Shutter speed is not your problem. What you are referring to is called "shutter lag" -the length of time from depressing the shutter release button to when the picture is actually recorded. This shutter lag time is inherent to all digital cameras to some degree. When you shop for a new camera, look for one that has minimal lag and your problems will be solved.
Hello, this is all very new to me. I'm looking for a compact or ultra compact camera to take with me when I go mountain biking.
The number one concern for me is shutter speed. It seems most of my friends who have digi cam's have very slow shutter speed. Which in turn, causes us to have "after the fact" shots.
Any and all advice/input is greatly apprectiated.
