Out of interest, what are today's cameras like as regards taking shots one after the other? I've got an old Kodak DC210 super zoom made in '97-98. It uses compact flash and takes pics at a max of just under a Megapixel. When I take a photo with it, I have to wait about six seconds before the little light turns green so I can take another shot. Is this a limitation of the camera or the compact flash card? The card I use is a Fuji 64Mb standard card (with the low spec of the camera I can take a max of 230 shots before the card is full) The agonising delay kills me, especially when trying to take pictures of animals or the kids (there's a difference?). Also, the low res is so noticeable. My sister has a 1.3Mp camera which is much better, and my other sister has something better still, like a 1.5 I love their cameras, but would prefer something still higher. But if I were to get a new camera, would I still suffer from the long delay between being able to take pics?
