Question about Cameras
This is a common problem with digital cameras. Canon makes a great camera you just need to know the trick. The shutter release has two stages the first lets the camera do metering the second takes the pic. to get action shots you need to frame the photo before the action ( set up the pic in the veiw finder or lcd display) the press the release to the first stop and wait for the green box or bracket (depending on model) the shot is now ready as soon as you press down the rest of the way it will immediatly take the pic.
this is the only way I'm aware of to get an action pic with a digital point and shoot. You bought a great camera but it's not quite an SLR.
hope this helps
