Question about Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera
Posted by Anonymous on
Thats going to be a problem with most digital cameras in that price range (and even some $$ ones) really the only thing I can recommend is PF.F.S. That would be Pre-Focus -- Frame -- Shot. Many people try to frame a photo up then focus/shot all in one, but this does not always work. So if your looking to speed things up a little, just half press the button to get a prefocus and then do your magic. Really everything I talked about above was Focus-lag, not actually shutter lag. But since this is often confussed I thought I would add it in.

IN reality there is a solution to this, its called DSLR. No most of these consumer cameras in that price range have the same problem. The big reason is COST. To get less shutter lag, you have to end up putting more into a camera and then to total cost just jumped up. OVer all I have used A80 and found with some prefocusing its VERY fast for the price range. Again most people see the effect of focus lag than shutter lag, but it is deffinalty there. Actually I just went to a website to see what the shutter lag was on the A80. When prefocusing the A80 has a shutter lag of .100 which is VERY fast compaired to others. The link is below (http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/A80/A80DATA.HTM) The problem with this camera is the focus lag as I talked about before.
