    Nothing special, just something that doesn't take a lot of time to turn on and take pictures. Decent resolution would be nice too.

    I think the olympuses or minolta point and shoots have a fast start up time. CAn't remember which. Read some reviews :dunno:

    I thought it was one of them. I think it has the fastest startup and the shortest shutter lag of a p&s iirc :wiggle:

    Could always take the plunge and get a 350d - 0.2 second startup.

    Otherwise, steer clear from an olympus stylus, they take approximately 4 seconds to get the first shot.

    Some of the old Olympus yes, but some of the newer models from Olympus in their Stylus lines the past year, year and half, have much faster startups. Example, the Stylus 500 and Styles Verve only takes a second to startup.

    I believe the SD400 has a fast startup.

    yeah i suggest you provide more info of your requirements. are you looking for a compact or SLR? by fast, do you mean fast ISOs, fast shutter speeds, fast flash sync, fast focussing/shooting etc etc....

    once you say what your priorities are it becomes much easier to suggest something.

    I've been looking at different P&S cameras - something fast and compact so I can carry it around easily. The Minolta's seem really good. I'm planning on picking up the Minolta Dimage G600. Compact, 6mp, w/ 1.3 second start-up time, and found it for $218 brand new :)

    well, D70 then.

    but if he wants something he can stick in his pocket as well he's shit out of luck with a D70, unless he wears cargo pants :)
