220HS trigger happy problem
Sep 14, 2012

I was taking a picture in Auto. The flash was needed as the subject was a bit dark.

I pressed the trigger and the red light appeared on the subject for a rather long time so i kept on pressing.

The camera then took five flash shots by itself rapid fire without my finger on the button.

A virus i thought he heehe. I removed the battery and refitted again. Like some cell phones it like a reboot. Do you think i must restore factory settings.

All seems ok now, but would this be a fault with the camera or just a phenomenon i must live with.

This is the best little camera i have had, very happy with the pictures it takes, but i cant have it dictating the odds here. I am the boss.
