Shutter Lag

I do not want to step up to a DSLR.

But is there a Point and Shoot with minimal shutter lag? Or do I have to go base DSLR?

My guess is children
and in low / medium light

that 1/2 second seems to take forever..

It's better but not gone with the SLR's .. still have af time.. which can be pretty long if the lighting isnt really good

still had this tab open from last week..
mostly common sense.. but most of these things are mostly common sense

but sadly if it is kid/animal photography in med/low light.. it all goes out the window.. as they either can't don't or won't listen.. and even if they did.. so much for the *neat* action shots

Yea I don't have any specific info but I'm guessing a G9 or G10 would be a better match, but I still wouldn't expect to see top performance for dark shots with kids moving around. You might want to see if anyone has one for you to try before dropping $500 on a G9 or related camera.
