For a while I have been puzzled by a feature of the E-510 which I found
annoying, but mostly it was a minor inconvenience. Until yesterday.
I was photographing flowers ( surprise - surprise - roses again, but a
different location) and there were fitful eddies of wind around as an
overhead gale was working up. But the light was nice.
Every time I pressed the shutter button there would be a pause of what
seemed to be 2 seconds before the exposure was made. A lot can happen in 2
seconds, and I was missing a lot of shots as the flower got moved again
So I sat down and went over the controls. I was using the tripod, and had
IS set to OFF, so that wasn't it. I checked the separate (button) control
for self-timer. That was off.
So what could it be?
I went through the entire menu, and the very last entry is something I
don't recall seeing before ( but probably did) called anti-shake. It was
set to 1 second.
I set that to OFF, and exposures became near instantaneous. :-)
