"RE: D3100 slow to take picture"
Hi Christine,Welcome to Nikonians!What Release mode is the camera in?What is the ambiant light level when you experience the 2-3 sec. delay?If the ambiant light level is very low the shutter speed could easily be 2-3 sec. and the root cause of your problem.Could you download a sample image to your gallery with the Exif data intact. It will help us diagnose the problem.
