There is going to be shutter lag in just about any P&S. They simply aren't designed to do the work of a DSLR. They are aimed at the average person who just wants family and vacation photo albums, not at serious wildlife, landscape, portrait, and sports photographers. You can upgrade to most any entry level DSLR (Canon T2i, T3i) with the 18-55 kit lens and set it on the green box and you have a DSLR P&S (minus the shutter lag), but it also gives you the opportunity to progress beyond that point, and most who start that route do. The T2i with EF-S18-135 lens is $839 now at B&H Photo, the same body with the EF-S 18-55 lens is just $649, and either one will give you much more satisfying results than most any P&S.
