Having problems with your Olympus EVOLT E-510 Body Only Digital Camera ?

Long delay on oly evolt 510 before taking picture in P,A,M modes

\015 The delay when taking pictures under program, aperture or manual modes is significant---often seconds long, but doesn't always happen! I do not have this problem with other settings, e.g auto, portrait mode, etc. Have tried changing batteries, different settings under menu but can't find what causes it. Any ideas? Thanks for any help\015

Answers :

I'm guessing you have a delay set (people will use this on a tripod). The small button on the top left (next to the flash control) will solve your problem I think.
Is it on live view?
