Question about Pentax Optio S7 Digital Camera
This is a common situation with most compact point&shoot cameras. The camera has to do a lot of work when you press the shutter release button: it must focus on the subject, meter the light for proper exposure, and switch the electronics from displaying on the LCD to recording the image to memory. Larger (and more expensive) cameras have additional hardware to deal with most of this, eliminating the "shutter lag."
You can reduce the lag by pressing the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter the exposure. Keep the button halfway down until the right moment and then press it the rest of the way down.
