best digital camera with no delay

by bmsvl / March 7, 2006 8:50 AM PST

hi! I'm looking for a digital camera that takes shots like an original film camera. The delay in our digital is so slow and I wind up missing some great shots of our 5 month old baby. Can someone recommend a good one?

Either Canon EOS20D ( and upcoming 30D )or Nikon D200 will definitely suit your need. In additions, you can shoot in the continuous mode for 5 frames per second; therefore, you won't miss any wanted shot. DSLR handle shutter lag the best, but you must have a budget to spend for accessories, such as lenses and external flash.

Shutter Lag
by snapshot2 Forum moderator / March 7, 2006 12:27 PM PST

If you are looking for point-and-shoot cameras, the best (shortest) lag is 0.1 second:

Canon SD550
Casio Z50, Z55, Z750

The Z750 also has manual controls.

That is all that I know of.
