python's performance

I used python and PIL to capture image from a digital camera,
It seems like it took more than 1 second to capture a 1280x1024 image,
however, the demo capturing application from the company (coded by VB)
took only .2s or less for one image with the same size.
Don't know why python and PIL is so slow, any idea to improve the
performance? Thanks a lot!
