I WANT TO BUY A DIGITAL CAMERA WHICH IS VERY FAST IN TAKING THE PICTURE FROM THE MOMENT I PRESS THE SHOOTING BUTTON.

I HEARD AND READ THAT CASIO CAMERAS ARE THE FASTEST..IS IT TRUE?ON DPREVIEW I FOUND OUT THAT CASIO Z 750 IS THE FASTEST COMPACT DIGITAL CAMERA ON THE MARKET..MORE THAN CANON AND NIKON...SOUNDS HARD TO BELIEVE IT..WHAT DO U THINK BOUT IT?

IS Z 110 A GOOD DEAL?COSTS LESS THAN MANY OTHERS CAMERAS AND HAS 6 MP...PLUSS IF WHAT I HEARD IS TRUE..ALL THIS SHOULD MAKE OF IT A GREAT DEAL...WHAT D U SAY??

I can tell you the Canon DSLR's, ie Rebel XT and 20D are very fast.

The quickness is measured in miliseconds.

My 20D is faster than my film camera.

The Z750 is pretty quick, but it doesn't have a burst mode. It is truly the fastest small camera on the market in manual focus, but manual focus doesn't have a digital readout of focus distance, the scale is worthless and it is hard to get accurate focus on the LCD in bright light. I wouldn't consider that a big factor.

Imaging Resource has a page like this for all of their cameras: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/Z750/Z750DATA.HTM It is under "Picky Details" for quick reviews and under "Shutter Lag and Cycle Time Tests" in the full reviews. There is often a large difference between shutter lag at wide and telephoto, and it pays to read the specifics rather than an overview in conclusions. They also have the data in dpreview tests, but they don't test as many pocket type cameras.

I haven't seen a complete review of the Z110 with all of the speeds. Recent small Casios tend to be quick. You will love the past movie mode where you just aim the camera and wait for something to happen. When you start recording it records the previous 5 seconds from the buffer and continues recording. It eliminates grinding away waiting for something to happen. You can also fit a lot more on a card with MPEG4. From preliminary reviews it seems the Z750 has a better lens. CNET didn't like the photo quality of the Z110, but I don't find them very good at camera reviews.
