My Nikon 775 has that half seconed delay aswell, you must hold it still or have an tripod to set it on. Plus to take even better pictures you must set the exposer time even longer like a second or 2, which you would really need a tripod big time.<br><br>The sub second delay comes with all digital cameras.<br><br>
You can't get anymore "international" than posting a pic of your butt on the internet! I win!!! <br><br>Back to topic; I wonder how many unintentionally bad photos are taken because of this lag issue? And what a horrible thorn in the side of your creativity! I guess good candid photography is out of the question with low to midrange digitals. Shame.<br><br>[color:red]Alec</font color=red>
Yup. Great for still lifes and sleeping pets. But try to catch the kiddo's first somersault? Fuhgeddaboutit. I have an Epson 1.2 mp camera that I bought about 4 or 5 years ago, and you can read 2 chapters of War and Peace during the lag between shutter button depression and image capture. I bought my wife a 775 a few months back, and was annoyed to find the same performance.<br><br>'Course my wife's one of those "get-flustered-and-can't-find-the-right-button" types anyway, so for her, it almost doesn't matter. <br><br>
Right steveg.<br><br>The 775 and I would guess as in any digital camera under the 600 range they do have some limitations. The 775 is a 2.5 mega pixel<br><br>My 775 in landscape mode is really bad on auto mode. Now take Afterglow he has taken great shots of sunsets and landscapes but with a tripod and a much slower speed setting.<br><br>I maybe wrong but it seems to get the good action shots without the blurring you might need to get a much higher Mega Pixel Camera like a 5.0 or better.<br><br>Like you said anything less then 3.5 is really only good for stills.<br><br>
well, i have a 4.1 megapixel camera (sony s95 or something like that) and it takes okay action shots, but the delay still exists. if i had known that the delay existed, i may have factored that into my purchasing decision. i hate it...hate it! hate it! hate it! i don't know how many photos have been messed up because i see my kids doing something and grab the camera and click the button and it takes 1/2 second after they stop. take the photo on the click for gosh sakes. that's my biggest concern in my next purchase of a digital camera as long as i have kids. i could go on and on how annoying it is. then again, getting film developed and then scanned in is more of a hassle. i just can't win...at least on my budget. ;-)<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
That is right sean. When I take pictures people see me in slow motion LOL I mean that I take the shot the action goes by they look back I still have the camera up covering my face.<br><br>I was hopeing that a 5.0 and better would have greater action shots. I guess not, they still have a delay no matter what the mega pixel is.<br><br>
