Re: Why does it take so long to process a picture ?

All digital cameras require a few seconds of processing time per picture. During the processing time, the camera is enhancing the image, compressing it as a JPEG image file, and then writing to the flash memory.

Why does the camera lag when i take pictures?


The camera has to do a lot of work between the time you press the shutter release button and it takes a picture. It has to determine what the subject is and acquire focus, meter the light to set the exposure, and reconfiguring itself internally from displaying the image on the screen to saving it into memory. More sophisticated (and larger and heavier and more expensive) DSLRs alleviate the problem by throwing more hardware at it.

You can reduce the shutter lag by anticipating the action. Press the shutter release button halfway to make the camera focus and meter. Then, when the action peaks, press the shutter release button the rest of the way to take the picture.

How do i get my camera from having a time delay between flash and actual picture


This is a common situation with compact point&shoot cameras. Between the time you press the shutter release button and it takes a picture, it has a lot to do. It has to find the subject and focus on it, meter the light and set the exposure, perhaps set the white balance, and other things. Larger, more powerful (and more expensive) DSLRs have more powerful processors and additional hardware to speed up the process.

One way you can reduce this shutter lag is to press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter before you need the picture. Keep the shutter button pressed halfway until the action hits its peak, then press it the rest of the way.

Nikon d90, blinking "Error"


You "release the shutter" by pressing the shutter release button, often called the shutter button. That's the button you press to take a picture :-)

The camera may or may not return to normal after that. If it doesn't, remove the battery, then put it back in and turn the camera on again. Try removing and reattaching the lens (with the power off). If the problem persists, have a certified Nikon tech look at it.

How do I change the shutter speed?


This is "shutter lag," the delay between pressing the shutter release button and the camera actually taking a picture. This is a common situation with many compact cameras. The camera has to focus on the subject, meter the exposure, and switch the circuitry from displaying on the screen to recording the image and saving it in memory. More sophisticated (and expensive) DSLRs eliminate this shutter lag by having more dedicated hardware for this.

With a compact camera, you can reduce the shutter lag by anticipating the shot. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter the exposure. Continue to hold the shutter release button halfway until the right time, then press it the rest of the way.

Trying to figure out how to use the timer on my Nikon Coolpix S570


Press the self-timer button (left of OK).

Press up or down to choose either two second or ten second delay.

Frame the picture and press the shutter release halfway to set focus and exposure.

Press the shutter button the rest of the way. The self-timer starts, the remaining number of seconds shows on the display, and the self-timer lamp blinks.

After the picture is taken, the self-timer reverts to OFF.

To cancel the self-timer, press the shutter release button again.

Fuller details can be found in the manual under "Taking Pictures with the Self-timer."

My the shutter release button isn't working


I'll give you a couple: 1. Is your mode in shutter priority or focus priority? Check your menus and go into the AF area to see which one it is. If it's in focus priority you will have to be focused on a subject before the shutter releases. The other setting is 'release priority' which will enable you to snap the shutter regardless if you're focused or not. If you tried to re-compose the picture you were trying to take, you may have locked in focus and then when you re-composed it was not in the same area thus not releasing the shutter.
2. 2 button re-set.

No picture taken when shutter release is pressed


if you see no reation of the pressing of the button i.e. no focusing, no error message nothing , then most probably a simplest problem , the shutter release button may not be working for few reasons : 1) defective switch. 2) defective flex cable. 3) camera exposed to some physical jerk or dropping resulting into disalingment between inner switch and the shutter release button.
