Re: Very bad shutter delay

Thanks for all the replies. It is comforting to know that I am not the only 'idiot' out there.

If I implement that idea I may have less issues in the future...
TBH, 98% of the time my cameras are always setup the same, RAW, 100ISO and aperture priority.

I so rarely change settings it may be easier for me to remember to change them back.

Re: Very bad shutter delay

This has reminded me I have left my E 510 in remote trigger mode, what's the betting I forget before it's next used (it plays second fiddle to an E 1).

Re: Very bad shutter delay

and another one to add to the list, when I wondered why my E510 was struggling so much to focus in low light... I'd left the polarising filter on it!
