Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera ?

When i depress the button to take a picture there is a significant amount of time that passes before the picture actual is taken. 9 out of 10 times the "moment" is gone

Picture error I have a problem with my Olympus SP 500UZ. When I take a couple of pictures on one day. Shut the camera down and start it later on to take new pictures.
