Default p&s with short lag time

Hi all. I'm curious to know if anyone has advice on a point and shoot with short shutter lag. My primary camera is a canon rebel and I am looking for a pocket camera. The most annoying thing about them can be the shutter lag especially when you are used to essentially none! Thanks

docmom-

Welcome to The Forum. We're pleases that you dropped by.

Canon had your desires well in mind, The S-90 pocket camera has a very short shutter lag time reported to be a very sort.1 second in the wide angle position on the zoom and .2 at the far end of the 3.8X optical zoom range.

plus, your Canon software (RAW converters, etc) will overlap nicely by staying in the Canon family.

if it is above your budget, the ZR1 from Panasonic is pretty quick too.

Thanks guys! I hve to admit I've been looking at the s90. I have a fondness for canon, and it looks like it would be ideal. Its just that price tag! isn't that always the way! I may have to bite the bullet.
