Very slow After I take a picture it takes a very long time until I can take another one. The viewfinder lamp swithces slowly from green to orange and the camera is not responding to anything until the lamp stays green. It takes even longer if i used the flash. Anyway I can fix it? I opened the camera and I noticed there is a battery (like a watch battery). Can that be replaced? Anybody knows anything about this battery? Thank you in advance for any feedback.

I bought this camera on ebay for my daughter- it seemed like a good idea at the time. I have the same model (bought new) & have no problems.
