thanks for the link that is very helpful.
i guess im a bit in limbo because im looking for something better then a point and shoot but most of the prosumer cameras are more then i want to spend. that said the Nikon coolpix p5000 seems to be close to what im looking for
shutter lag is also one of the more important features that i am looking at, is there a chart that compares this that i have not found yet?
cycle times is a bit less important then the time for the first picture for me.
for indoor pictures i am hoping to find something that can take good(not perfect) quality pics without a flash
thanks for you quick reply
