Thread: Slow recharge of flash for Canon PS A700

  1. #1

    Default Slow recharge of flash for Canon PS A700

    Using 2 X 2100mah Sanyo batt with this camera. Like all the features of this camera, esp. the 6 X optical zoom. Only disappointment is with the time required to charge the flash.

    Whenever a shot with flash is taken, the flash needs abt 5 sec to charge... This is esp the case when a long zoom is used, perhaps a more powerful flash is needed.

    Does any guys here face the same problem??

    Would using 2500mah batt help??

    One more thing, how many shots can ur camera last with 2 X 2100mah batt? I estimate mine is only abt 150 shots... seems a bit low to me.

    Thanks in advance!

    try canon thread?

    anyway... i have tried out a710is with a set of 2500mAh batteries. Shot to shot can take up to 5 secs to charge... i noticed this is the characteristics of this camera.

    I don't have this model but from what I read from reviews, this A700 is known for slow flash recharge times (abt 5secs, like you experienced) so probably there's not much you can do about it.
