The time a digital camera takes to capture a photo once you press the shutter button is longer than a typical film camera because it needs to focus and set the exposure. Many new digital camera users get frustrated because they miss the photo when the ideal moment passes by. You can avoid this by pre-focusing your camera: aim at your subject matter and hold the shutter button down halfway. Then, at the right moment, fully press the button and you’ll have a better chance of capturing the picture you want. The shutter delay can also cause blurry photos when the photographer moves the camera right after depressing the shutter button. Hold the camera steady for a few seconds after taking any photo to assure a steady camera and a sharper photo.
