It just occured to me - are you using the red eye reduction? This feature deliberately increases the shutter delay to give the eye pupils time to contract. Turn it off and your flash will be going off almost instantly.

A quick update. After two phonecalls to Pixmania about the manual and CD for the A60 they still haven't sent it out despite them promising.

Also the A60 is being sold on Amazon for 129.99 (as of a couple of days ago when they sent me a nice email about it) so another reason to avoid shopping at PixMania.

I purchased my A60 from TigerDirect.ca and everything was fine.

However, after viewing your post about Steve's review and the .6 second interval between the shot and the shutter....
I've been experiencing the same thing.

Just wondering if anyone can help us out?
I seem to take about 3 seconds also.

Turn off the red eye reduction, don't use telephoto and macro, and you'll get the delay about 1 sec.
