In Auto modes, your cam. needs time to autofocus and assess the scene for exposure. If you just press the shutter, it must work this out before capturing the scene. In manual modes where you specify settings, the cam electronics do less work so lag is less.

However, if you half press the shutter just before the shot, it gets the info it needs, then pressing the shutter the rest of the way takes the shot quickly. But you must make sure the camera to subject distance has not changed, or exposure hasn't changed since half pressing the shutter.

The delay afterwards, is in processing the image to the card. If you shoot max. res., this delay before taking another shot, will be longest. Don't forget flash has to re-charge after shooting, so taking flash shots at long distance (more flash energy) will slow the recovery time, before you can take the next pic.

Default Fuji 3800

Thanks for the excellent info on shooting action stills with the 3800 in auto and manual modes. This will really help.
