I've had my s330 for about 2 months, but indoors and especially under low light conditions, there's about 10+ second delay. I think the flash may be charging when you hold the shutter down. It just doesn't seem normal, you miss alot of shots waiting for the flash/exposure light to come on. It's also very erratic; sometimes no lag, sometimes long (15 sec lag). When the flash is manually turned off this delay disappears. No one ever seems to mention this issue in the reviews. I called support, the guy told me it may take some time for metering under low light. It's very frustrating when you're pressing the shutter and saying "cheese" and nothing happens for 10+ seconds. Has anyone had similar experiences, I think my unit may be defective? Any suggestions?
