Upcomming Episode: Digital Cameras

My pet peeve with digital cameras is shutter lag, the time between when you press the shutter button (after focusing) and the time it takes the picture. I can't even count the number of times I ended up with a picture feet! What causes this? Are some cameras better then others? Would a different digital media (SD) card make a difference?

Also, what specs do I look for in a camera to be able to stop action? From what I've experienced, setting a camera to "shutter priority" is not enough. My action sport photos, both indoors and out, many times come out blurry.

Thanks for the help. Love the PodCast,
