My first digital camera was a Fujifilm FinePix F810, which I got after a friend recommended. It was a great camera and took great 6 MP pictures. The BEST bit about it was that the shutter-release button was fast-reacting. After it died, I got a replacement battery but it's a bit bulky so I had to replace it.
Trouble is, after playing with my friends' digital cameras, I can't seem to find another with fast shutter-release reaction. Can anyone recommend a good compact digital camera for less than £200?
