Help with Cannon powershot A85 and Fuji Finepix S5700


Standard Member
Hello Newbie here,

I have the above two cameras which I like to take to gigs with me (not both at the same time!) The Cannon is quite old but it serves me well and I take it if the gigs gonna be rough. I wonder if any of you could tell me step by step, what settings to have the cameras on. I find at the mo that the time delay between pressing the button and the camera taking the picture, means the moment has been missed. If I use the flash it reflects off the dry ice and it I don't there is camera shake.

All around me I will see people taking good shots in an instant with no flash, where as mine are a bit of both. Some will be ok but others rubbish. Does anyone have any tips on what I can do to improve? To speed up the camera, particularly the Cannon, and to stop dry ice reflection?

Thanx from a newbie.
