Hi All

I am after a p&s camera with a fast shutter lag for my wife.She currently has a Fuji f440 but finds it too slow for capturing pics of our fast moving grandchildren.Also we are going on a vacation to Europe in August and I'd like it to be a backup for my Pentax K10 DSLR.

Any advice would be appreciated

Hi,

I just got through doing a bit of research for my daughter who is going on vacation and wanted a P&S with many of the same characteristicsthat you've mentioned. But she also wanted something small that she could put inside her pocket.

You didn't mention your budget but, you may want to read the review found on this website on the Canon SD870 IS camera.
It offers blazing speed, a wide angle lens, built in image stabilization, ease of use, and excellent image quality.

good luck

Zig

Thanks Zig for your response.I hadn't really set a budget but I'm prepared to pay up to about $600.00.I've read the review on the Canon SD870 IS and it sounds just like the camera I am after.I'll go and check it out today.

Thanks again

Geepee
