German term or phrase: Verschluss / Auslöseverzögerung
I'm not posting these as separate questions as I need to know what is the difference.
I thought Auslöseverzögerung was shutter speed, then I've come across Verschluss in the next row of my text which also appears to be shutter speed. Perhaps the measurements will give it away to camera enthusiasts.

"Auslöseverzögerung: 0,01 Sek/ inkl. AF 0,28 Sek
Verschlusszeit: 30-1/1000 Sek

Shutter/Shutter (release) delay
In this case, "shutter (release) delay" and "shutter speed".
