Netflix. It is very likely that you entered some information wrong, and they think your information looks like someone else's. Something is wrong, and they probably think you have already had a free trial. I'm told that's the most common reason they won't give someone a free trial.

I have a 1998 Lexus GS400, I turn the switch but the car won't start. It sounds like it wants to start but it won't "grab" it's kinda hard to explain. Please any suggestions. I was told it was the head...


The first tests should be to check for the proper fuel pressure and the presence of proper spark. If you don't know how to do that or have the right tools, then there's really nothing you can do but have it towed to a shop

When someone is offline but shows him online to his freinds ?


Time zones or time delays may produce a difference in time from the point where you see him and the point where he says no..but it would be a very few seconds if anything is possible with technology

My hotmail account has apparently been hacked, so microsoft blocked it.i tried to unblock it by verifying some of the account info but i didn't remember all of the info so nothing happened.


This sounds fishy from the start. How would Microsoft know if someone hacked your email account? As far as I know, MS don't go around detecting hacked accounts and closing them down.
Secondly, what info were you verifying, where and to whom?
Sounds like you might have accidentally given all your personal details to a phishing scam email pretending to be from MS.
If you still have time, go to the hotmail website and click I cannot get access to my account and try to use the zecondary email address to retrieve your password. Failing that, you can maybe answer the secret question you setup.

From sitting so long your carb has gummed up and now must be removed and cleaned. Replace the plug with a new one, a fouled spark plug will not spark.
