I don't know of a camera that will do what you want, in that price range.
If you are taking flash pictures; all digital cameras take about 2.5 seconds between pictures. Most of that time is to recharge the flash.
If you are taking pictures in low light (no flash); the camera must use a slow shutter speed in order to collect enough light to produce a proper exposure. This also requires that the camera be held steady to prevent blurring. And the subject must be motionless.
The only solution is to use flood lights to illuminate the subject.
That is the way, the professionals get those great shots.
Hi I am pretty much a dummy when it comes to digital cameras so hope I can explain what I am looking for....I have a toddler and the Kodak camera I have now takes pictures too slow and I am often missing her cute moments. I want a camera that will allow me to take pictures in a quicker fashion...I think this is called the shutter speed but am not sure. I also of course want decent quality and clarity to the pictures. I am willing to spend upwards of about $250 for a good quality camera. I of course would like one that is not overly bulky but more important is how quickly it can take the pictures and the quality of those pictures.
If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful!
