My Kx takes about 3 to 4 seconds to process a good light jpeg photo.The speed/class of the card makes no difference at all. So I would say it is normal, though my Km is faster.

so why are point and shoots so quick.. they are pretty much instant in reading it to the card and showing it on the lcd??? When i mentioned this to the camera store they thought it was a bit slow too, so not sure what's up? I am bringing it back tomorrow and the card too and see what they say. I'll test it out on a different camera too and see what it's like. I mean if it's this slow you will miss so many great photo's... if it's typical for this camera then i guess i will have to live with it.....

yes and know, some take a bit longer time then others. I seen some point and shoot that take about 4-5 second to write it to the sdhc.

Your pentax has a larger buffer, so you can take a bunch of photos before buffer lag. But it will still take time to write the info before you can view it for the first time.

i guess i was just comparing it to my fuji f70 exr and my kodak z740... both was super quick, almost instant with the pic showing on the lcd after taking the pic.

well i will know tomorrow if it's just my camera or normal... then i will need to make my decision if it's normal if i keep it or trade it for the sony A380 or canon sx.....

she said a setting that is suposed to be set " factory" wasn't???? so it had to be re set... she said they sometimes change things in the factory to "test it" not sure but it all works good now and that's all that's important! strange b/c i had "reset" it to factory settings at one point and it didn't make a difference.... but what ever she did in the end did....
