View Full Version : Digi cam, with very low shutter lag

I need a camera around 150-250 with a reasonable quality and very low shutter lag, for taking pictures of moving RC cars. Any ideas?

can start here: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=85794

Read the reviews on the same page first. then look around at Amazon, Pixmania, etc

you may need to get good size (fast) SD card and a case, ebuyer good for SD cards and have cases, and tripods under accessories................ still think that moving RC cars will be a challange with any digital camera in this price range

Get yourself on ebay & look for Cannon 300D. A reasonable one will be top end of your price bracket but so worth it if you want the beast shots.

Andy Shillito on here (andys) got a canon 300d from canon uk on ebay, basically I guess these are returned and refurbished, im sure it was under 300... andy ?
either way, top quality camera at a cheap-cheap price, when you consider it was around 1000 new.

Canon have an "outlet" on eBay, just type canon outlet in the search box.

Scanners, printers, cameras and some times cheap camcorders, good luck

(300d will be top of your price range, and its always worth a mispell search on eBay)

There are some decnet (if a bit long in ther tooth) EOS lenses around on ebay also. I've had 2 off ebay from 'PHONEBUSTA', lots to choose from, don't bid alot & you'll eventually get one for relative peanuts.

Blimey, bit more than your original budget but its a top camera. I personally like the colours better than my Canon, they are just- nice!:)
