Hey guys, I love my A520, my biggest gripe is how slow it takes pictures when I am using the flash. Do you know if the A570 is any faster? I have read that it is caused by the lack of current available in 2 AA batteries to be able to quickly charge up the capacitor. So, being that the A570 uses only 2 AAs as well, I don't have my hopes up.

You're probably right about the 2 vs. 4 AA batteries.The A630/640 (w/4 AA's) flash recycle times are about half of the A570 (w/2 AA's).

There might be a work around that would help. By using higher ISO setting for your flash photos, less light is required and less recharge time is required. It works with the Canon A-710, another 2 AA size battery camera.
