I just bought a 712. When I take a picture, without flash, the LCD (and EVD) freeezes
and just holds the picture taken for between 4 and 5 seconds before it will let me use the LCD or EVD to get the next shot. All the while the Storage arrow is blinking which I assume shows its storing the image. This is terrible. I want to be able to take a shot and certainly in less than 2 seconds take the next one. Am I doing something wrong or do I need a new camera (I can return this one within 30 days).

That delay is to allow you to review the photo you've just taken. The function is called Quickview which is on by default.You should be able to go into the setup menu and turn the function off. I did so after my first outdoor testing session with my Z612. The information is in the Z612 manual but I couldn't find it in the P712 manual however Steve's review of P712 menu functions shows it.

Thank you. That worked great. You just saved me a lot. I liked the camera and all of the features. It was just the potential slowness that was killing me. Thanks for the fast response.
