I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark. My flash card is a CompactFlash 4GB Hi-speed 40 so I dont understand why it take so long for the flash to go off between shots.

Make sure you have your flash & timing set where it is supposed to be, usually between 120 & 180. This is the shutter timing and flash duration. It is the syncronizing speed setting. If possible, turn off the automatic review, this slows ... Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

What are the normal settings for night shots on oly C3030Z. Shall I use flash when I shot on nights? If I set the aperture on F2.8 and the shutter from 2 to 16 sec. I got a lot of pixels on the picture. I found out that if I have the shutter open for a very long time there are many pixels on the shot. I hope you can tell me,about the settings for night shots.

I PURCHASED A KODAK DIGITAL z1085lS I took 6 shots in 24 hrs and battery was dead. The batterys are to expensive to be replacing so often,so I purchased good quality rechargable batteries but after 4 or five shots their dead also. Is therer an electrical problem with these camers or is this normal. Some times I can hear a motor turning in the camera long after it has been turned of. Hope you can help thanks chris


This is not normal. Good batteries should give you over 100 pics before things start to slow down. If you bought the camera new you need to contact the warranty/repair folks at www.kodak.com and have them either repair or replace the camera. If yo ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

I have an Olympus 8.0 megapixel. Recently as I shoot pictures or videos I notice that if there are lights in the shot, especially brighter ones, the lights refract and make long light trails in the shots, it almost looks like some kind of special effect lens is being used. Is there some setting that I may have changed that has caused this? How do I fix it?

How do I set the camera so I don't have a delay, I try to take a picture and there seems to be a delay and I miss the shot.


This is a common situation with almost all point-and-shoot cameras. The delay is because the camera has to do so much when you push the button. Bulkier and more expensive SLRs eliminate the delay by having more hardware to handle the various tasks. ... Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS Digital Camera

"Stuck" Pixel Hello folks I bought a used S2 from a friend and recently started noticing this green hot pixel that shows up at the same location in most of the shots. These are not long exposures. They're available light shots inside my house, so they average 1/45 @ f4 ISO 400. I'm starting with digital and this really sucks, because it is showing up in most pictures. These are snapshots of my family and I don't want to have to fix each of them in post production. I would like to hear from membe

I have a Canon zoom lens EF-5 18-55mm for my Canon EOS 450D. I am having trouble with my AF. If I set it on AF it will not focus automatically, but if I manually turn the lens for a close up it will then take the picture. Then and only then will the AF for long distance shot come into operation! After taking that shot it reverts back to not focussing. What can I do, if anything, to rectify this malfunction? Cheers Geraint Evans


Is this a problem with this lens only ? Try this lens on a friend's XSI/450D or try another lens on your camera body. Try all 3 AF modes. ... Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera

Missing shots I have a Coolpix L18/L16 Nikon and I am missing all of my pictures. I take them but by the time the shot goes through the picture is lost. It continually results in pictures where my daughter's eyes are closed. What can I do? I am guessing that some setting is off which makes it take too long to snap the photo.


Your camera works fine, but they made it like this, so you should push the button all the way down, not half way, because when you push half way, the camera focus on the target, and the little lasers flash, but that is no shoot... on the other hand, ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

Cyber-shot T2 Hello This is probably a long shot but I have had my Sony cybershot T2 for about 1 month now and about 2 weeks ago it just died on me and it won't turn on. I didn't drop it, there is a not a single scratch on it, i have charged the battery 2 full but it just wont turn on. At the beginning it would flash as if it was turning on and then stop. Now it won't even do that. I don't know what to do as I loved that camera and it's very new. It worked perfectly before. If you could help me
