Hi what a great site

Im new here and i am trying to improve my understanding of all the jargon surrounding digital seems to me stuff becomes obsolete very quickley in this field or am i missing something??

I bought a nikon coolpix 5700 in 2005 and at the time it was reviewed as one of the best digital comps on the market and to be fair ive had some great detailed shots with it..but i have also missed some great shots due to shutter lag; startup time etc and probably my own fault .."can,t blame the camera all the time" anyway what im trying to say old canon T90 was much better at capturing those fleeting chances that present themselves now and then..
Now to my question,..i dont want to carry a DSLR around any more as they are to much of a temptation to our local yob problem....Ive been looking at a canon seems to respond to the shutter more quickly than my nikon and what would be the best 4 gig sdcard for it ???

cheers everyone

Hi geomac,

You can usually find a product compatibility link on the major manufacturers' websites. For example, for SanDisk click here and for Kingston click here. Sorry, but can't find one on the Lexar site. :(

Hi geomac, things havent' moved on that much, as most compacts (non-DSLRs) are still slow to respond to the shutter release. If you want quick or instant response, you should buy yourself a DSLR - see this article... ... DSLR.shtml

Thanks for the input lads....
Its got to be a compact Gordon, iunderstand what your saying but a DSLR is to big and bulky for me.... :( so its looking like the G9..will let you know when i get one.
Having done a bit more research on sd cards i think a sandisk ultra 11 2 gig will be okay for it...Bob :)
