    thanks for the answer!

    I just found out today that if i lift the view finder to its greatest angle the photo button works (very weird) but its working so I'll hold onto my $130 a bit longer and maybe put it towards a new cam in the future.

This is a service issue involving the replacement of the zoom operation assembly which contains several buttons and functions manufactured with a preformed flexible printed board all connected together. Canon fixes this for about $130.00 total. You can find service info at www.canonusa.com. Good luck, magic seadog

How to improve picture quality of Digital Camera

Slow down the shutter speed of your digital camera. Whenever you must take a photo in a low light environment decrease your shutter speed. It is virtually impossible to take a blurry digital photo with a an extremely slow shutter speed. Even if your digital camera has an automatic or semi-automatic mode, slowing down the shutter speed will still produce a better digital photo. <br /> Wait until your digital camera is completely focused. Most digital cameras will notify you that they are focus ready by a blinking light, on screen indicator or a noise. Confirm that your digital camera has locked onto your desired target before pressing the shutter release button. Some digital cameras may have trouble focusing on subjects easily. If this happens use an auto focus mode to produce a better digital photo. <br /> Prevent your digital camera from shaking. Shaky hands or sudden movement will definitely produce a blurry digital photo. When holding your digital camera, make sure the viewfinder is firmly pressed against your face before snapping a digital photo. If you do not have image stabilization on your digital camera, then think about investing in a tripod. This will allow you to steady your digital camera for the perfect shot. <br /> Make sure the digital image is definitely a blurry one and not just a soft image. On many occasions soft images are mistaken for blurry ones. Soft images occur often with digital cameras. When printing these images, the softness rarely shows through. You will be able to easily edit these photos by sharpening the details for a better printing experience. <br /> Take your time. Instead of rushing to take a digital photo, set aside enough time to shoot your image. Hurrying up will not produce an excellent digital photo. You don't need to be overwhelmingly slow when taking the photo, but try your best not to take a hasty one.

I want to take instant photos instead of having to wait a second for the camera to take a photo after pressing the button. any ideas???

The technique goes like this....press the shutter button half-way and allow the focus to lock (it will beep) then when the moment is right, press the rest of the way.

Photos are fuzzy. At the time it takes 52 picts. a round. Would they be sharper if I reduce the picts?

Hello MaryRoth,
Photos are fuzzy due to many reasons and the main two reasons are that the subject is out of focus or the subject or the hand shake during the time of taking the snap.
Please make sure that you select appropriate picture modes (Macro, Portrait, Landscape etc..) when taking snaps. Make sure that when you press the click button half-a-way (known as AE mode), the subject is still in focus.
Try using a Tripod stand in case the hand is not steady or try increasing the shutter speed if its an SLR camera. That should help.

Let me know if that works.

Regards,
Srinivas

Missing shots

your camera works fine, but they made it like this, so you should push the button all the way down, not half way, because when you push half way, the camera focus on the target, and the little lasers flash, but that is no shoot... on the other hand, if you push half way the button, the camera focus on the target, then you push it more, then you shoot the picture and it is saved. Try to be more careful about what means all way down and half way down.
Hope it was helpful

Hand signal coming up when trying to take picture

The hand icon means you don't have enough light to take a hand-held photo. You need to either increase the light (take the photo in brighter light, such as outdoors in the sun), use flash, or a tripod.

Some cameras have a mode that will let you shoot anyway, but most people are not happy with the blurry photos they get when shooting when the camera warned them with the hand icon so you are better off not using that over-ride mode.

Sony Cyber-shot Digicams

The Sony P72 should produce excellent photos. You stated that you had just purchased the camera which may be a clue to the problem. With a film camera, you push the shutter button and bang you have a picture. With a digital camera you push the shutter button and about 1.5 seconds later the focus locks and then 0.2 seconds still later the picture is captured. Since you are not accustomed to that shutter delay, you are probably moving the camera. Most digital cameras will let you push the shutter button down half-way to achieve focus lock. Then press the button the rest of the way down to take the photo (remembering there is a 0.2 second delay). When you plan to snap that picture, be prepared to be perfectly still for 3 to 4 seconds. Try taking some pictures with your camera sitting on something solid (or a tripod) and see if the photo quality doesn't improve. There is a good 9 page review of the P72 camera at: http://www.steves-digicams.com/2003_reviews/p72.html One of the pages contains sample photos. Select one of the photos and click on it. When the photo finishes loading (large file), then RIGHT click on the photo and click "Save photo as". Save it to your hard drive. Print that photo on your printer. That will give you the chance to see how a known good photo, will print on your printer.
