Digital Camera Shutter Lag Comparison Table

The Shutter Lag Comparison Table shows the amount of time it takes each camera to record one shot and five shots. Shutter lag is the delay between pressing the shutter button and the camera recording the picture. Cameras with a long delay may cause you to miss photo opportunities. This can be a major problem for fast moving subjects such as animals, sports and children.

The table can be sorted to meet your own requirements. For example you may wish to sort the table so that all cameras with low shutter lag times appear at the top of the table. Click on a column heading to resequence the table. By clicking on the name of a camera you will be taken to a review of the camera.
