I was looking at a review from PCmag and they said that the recycle time for the flash is slow on the S2. I haven't seen this comment on any other review and just wondering if it's true.

Can somebody confirm? Does it hurt performance when taking shots in a room where flash is needed?

Thanks,

A

It is possible to shoot one photo after the other.

Hardly any noticeable delay. Can compare it too my previous Olimpus and this one is much quicker...

I haven't tested this yet but my guess would be that the flash would recycle faster with rechagable batteries than alkaline (my extrnal flash always did).

I too haven't noticed the recycle time to be an issue.

It all depends on the strength of the flash (which is user adjustable, or auto). Needless to say that the strongest flash has the strongest cycle time, and it can be quite long. 5secs at least.
