Shutter lag differs with inside and outside pictures
on October 25, 2012
I bought this camera because it had good reviews, it stated it took professional type pictures at the zoo. But I had one big problem with it. Even though the quality is great, the shutter lag (time between pressing the button and when it actually takes the shot) when taking pictures indoors is too long. Outside theres hardly a noticable delay. And because I bought it to take pictures of puppies, it was quite frustrating, as the little guys tend to move alot. Also the delay between pictures is longer than I'd like, after the flash I get the full attention of my little subjects only as long as the delay. Some of its good qualities are if you forget to put a camera card in, you have the option to transfer photos from camera to card. It also has a touch screen, so when getting your subjects prepaired for a picture you can just tap the screen to shoot. I know I need a more expensive camera but can't afford it, so with some practice I was still able to get some really good shots.
