3. Eliminating the Shutter Lag:

I love taking photos and I have interfaced with this problem a lot, when I try to take a photo of my friends and the camera wont take a single shot. So what you have to do here is refocus the photo either by tapping the screen in most Android Smartphone or a half-click the shutter button and then take the photo again.

Press ‘B‘ to black out the slides during a presentation and pressing B again brings back the slide. The same goes for ‘W’ to white out the slide and W again to bring it back up top.
