One thing I hear a lot about complaints with small cameras is shutter lag. In other words, you press the button down to take the picture and the picture doesn’t take right away. What causes that? Well typically it’s caused by the auto focus. The camera is trying to focus on the shot and before will make you take the picture coz the camera is trying to be smart and not let take an out of focus picture which is a great idea. Unfortunately, that may delay your shot. So there are a couple of ways you’ll get around that. First of all, if you press down the shutter partially, the camera will automatically focus. It won't take the picture but will focus. Then when you see the shot you like and they actually want, just press it all the way down. At that point, it will take the picture without having to go through the focus function. That’s a really great way to avoid shutter lag. Another problem with shutter lag is caused when you’re trying to use a flash and it has the red eye reduction feature on. The red eye reduction feature sometimes pre-flashes the flash, so the eyes of the person you’re shooting dilates so that they don’t have the red eye look and then it takes the picture afterwards. Obviously, that’s a delayed reaction. So one way to avoid that is to turn off the red eye reduction feature and then fix it later in the Photoshop or some photo program that comes with your computer or even the standard Windows or Macintosh photo programs, all have that feature. So, couple of ways you can avoid shutter lag, press down the shutter slightly, get it in focus then press it down. It will be much faster. Another thing is turn off red eye. Hope this was helpful.
