I have had this camera for about a year and have never had the speed of the camera slow down except when it needs new batterys.
Well now even with brand new batterys in when you take a picture it takes it a good 10to 15 seconds before the camera will even snap the picture and then about another 15 seconds before its ready to shoot the next one> I cant figure this out does anyone have a suggestion or an answer.
Makes it kinda of hard to take a picture and capture the moment when you have to pray that no one moves until the camera is ready to move the shutter.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Wont speed up even with new batterys
The shutter button features a two-stage action.Pressing Halfway
Pressing halfway automatically sets the exposure, focus and white balance.
The indicators light or blink as follows. Upper Indicator
" Green: Metering complete (two beeps sound)
" Orange: Flash will fire
" Blinking Orange: Camera shake warning / Insufficient exposure Lower Indicator
" Yellow: Macro Mode / Manual Focus
" Blinking Yellow: Focusing difficulty* (single beep sounds)
* When the indicator blinks yellow, lock the focus before shooting.

1. Is your card very full of pics? More pics just slow down a card.2. Is your card a "cheap" slow-speed card? If so, it can't keep up. If your camera uses SD cards, get a class 6 or better.3. After downloading your pics to your computer, get in the habit of formatting the card in the camera to erase it and return it to original condition.
Are your batteries fully charged? Are the batteries 2 years old or older? Even with a full charge older batteries will not generate amperage to make the chair go as fast as when new. Also the motors tend to slow down with age due to brushes wearing down. Now, if the batteries are new and the motors are not that old then you need to find a wheelchair provider that has a PP1 programmer and have then check the settings for forward speed etc. If the speed is not set to 100 then they can increase the forward speed to 100%. Hope this helps you
1/30 is the camera speed setting which is very slow for a daylight shot.. and would possibly produce a blurry overexposed pic if it did take one F3.5 is the aperture setting which is small. an ideal aperture in daylight setting is F8 and a speed of 100 being relatively standard. Try changing both the speed and aperture settings on the wheel =to obtain the nearest or exactly this and then try. Otherwise it needs a service or a recharge Also try changing the battery in case there is something wriong with the one in the camera
Clean front and back + - terminals in camera careful with fine emery paper. Also, MAKE sure batteries are not loose if they are they will not make the connection. Fine jeweler screwdriver will pick them out enough.VERY CAREFUL.I truly think this is it.regards Billy
are a number of things that can cause the computer or the camera to freeze
up or slow down. First
I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer.
It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
this helps. Bud
I don't know, but it's worth a try. I took mine to the camera store, because my shutter wouldn't even work anymore, even with fresh batteries in it. He again tried new batteries, and turned the shutter speed knob from Automatic all the way over to "B" for Bulb, and back to the Auto. Guess What! I haven't used the camera in 3-5 years because I thought it was broke and going to need factory repair. Well, this tricked worked for me. I was so thrilled, because my daughter wanted some double exposures and special filters shots for her wedding. Also the weight of the camera I couldn't handle anymore with a health problem, so I went to digital, but would love a Nikon good digital.
