Conclusion: Across the board the ES55 doesn’t operate at a lightning pace but fares well against competitors in its class. It takes approximately two seconds to start-up and is relatively efficient in terms of shutter pace, but in between shots and whenever editing options or effects are applied this unit does take its time to process and readjust.
