okay I figured out what shutter lag is...but I do still need help figuring out which camera's have the LEAST shutter-lag...any suggestions?
I don't know a thing about camera's, and that's why I'm coming here-- to hopefully get some help!
I want to buy a digital camera and have been looking around. My friend just got a Canon Powershot SD300, and I love it, because it takes nice pictures and is SO small. However, I noticed when I was using it, there is a pause between when I click the button to when the picture actually takes. I don't know what the technical term for this is, but what is that delay? Its frustrating to me, because I was trying to take pictures of my friend playing basketball, but everytime I clicked the button for the perfect picture of him making a shot... it took what seemed like 3 seconds to actually take! And when that 3 seconds passes...the great picture opportunity is over.
So I am hoping to get a little insight on what this delay is, which camera's I can get that WON'T have that long of a delay, etc. Any advice would be SO helpful! Thank you!
