When half press the shutter button, the camera immedietly snaps a picture, it does not focus on the object or get the correct exposure.

Yeah,why did you half press the shutter?When you take a photo,you should press the shutter with force quickly.I think you didn't set your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Camera at a proper mode for the scene,shot with a correct the next time.Wish helpful to you.

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.

Slow sutter speed/Lag in taking a picture

Use full auto mode or take out of Aperature priority, you may be shooting with a very small aperature setting and not know it. Also shutter priority can be set to a slow shutter speed.

Canon G3 irresponsive Shutter & non-see through viewfinder

optical view finder. this seams odd as it is only a lens. Was the camera dropped at some point? that may explain both issues. if not then I need to know a little more prior to offering an opinion.

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

Card speed won't interfere with shutter lag. The lag is much less (near non-existent) if you pre-focus. Or use manual focus with small enough aperture to get lots of depth of field. Make sure your kids are in the focus zone and just snap away.

Shutter lag

I don't know what your measurement conditions were, but there's no way the shutter lag after focus is 1/2 second. I don't have a quantitative number at my finger tips, but it surely falls into the "instantaneous" category, as far as I can tell. I've taken plenty of action shots and candids, including shots of flying birds, that will back that up

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.
