Digimax 4500 shutter response

I have tried to take pictures of people jumping in the air (kind of a hobby of mine) and it seems hard to tell when the shutter is really going off.. I tried counting to three (for folks to jump on three) and pushed the shutter on two and they were still up and back down before it went off. Is this normal and/or can I force the shutter to go at the instant I press?

SOURCE: digimax i6 pmp SHUTTER problems!!!

Congratulations on fixing the problem! However I just wanted to let you and everyone else who reads this solution know that the part which failed on your camera is not actually the shutter. The shutter is deep inside the lens assembly right next to the image sensor. What you were dealing with was simply a protective cover for the lens. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

SOURCE: the shutter lens to the Samsung Digimax S500

This normally happens when the batteries are going flat. Replace batteries and the problem should be solved.

When i try to take a photo it comes up with F 2.8 1/30 on the screen for Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera. How can I fix this?

When the camera refuses t make a picture, please try putting the main dial to the automatic setting. (most camera's do have that little green camera logo on the dial. Put it there. Then try again.
When you tried one of the manual settings or the scene settings, and the camera does not get enough light, it could be it refuses to take the picture. Same when it can't focus, because there is not enough contrast.

When i try to take a photo it comes up with F 2.8 1/30 on the screen on my Samsung Digimax S500

There's nothing to fix. These numbers aren't showing up on the picture itself, are they? The camera is simply telling you the aperture and shutter speed for the current picture (f/2.8 and 1/30 of a second).

Camera turns off when shutter button is pressed.

[source]Question about Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera[/source]
Try replacing batteries (high Ah photographic type).
The lens motor & electronics may be draining power if Ah capacity has dropped too low. At night, it could be that your flash is trying to fire (another drain), or shutter timer / mirror staying open longer.

When using flash, my sony cyber-shot dsc-t10 takes forever to take pictures!

Have you tried Hi-Speed memory cards, as writing speed of the card affects the response time of camera, I am using Sony MSX-M2GN 2GB and it's gives me quite good response.

Other thing you might try is format the memory card using camera, camera has card format functionality and it does also improve the performance of the camera.

My camera seems to short out and there are horizontal lines in the pictures.

get new batteries, if recharging your current batteries does not work (to stop it shorting out).

reduce your shutter exposure, by changing to Manual Mode (M), selecting +/-, and then the left button (flash) around the Menu OK button. Mine works fine at 1s shutter speed, but was showing horizontal lines before that ...

Shutter will not open/close (Disengaged from motor - "flopping" loose)

Well, replacement of the shutter unit (lens barrier)instead of the repair seems more realistic... Please contact your nearest Sony Service for the price estimate. If you need more info please advice. Arpi
