Good day & Happy New Year to all,

Life is good and I am living large and really enjoying the switch from Nikon to Canon but with anything, there is always a learning curve and I think I am doing a good job in dealing with it but per usual there are a few small things that are driving me crazy such as when my 20D goes into deep hibernation it seems to take 5 to 10 seconds to fully wake up and I wind up missing a shot because of it.

Is there an option, possibly in the Custom Functions (no, I haven't sorted through all of those yet) that will allieviate this source of frustration for me? I like the fact that the camera powers down to conserve battery life but perhaps it shouldn't power down as deeply or take 10 seconds to wake up from its nap. There has to be a happy medium and I just need to find it so any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks all.

The only thing I've found on my 20d is under the "menu" button. There is a selection to adjust the amount of time before going into sleep mode. I think the default is 2 mins and I was always having to wake it up during certain shoots and it also caused me to miss important shots. I changed the time to something like 10 mins. I rarely go that long without taking a shot during things like weddings but, if I do lay it down it will still save the battery. Hope this helps.

I've been using the 20D for over a year. It is basically an instant on camera and almost instantly returns from "hibernation". If your camera is having the problem you report, then there is something wrong with the camera. Two things to check, however. First make sure that the battery is not at the very end of its charge (so test with a fresh battery). Be sure there is no problem with the CF card. The CF card is read by the camera as it comes back from hibernation. A problem with the card, could delay the return. So check with a card other than the one you normally use. If you have more than one card, check each.

Cheers,
rfs

Sounds like a problem with the camera. I have 2 20D's and they are both instant on.
