    I want a pocket size digital camera that has a fast start-up speed, BUT more importantly one that takes the photo instantly when you press the button. Too many cameras have that terrible delay between press and snap.

    My minimum specs are:

    3+ mp
    4 optical zoom

    Looking at Sony DSC v-1, even pentax optio 555, but still to dear at £280+.

    Any advice on Olympus, Canon models?

    II though pentax optio 555 was still in the plus £350 region.

    I found a great site for comparing 2 camera pictures against each other here.

    Also some talk of speed shots here.

    It seems as though there is not a perfect camera I seem to find one then discover it has a weakness. At present it looks as though it is going to be a Olympus 765 as it is just small enough to gat in a jacket pocket yet has a 10* zoom and good macro so I can get some good wildlife shots.

    Just been looking for myself and found this article here.

    QUOTE:Olympus's new TruePic Turbo image processor claims quicker start-up and less shutter delay. While the C-765 had the slowest boot and the second-slowest recycle times in this roundup, it seemed quick to focus and performed well in the field. Along with the Panasonic, it was the best for shooting action up close.

    The casio elxilm ex s3 has a very fast (the fastest?) start up and shutter release, due to its fixed focus lens system.

    It has a 3mp sensor, but no optical zoom.

    you dont want a camera without an optical zoom, another thing to think about is the pre flash to stop red eye. I bought the canon S1 yesterday (great camera) lil to big for you i think, as its 10x optical. I had the ixus 400 and its start up to shot time was great. But the link i gave you will give you all the detals you need.
