Question

Shorter time between shots?

Hello, it seems like it takes the camera about 4 seconds after shooting a picture before it is ready to take another picture. When trying to shoot moving objects, this can be very troublesome, and lead to missed shots. This camera is replacing a 7 year old camera that seems to perform better in this regard. Is it possible that one of the menu settings is causing this to take longer? Also, there seems to be a long lag between pushing the shutter release and the shutter actually releasing. I'm not referring to pressing halfway to autofocus, but simply pressing the button completely, all at once. Again, when I'm photographing changing scenes, such as small children at play, the picture I end up getting is often different than the one I see when I press the button. Is there any way to get a more instantaneous response from the shutter? PS: My camera is actually an S9200.

Thank you for the advice. I'd like to get the fastest card possible, does the S9200 support UHS1 speeds, or would I just be wasting my money and be better off with a Class 10?

It will shoot 6+ frames per in continuous high mode. Get a good SDHC memory card either a class 10 or UHS1 write speed. You can also reduce the resolution to 8 mp and unless your planning a larger than 8x10 you won't notice the difference. The reduced file size will clear the buffer faster.

All Nikon Coolpix cameras have an auto switching (from 100v to 240V 50hz/60hz)battery charger that will work in most countries around the world. However, you will need to purchase a new power cord for the charger in the UAE because the standard power cord that is included with the charger is rated for 110V power suppply only.

Question

How do I get the Set Up menu to pop up?

I need to set the time zone and date on this camera as the indicator is flashing red all the time which is annoying but also want to set the Welcome screen, Language, Vibration reduction...etc. but general camera Set up menu (not the individual shooting menus) is impossible to find!! The camera has been switched on and off million times so it doesn't pop up automatically after the camera is turned on first time as the manual says. Manual on CD is not clear on this one either. Thanks.

Question

How does the S9300's hidden flash pop up and retract?

The S9100 has a release switch on the side that manually pops up the hidden flash. When it's no longer needed, the flash can be retracted manually by pushing it back down into the camera. The S8200 also has a hidden flash, but it pops up automatically when needed. It can only be retracted by turning off the camera and not by pushing it back down manually. Which method is used by the S9300?
