This is very odd, I also have a Torch and do not see any delay, save my pictures to the media card (16 Gb), but do not have compression on. I can certainly see where compression could delay it. How about the location service, does he have that turned on, since it would need to find a GPS fix prior to saving the file. Sometimes if you are in a building, or in a downtown area it can take a while for the GPS radio to locate you, hence the picture would not be saved. I have location turned off since it does seem to delay things as far as picture taking is concerned.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful, and optimistic. And we will change the world. - Jack Layton (1950-2011)
