Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A40 Digital Camera ?

How to stop delay.

\015 I take pics of dogs in shelter and when I press to shot, it has a second or more delay. By that time the dog has moved and the shot is lost. What am I doing wrong? Can I set something that will immediately take pic with hesitation?\015

Answers :

It sound like your ISO speed is set too low. I would bet you're taking pictures inside a building with few or not ambient light. Try changing the ISO to 400 or 800. You might also consider using the flash.

I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.

I have purchased a vivatar 870 hd camcorder. After recording, on the play back, when watching it on the camcorder, there is a sound delay. What would cause this delay? And will I get this delay when hooking up to the computer as well?

Just purchased a canon A590. on page 84 of user guide, continuous shooting is described. I'm somewhat familiar with SD cards, but Canon implies that I have to use their MSH type SD card to use the continuous shooting feature. When I look at the drive modes in my camera, I only see 4 possible modes....single pic, 10 sec delay, 2 second delay, and delay continuous. There is an icon for continuous shooting in the book, but it does not appear on my camera. Why?

I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames p ... Canon Digital Cameras

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

Crash I greatly enjoyed the D70 until it suddenly stopped taking pictures. I got the dreaded ERR message. WE tried different batteries, lenses, cards, etc., but to no avail. This is a real bummer. I have used Nikons for 30 years. Currently, my F100 is also at Nikon. The back latch catches simply cracked and fell off! Plastic.A couple of years ago, the self-timer stopped working and Nikon had to replace the software circuits. (The warranty had run out.)

The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Che ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-50mm Lens
