After the focus is confirmed, the Shutter-release time lag for the DiMAGE E201 is approximately 0.4 second. If the shutter-release button is depressed in a quick motion without making any pause to confirm focus, approximately 1.9 second is necessary.

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.

There is a delay between the time I press the button to take the picture, and when the picture actually is snoapped. Can I make this delay a shorter time?

This is a common situation with many compact point&shoot cameras. The camera has to do a lot of work between the time you press the shutter release button and it takes the picture; set the focus, meter the light and set the exposure, switch from showing the real-time image on the LCD to capturing and storing a single image, and more. Larger, heavier, and more expensive DSLRs have additional hardware to reduce this "shutter lag" to nothing, compact cameras don't.

There is something you can do to reduce the time, however. If you know where the action is going to happen (a kid getting ready to blow out the candles on a cake, for example), press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter. Hold the button there until the action happens, then press it the rest of the way. This lets the camera get most of the work done before taking the picture.

From the time i hit button and the time the picture actually takes is way to long i miss the pic how can i fix this

This "shutter lag" is a common situation with most compact point&shoot cameras. The camera has to do a lot of work when you press the button, including acquiring focus, metering the exposure, and switching the circuitry from displaying on the screen to recording to memory. More sophisticated (and more expensive) cameras have more hardware to reduce this lag.

You can reduce the shutter lag by anticipating the action. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter. Keep it pressed halfway until the right moment and then press it the rest of the way.

IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO TAKE A PHOTO FROM WHEN YOU PRESS THE BUTTON

This is a common situation with many compact point&shoot cameras. Larger and more expensive dSLRs have additional hardware that eliminates this "shutter lag".

You can eliminate much of the lag by anticipating the peak of the action. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter, and hold it there until the moment, then press the shutter release button the rest of the way.

Can the lag time be changed/ i miss the whole shot waiting for the camera to actually take the photo

One of the biggest disadvantages of compact cameras is that they take longer to acquire focus, meter and evaluate the light, and set appropriately. Larger, more sophisticated (and more expensive) cameras have faster processors that effectively eliminate this lag time.

There are things you can do to reduce, but not completely eliminate, the lag time of your camera. The most important is to anticipate the action. Follow the action with the camera and press the shutter release button halfway. This forces the camera to focus, meter, and do most of the other things that need to be done before taking the picture. Then press the shutter release button the rest of the way at the critical moment to take the picture.

There is too much delay when I try to take a picture.

This is a common situation with most compact point&shoot cameras. The camera has to do a lot of work when you press the shutter release button: it must focus on the subject, meter the light for proper exposure, and switch the electronics from displaying on the LCD to recording the image to memory. Larger (and more expensive) cameras have additional hardware to deal with most of this, eliminating the "shutter lag."

You can reduce the lag by pressing the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter the exposure. Keep the button halfway down until the right moment and then press it the rest of the way down.

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.

Time lag between focusing and shooting causes missed phot ops

First of all, all point and shoot cameras suffer from "shutter lag". You can Google that for more info. To minimize it, press the shutter button half-way and lock in the focus. Then, press the rest of the way when the time is right. Your camera will be about 0.5 to 0.8 seconds behind the actual press of the button.

Shutter Lag-Time

The G5 has a rather short shutter lag and a rather lengthy focus lag. So if you half depress the shutter release to focus, and then moments later fully depress the shutter release I expect you will find very little lag. But I would not expect a prosumer model to focus fast. hope this helps,

Shutter Lag

Thats going to be a problem with most digital cameras in that price range (and even some $$ ones) really the only thing I can recommend is PF.F.S. That would be Pre-Focus -- Frame -- Shot. Many people try to frame a photo up then focus/shot all in one, but this does not always work. So if your looking to speed things up a little, just half press the button to get a prefocus and then do your magic. Really everything I talked about above was Focus-lag, not actually shutter lag. But since this is often confussed I thought I would add it in.
