    I'm looking for a camera similiar to a Canon A80 or G3 of similiar image
    quality but with very little or no shutter lag. Any thoughts?

    I have a Fuji S602. The shutter lag is very minimal. And if you want to
    pre-focus or manual focus, you can take a shot just about instantly. Also,
    using continuous shooting will get you 5 frames in one second.

    Casio is hyping their QV-R51 as having the shortest shutter lag of any
    digicam.

  5. What kind of oracle power do you possess to know that so certain?

  6. I took it to mean that *he* had no thoughts on the subject. I figure
    most people are competent to pronounce on *their own* thoughts.

    Well, actually I kinda suspected he really means that the answer is
    "no", as in "ain't no such animal".

  7. It's good to see some attention being paid to the issue.

    Casio is claiming .01 second, or 10 milliseconds. That's
    *considerably* faster than even a Leica rangefinder, never mind an
    ordinary film SLR (which are in the range of 75 milliseconds).

    My old Epson 850Z digicam I measured at 150 milliseconds (after doing
    everything to reduce the time; prefocus and so forth). That was long
    enough to be a royal PITA.

    Few people complain much about the shutter lag on film SLRs, so
    apparently 75ms is "good enough" for most purposes. (People often
    complain about the auto-focus time, but that's a different issue.)

    Get a no zoom DC such as Fuji MX-1200(or 1300)..
    It never fails me until I drop it into sea water.

  10. If you look at another reply by tbm further down this thread,
    you can clearly see that maybe tbm do not think at all.
    That was my interpretation. And ... it is wrong. There do exist
    some cameras that have very low shutter lag, both expensive
    and more consumer priced.

    You can browse thrught the camera descriptions at www.dpreview.com
    and look for cameras with low delay.
