My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

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.

My Panasonic Lumix DMS-ZS3 has auto face recognition on and I usually use it with the intelligent auto setting and all other defaults. Is this why it takes so long to take a pic (long enough for the subject's smile to fade!) and to recover afterwards so I can take another?
