fastest shoot time
by LHazlewood / October 24, 2005 6:53 AM PDT

Last year when I was looking for a digital camera, I wanted to know the same thing. I tried a lot of cameras and I found the Kodak 7440 to be one of the fastest.

I eventually bought the camera online and I have been very happy with it. Good luck in your camera search.

Canon vs. Olympus vs. The Rest

How are Canon and Olympus in terms of speed, and how do they compare with the other cameras out there?

second up to at least 23 frames. It can also turn on, focus, and shoot in just about the amount of time it takes to press the shutter button. However, the thread said "point & shoot". Although the 20D can point & shoot, I don't think it's in the intended category.

Canon - Olympus
by snapshot2 Forum moderator / October 24, 2005 9:37 AM PDT

Canon shutter lag times tend to be "average"
Olympus times tend to be a bit better.

But it depends upon what camera model your addressing.

Within the last three months there have been a lot of new cameras introduced and there is not much shutter lag information available on them.

The Camera companies seldom specify shutter lag times.
We have to wait until the cameras are reviewed.
Some reviewers give shutter lag figures.

The Kodak cameras have been showing good shutter lag figures. Typically in the range of 0.2 to 0.4 second.

Casio has several cameras that have a shutter lag of only 0.1 second:

Casio - X750, Z50, Z55
