Response Times


Definition: Response times are the collection of times, or delays, that occur as a digital camera functions, including startup time, shutter lag, and shot to shot delays.

Response times will vary among different models of digital cameras. A digital camera model with poor response times can be frustrating to use, because it can cause you to miss some spontaneous photos. Generally, low-priced, beginner-level digital cameras will have poorer response times than high-priced, advanced-level digital cameras.
