Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

Firing "lag time" response

\015 I have used my 40D for a year... Yesterday when I tried to take a photo, it took about half a second to fire, I have already formatted the memory card, I have cleared all Camera Setting..., I have tried in different autofocus modes, inclusive in manual, and still is "taking time" to fire.Thanks a lot\015

Shutter Lag-Time The shutter lag-time on this camera seems quite long to me. I have read the manual that came with the book as well as a "short course" book on the G6 and this isn't really mentioned. I am wondering if this is a problem unique to my camera or if others have noticed this. In "AUTO" mode it is the worst. Am I missing something, or is this just the way the camera operates?


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 prosu ... Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D90 with 18-105 mm lens. Lately, the onboard flash has not been firing even when I try to enforce it by having the flash popped up. It will only fire if I do one of the following: 1) unmount the lens from the camera body and then re-mount it back on, which the flash will fire maybe once or twice and that's it!, or 2) switch on a different lens which definitely works with the flash firing every single time.

Canon SD900 selection options not responsive. The selector wheel, Function Set button and menu selector only work from time to time.

The flash on my Kodak V570 does not appear to be working. There are 4 settings and I put the setting on the flash so that it fires every time you take a picture, regardless of the lighting conditions.
