Hello,

I'm in the market for a point and shoot camera. I would like at least 4 mega pixels. I need a camera that does not have much of a delay from when you push the shutter button to when the picture is actually taken. I had a Canon in the past, which had a long delay time.

Can anyone recommend a camera like this? Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

-Curtis

Give us a couple more hints...does camera size matter? Do you have a price ceiling? Is there a special type of photography you're interested in?

4 MP is easy. Short shutter lag is tougher, especially if you're looking for a small camera.

Hello,

Ideally I'd like a slim camera. However if I have to sacrifice size for short shutter lag I will. I'm looking to spend $300.00 or less.

I want this camera so I can take candid shots of my friends and family in casual settings.

It would be nice if I could adjust the flash output as well. With my old camera, flash shots would really blow out the subject.

I also enjoy shooting nature and landscape photography. A self-timer would be nice, so I can set up a shot and have myself in it.

Thanks for responding so quickly!

I'm not sure how thick 'slim' is, but I think the Fuji F31fd camera would suit most if not all of your needs. The F31fd has 6MP resolution, very short shutter lag (0.01 to 0.02 seconds, pre-focused), a self timer, (2 or 10 seconds), 'intelligent' flash (which adjusts for distance to subject), it is within your price range, and it is slim (well, if you consider 1.1" thick to be slim).

Hope that helps.
