Having problems with your Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera ?

When i takea picture with my S2pro it takes anything from 25 to 45 seconds to transfer the image onto my 2gb card. why does it take so long?


Answers :

If the card is getting close to filled, it may slow down. There may also be a problem with the card that is causing read and write errors that will slow down transfers. If the card is old or an inexpensive newer one - which are often slower - it will affect transfer speeds. Look for a "Class" number on the card. The higher the class number is, the faster the transfers - both reading and writing. A Class 6 card is 6 times faster than the baseline card. The same numbering for class applies across the board - Class 2 is is only 2 times faster than the baseline card... A Class 6 card is 2.5 times faster than the Class 2 card. You should be seeing how this works.

Some pro cards boast multiples of 20 x or more speed. You will pay a great deal more for these cards than a poky Class 2 card. The larger number of pixels in modern DigiCams produce images in the megabyte size range and can take some time to be reliably transferred from the cache memory of the camera to the memory card.

25 - 45 seconds seems to be an extra long time though. I suspect an issue with the card itself. Try using a different card - preferably a faster class type and see if the problem goes away.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

LCD/Recording Picture When I take a picture, the camera will only record about 1/4 of the picture on the LCD screen, then rest of the image is black.
