Shutter lag is the time difference between when you press the shutter button, and when the shot is actually taken. There are many reasons behind the shutter delay time. There are technical issues that cause a shutter lag as well as manual mistakes because of which there is a shutter delay. There are ways to solve shutter lag to an extent, but completely eliminating is almost impossible. If we take the technical aspects of a shutter-lag, there are two main processes that cause it. Following we have listed both the processes that cause shutter lag.
2. Time for the Shutter Release. The time that your camera takes to open the camera shutter ( It is either a physical or an electronic shutter) and the time that it takes to prepare its sensors for the shot. This time when combined with the processing time, focusing time etc. results in shutter lag. The time you camera takes to focus on a subject is the longest amongst all.
Shutter lag time also varies from camera to camera. The more expensive and advance your camera is, less shutter lag delay there will be. It is more prominent in inexpensive cameras. The general rule of thumb to reduce shutter lag is that you should never shoot in full Auto mode. Instead, switch to a mode that lets you pre-set functions.diminish.
