I love my digital cameras.  Sure, I was raised on film and went kicking and screaming into digital like a lot of avid photography hobbyists, but now I’m hooked and would hate to ever go back.

That being said, there is one thing that really bugs me about digital cameras, namely that they often suffer from camera lag.

Camera lag is the delay you get between pressing down the shutter button to take the picture, and the camera actually taking the picture. The problem arises when you need to take something quickly, and the delay (or lag) is just long enough that you miss the picture.

For example, as I take pictures of my son Jack playing baseball (which he’s constantly doing), as I press the shutter and try to get him just at the instant he picks up a ground ball, the lag time to when the picture is actually taken causes me to completely miss the moment.

BUT…  there is somewhat of a solution. It’s on your camera and it’s called Exposure or Focus Lock.

In this short video, I’ll explain what it is and how you can use it to fix the camera lag problem.
