  • Everyone I've seen is like that. The super expensive SLR types might not be but we are talking near or over $1000 for the camera.

  • Neither of our Olympus digitals have long delays between pictures. A Sony we had previously was like waiting on Christmas though.

  • I also have a Kodak EasyShare (Z760). This is what I figured out eventually. If you have just taken a picture and are waiting for the LCD display to change back to live view so you can take another picture, just click the "Review" button twice--quickly--and the display screen will return to live view and you can take another.

  • Mine is quite fast, it's a Cannon PowerShot S5IS. I love it, it takes beautiful pictures and it was only $350.00. The new one I'm getting is 15 megapixles, and there is NO delay what so ever. The more you pay the better the camera, kinda like everything else in this world, you get what you pay for.

  • I have a brand new Canon Powershot, and you can set the delay in between pics. See if you can do that with yours. It should be in your menu on the camera.

  • I hate the delay on point and shoot digital cameras. It takes forever from when you push the button to when it actually shoots and then forever to save it to the memory card. I now have a digital SLR camera (which was a gift). There is no delay (except when I'm shooting in low light with the camera flash in auto I just don't do it) at all. It works just like a film camera. I have a Canon Rebel XTi. My dad got the basic kit (camera and 2 lenses) at Costco for like $800. They have a newer model out so you could probably find one cheaper. Their worth it if you really like to take pictures.
