Default I want a fast shutter/capture with clear pic

please help... I have an old kodak easyshare c813. I thought this camera sucked until I bought a nikon coolpix s3300 2days ago! I was excited to get a new slim camera. The pix stink! It takes forever to take the pictures, they look blurry, and after studying online I think it has to do with the shutter lag? I'm not familiar with all of this but I'm def liking my old fashion kodak easy share way better at this point. I do not want to go over the $130 limit which I kno compromises the value, but my old camera was $79 and now I value it. Im even debating looking for my old camera and buying it new again. I have kids and like to get the pic fast and crisp... please any suggestions? thank you..

Can you post an example of a photo you're not pleased with?

shutter lag or shutter speed? were you taking a pic of a moving or still when you shot the blurry pics?

You might be able to get a used camera for that amount. According to cameras.co.uk, the Fuji Finepix F770EXR and Nikon s100 are probably the fastest pocket cameras you can purchase with Fuji on top. I compared single shot, shot to shot, single shot with flash, and shot to shot with flash lag times and the fuji appears to give the best overall result. The Panasonic DMC SZ1 which lags slightly behind the Nikon is probably the cheapest option. You can purchase this one brand new for $125.00. Come back here and let us know your real world results with the camera.
