RoyG - I believe the Ricoh Calipo models are advertising low shutter lags, so perhaps you might like to try one of those out and see if it meets your needs.

We tried a Ricoh partly because of the 'speed' claims - I strongly recommend against it.

The issues that the camera would either a) not take a photo at all when the shutter was pressed (outdoors in daylight) or b) had a much longer lag than promised (probably due to focusing issues I suspect) and c) could not focus properly in reasonable light (windows with daylight)taking photos of small groups of people - was one set of issues - Like it won't take photos!, but then customer service have told us the camera is working to specification.

We also provided them with 2 CD's of photos taken with their camera, and our little point and click to illustrate the 50-70% out of focus issues with the Ricoh.

We have had point and clicks, compacts, SLR's - developed our own phots...... we will be staying well away from Ricoh!
