Default Digital camera with fast response time

I am looking for a digital camera with fast response time. I have a 18 month old daughter, and sometimes my current camera (canon sd850is). I have had canon a95 in the past.

What is a camera with a fast response time?

It gets down to how fast is fast. Please do not use you Canon A-95 camera as a bench mark because it certainly does have a lot of shutter lag.

Most cameras today, when pre-focused by depressing the shutter button half way, have an average of only 1/10th of a second shutter lag or delay. That is far faster than the old Canon A-95. You seem to prefer Canon cameras, so why not take a look at the Canon A-2000 which is equipped with IS and has very little shutter lag. It sells for around $(US) 150.00. Purchase your camera from a vendor suchas www.amazon.com that has a full 30 day return period without any re-stocking charges.

You should also be looking for a new camera that is equipped with IS or image Stabilization. It is a feature that prevents photo blurring due to our own very small inadvertent hand movements.
