Previous questions about this product

  • Can I take a still shot on this without the huge delay?

    The delay is at least a full second, maybe longer to take a photo. By that time my subject is gone. Can I speed this up? Otherwise it it completely useless as a still camera. And even when I do take the shot it is blurry. My little 159$ Canon takes shots far superior to this. I got it as a gift so cannot return it so hope there is a setting I am missing to be able to use it as a camera as well.
