Please help with important question
Hi all, I was all preped to buy the A80 or the s400 ( it was up to my wife - it will be her's ) and I found it took about 3 seconds to take the picture. This is extremely too long and here is my question. Is that the time it takes to take the picture all the time, or was it because we were in full auto mode. I didn't have time to ask at the store because we showed up close to closing time. I plan on going back, but is this normal. My 4 year old 1 megapixel camera takes a faster picture, almost instantaneous. It doesn't make sense to me that a newer and more improved camera would be about 12 times slower. He suggested to me to buy the Minolta Z1, he says it's quite fast, but he was all out, so I didn't get to see for myself. I hope someone who has the A80 or the s400 can take the time to explain their experience with it and confirm or contradict these findings.
