Wanted ~ Advice from People with camera knowledge! Please!!

I am after a new camera (hopefully) up to the value of about £80! The main thing i want it to do or rather not to do is to take ages to take a picture and by then the picture moment has passed! I try and take pictures of my daughter with my current camera (which is rather old!) but by the time it actually takes the photo ~ she has moved or/and the picture is blurred and useless!! Can anyone take a moment to suggest a couple to me which deals with this issue??! Many thanks! Kelly xxx

Every Digital Camera I have ever used has had this problem.
Except one DSLR that was "aways on" it kept taking pictures as soon as you started to press the button.. that Ate memory and the camera cost £8-900 [it wasn't mine]
My current Olympus Mu890 isn't too bad for lag but that is still £100+

I'd recommend the Canon cameras...

Startup time on my Ixus 80 is around 1-2 seconds and takes pictures quickly.

Obviously I'm only going on my own experience, there will be faster ones out there, but I don't know about the price bracket (Ixus 80 is around £150 ish).

If you can go to £85 this is a brilliant digital camera & a bargain for under £100

I have the Ixus 80, and several more expensive cameras. I think the Ixus 80 is brilliant and is available from Amazon for £120 delivered here http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_ss_w_h_?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=ixus+80&x=11&y=12

The best bet would be to try cameras in a local shop, most shops will have some demo ones for you to try. Because what one person describes as quick may still seem slow for you.

Another way around this is many cameras also have some form of fast shoot mode, in which they will take several photo's quickly of which you can then choose the ones you like to keep. I know this is not totally what your after but may be something to consider too.

I had the same problem with my old camera went and bought a sony one for just under a under (cheaper now tho) and i find it a very good camera. doesn't take long to load or to tak pictures has multi shot so you can get a lot and once. I used it for the granite city rally and got great pictures with it.

Konica Minolta Z3, might be slightly over budget but worth it.

A low shutter lag time and quick autofocus - generally the wider the lens opens (the smaller the F-number eg F2.8) the better it is for AF.

It is a common problem faced by many photographers and to really get around the problem you need to spend considerably more money unfortunately.
