-   -   P92 when using flash slows shot-to-shot (

iStudent Dec 27, 2004 3:48 PM

I have a Sony P92 camera, over all it fits me just fine. But one thing I don't like is when the flash is used; it takes about 5 seconds before I can take another picture. If I lower the flash quality to low, then it only take about 2 seconds.

I have a Lexar Pro Memory Stick, which does speed up the shot to shot rate.

Is there any way I can speed this up or fix it completely? Does anyone know if there is another 5MP camera that has no wait time between shot to shot when using the flash?

I know I can just use the burst mode, but most of the times I don't really need to use it.

All cameras need some time to recharge the flash capacitor after the flash is used. The more powerful you make the flash, more power is used up from the capacitor and the longer it takes to recharge. Some cameras are faster than others to charge the flash. I know the P93 is 1-2 seconds faster in flash recharge than the P92.
