Hi guys, I got my cam last week and i have been playing with the manual mode I noticed a big delay with build in flash!
when I'm in manual and with open flash after i focus in and than press the shoot button all the way the little AF lamp turns on and the picture is taken like with 1 sec delay!!!!!

On the other hand when I'm in the auto mode and with flash since there is not enough light, there is no delay what so ever!

Can anyone help me here; is there a setting somewhere or is this cam that slow! but if thats the case than the auto should also be slow.

Thanks for all your help guys!!!

your manual setting could be set to REAR SYNC.
Change the setting for the flash - you have several options:
Front-curtain sync
Red eye reduction
Slow sync and
Rear curtain sync
If your settings are on Rear - this is what causes the delay - change to Front or red eye.
Depends on the effect you want to achieve with the flash.

The delay is caused by the Red-eye reduction function. Rear-curtain sync only delays the flash, not the exposure altogether.

Red eye reduction is more than 1 flash, pre-flash to reduce the pupil of the subject and a picture flash to expose the sensor. This should be visible as not being delay but just the fact that it does more than 1 flash for 1 exposure. But I am curious what setting was used exactly that caused the delay, as I am willing to take back my comment if he experienced it as delay.

The said AF assist light could actually be the pre-flash (although it should be a different light on the body)

Here is a link to a book - it's not the perfect one, but it helps explaining some features in details.
Also has a kindle version.
Hope it will help you.
