    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
