Ok, I have just upgraded (i hope) to an Olympus E-510. I've been having trouble with the camera taking pictures fast enough. The flash (even when I supposedly turn it off) takes forever to "allow" the camera to shoot. Most of the time I am in an outdoor environment and have the flash turned off anyways. However, the flash still tries to go off and the camera will not shoot until the flash does its jittery flashing cycle. My fiancee has a Canon EOS DSLR and that thing is superfast and works fine. Im begining to become disheartened and think I have a defective flash or camera or something, any help would be great! Keep in mind i am a DSLR newbie! Thanks!
