My wife wants a compact digital camera (i.e., not an SLR) that has the shortest shutter lag time and which also takes great pictures. She wants to be able to take several shots without waiting for the camera to recycle, as she has complained about missing numerous shots while the camera recycles from the previous shot. She saw a photographer on TV clicking numerous shots in rapid succession, and she said that's what she wants to do. Problem is, he was using a high-end SLR that likely cost well north of $1,000. So, does anyone know whether a compact digital camera with similar functionality exists yet? I've been researching this online for some time and keep hitting dead ends. Thanks!
