Hi, to avoid disappointment I would only be considering a DSLR, because the main problem with other types of cameras is shutter lag. You are already familiar with this as you say that your own camera is not fast enough. Believe me you would not be disappointed if you saved a bit more in order to buy a DSLR, I've found that with cameras you skimp at your own downfall. I'm still as thrilled at what my camera turns out as the day I bought it 3 years ago, and I would advise anyone who seeks to upgrade to consider a DSLR in order to avoid being sorry later. Or, as some will say, it's horses for courses. All the best.
