All autofocus/autoexposure cameras will have some delay if the shutter is simply pressed fully before the focus and exposure are locked. The amount of time this takes has little to do with the camera and a lot to do with the conditions under which you are shooting. A camera may take much longer to lock focus in a low light situation than when there is a lot of light. Some cameras adjust focus continually and so there is a good chance that they will lock on faster than others but all cameras will have certain situations when they are puzzled and take a long time to complete the picture. The problem can be solved in a couple of ways. 1) You always hold down the shutter button half-way to allow the settings to lock before snapping the picture. It should be almost instantaneous after that. 2) If the camera allows a manual focus, you can pre-focus and eliminate that step in the process.

I have the S70 now.. and it's a long shutterlag, that is correct.. but i've taken photos all the day now and it's not a big problem, you get used to it right away.. I can recommend this camera very much! It's just fabulous! I had the Fuji MX-700 and Canon S10 before and this one is soo much better in all aspects.. And the manual focus, aperture/shutter controls are VERY easy to use.. but it's only a few preset focuses to choose from. The camera was bigger than i thought but the quality of most pictures i've taken are just amazing. One thing i miss from the Canon is the infra-red focus assist.. the night shots are very amazing! well.. ask whatever you want to know and i'll tell you ;-)

A cone cost 0.90 and sudaes cost 1.65. Tuesday they sold a total of 182 cones and sundaes the receipts for that day was 226.05. How many cones were sold

X = Cones
Y = Sundaes
X + Y = 182 --- Y = 182 - X
0.90 * X +1.65 * y = 226,05
0,90 * X + 1,65 ( 182 - X) = 226,05
0.90 * X + 1,65 * 182 - 1.65 X = 226.05
300.3 - 226,05 = 1,65 x - 0,9 x = 0,75 X
74,25 / 0,75 = X
X = 99
y = 83

From sitting so long your carb has gummed up and now must be removed and cleaned. Replace the plug with a new one, a fouled spark plug will not spark.

AC dosnt work

This is unfortunately a very expensive and laborious fix. The Evaporator behind the dash board is leaking on you, and you have to remove the entire dash and instrument panel to get to it.

This is a job best left to someone who has worked on your year, make, and model.

I would generally start at the dealership, and they may recommend someone who works on the 2000 Volvo S70 who works locally to that dealership but independently.

Hope this helps.

2000 volvo s70 cigarette lighter won't work

test the lighter socket itself by putting a everyday common voltage tester or "multi-meter"in it. place the positive wire on the tester to the center of the socket and the negative to the side of the socket. if no voltage reading, keep the positive where it is and move the negative probe on your tester to a new location that you "know" is a negative like a screw on the door jam area. ( find an unpainted surface"). if you get a reading now then you know the negative on the socket is not connected somewhere in the path. do the same with the positive..... good luck.

2000 volvo s70 cigarette lighter won't work

I don't own a volvo so no. Does the cd changer work ?

If not then that fuse needs to be replaced. as your dealer was kind enough to give you a hint (check the fuses on each side of the #30 fuse). and replace if necessary.

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
