Action Photography Frustration

by rsmg / February 16, 2004 12:42 AM PST

Are there any digital cams, (affordable), that can snap an action picture promptly when the button is pushed?? Yes, I know about the multiple sequence photography but, short of that, I haven't seen or heard of a cam that can snap a pic in less than a second after the button is pushed!

If you want to just press down the button and get a photo, you will get a delay of one second or more.

If you prefocus by pressing the button down halfway and then snap the photo, many cameras can do that in about 0.1 second. This is considered fast in the digital world.

Two possible solutions:

Use a 35mm film camera.

Use a digital camcorder that lets you select individual frames to create still pictures.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
