My Point and Shoot died and I am planning to buy a new one. I was always happy with the picture quality, however, my 2 year old is faster that it was. Buy the time it focused and had shutter delay, she was gone. We do not want an SLR (my wife will never use it) and therefore what to find a fastpoint and shoot with little shutter lag and little time to rechage the flash. The current camera used AA bateries, I was thinking of a camera with a lithium ion battery hoping this would help.
