Hello, sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

I have a Nikon P6000, one of my friends has a Nikon DSLR. When taking photos i notice that his can take photos far far quicker, you take a photo and then it's ready to take another almost instantly. The P6000 however sometimes has to wait for the flash to load, has to wait to process the image etc.

Basically i would prefer a faster camera, but don't want to compromise on the size as the reason i got the P6000 is because of it's features in a small body. Is it simply that the DSLR is always going to be faster due to it's size etc. or are there compacts that can provide me with the fast "point and shoot" that i want?

Sorry for the muddled question, it's hard to desribe what i want!
