Default Fast compact camera!

Hi everyone!
I'm looking for a compact camera that can shot very fastly!
I like Samsung Wb2000/TL350 very much!
What about that camera? Is there something better at the same price?

luke-

I seriously looked at the TL350, but I also determined that it had a few problems, at least for me. The firmware seems to get a bit irratic and I did not want to deal with that.

In the end I purchased the Canon SD-4000 when Amazon had a one day special on it at $209. I received the camera yesterday, and I am very pleased with the camera's performance. The camera action is very fast and the focus very accurate. The SD-4000 has a lot of nice features.

Here is a photo sample, and there is a bunch of other photos in the "Low Light Capable Camera thread that I began on 12/06.

But what are these problem?
I read that it affects only Raw images and videos... is it true?? In which way?
Thank you

I will tell just what I know: A good friend, Skylark (a very technically adept guy), after waiting all through the TL350 delivery delay, found that when he finally received the TL350, he could not get the video to work properly at all. Based on his experience, I decided against purchasing the TL350.

As I have already told you I was able to find a great buy on the Canon SD-4000, and I have been very happy with the speed, functionality, and performance of the SD-4000.
