The shutter lag on my Fujifilm FinePix S1800 is much longer in EVF mode (just under half a second) than in LCD mode (about 0.15 seconds). What would explain this anomaly?

I would guess a firmware bug since, as far as I know, the LCD and EVF are getting their data in the same way. The only real difference is a minor one in the resolution which, I suppose, could cause one to have more processing over the other and so make the camera a little less responsive. However, since this is all guess, I just posted a comment. – John Cavan Jul 11 '12 at 23:55
    
Are you sure you've controlled for all variables? That sounds like the sort of difference you'd expect between all of the auto focus / exposure running and not. – Whelkaholism Sep 18 '15 at 11:49
