Shoot function takes 10 + seconds

Hello,

I have made a script to take a picture and do a bunch of other stuff that is irrelevant to my problem at hand.

My problem is that when I call shoot it takes 10+ seconds before it actually shoots. As soon as I press the button the screen goes black then 10 sec later it fires shutter...

Does anyone have any idea why this could be?

Cannon SX100 IS

:power
do
a = get_usb_power
print a
sleep 1000
until a > 1
goto "main"

:main
take_photo_now
sleep 250
enable_usb_download
sleep 9000
disable_usb_download

goto "power"

End

You are in SDM synch mode.

Put this at the start of your script :-

sync_off

or

synch_off
