    I suspect you have the camera set to Auto Focus
    this will cause a delay when taking each photo...

    REASON: When the count down reaches the end (3-2-1)
    the software send the command to the camera to TAKE the photo.
    This would be instantly done if the camera is in Manual focus
    because when in Auto Focus, the camera receives the command
    and now need to Focus before taking the photo(s) causing the delay..
