Default Next shot delay

I'm using the Canon S330 digital camera.

I'm having great fun with the camera, but, the only
problem I"m having is with the "next shot delay"....

In between taking shots it takes about 10 to 15 seconds before I
can take the next picture.

And, the battery is always freshly charged, and I still have this agita.

I also thought it might be the memory card, but I've just been informed by one of the members that its the camera, and not the memory card that is the problem.

My compact flash cards are Sandisk 128 mb and 512 mb.
If this is an inherent problem with my camera, I'd just as soon as purchase one that allows me more rapid shot ability.

Any recommendations for any such "rapid fire" digital camera?
I do prefer the "compact" type camera.

Are you shooting these pictures with the flash on?

If so, then your experience is typical. The flash needs to recharge and it takes several seconds to do so between shots.

If you are taking them without flash, then something is wrong with your camera. According to the reviews you should be able to take up to 2.5 frames (shots) per second.

I must agree with Selvin. It could be the flash.

It also could be the speed of the memory though. I know different memory cards have different read/write speeds. The memory usually is not the problem though.

Good luck with your problem.
