    It's been mentioned that one pseudo solution to the shutter lag (yes, I know there is no actual 'shutter') is to use burst. That would seem to be a workaround for some situations. Would you expect image quality to suffer? Does HDR still work while bursting?

    Image quality doesn't suffer. Honestly for still shots I don't really need to burst. But when I'm trying to take a shot of something moving the only time I have success is with the burst.

    I'm not sure about hdr, I'll test it out tomorrow.

    Sorry, what is HDR? I haven't read all the specs yet. Thanks.

    High dynamic range. It is a common feature of digital cameras these days. Three photos are taken in rapid succession - one with normal exposure, and one each slightly overexposed and underexposed. The camera software then combines those to make a photo that captures more detail. It's good for landscape photos, not so good for photos of people, animals, sports, etc.

    The camera software has an auto HDR mode that should sense when it's appropriate for the lighting conditions when you take a photo, but you can force it on as well.

    Ok, just took a bunch of series with HDR on. It was auto before. It seems to add just a slight delay before the bursting started.

    The landscape still action came out great. Took about 5 bursts. Then I took about 30 of my dog running around the yard barking at the garbage truck. Surprisingly, not a single shot was blurry. I'll mess around more later, but so far the only downside from HDR on rather than auto or off is that there's slightly more delay than normal for the first shot. The normal shutter lag is pretty noticeable though. I'm guessing here, but with HDR off the shutter speed feels like half a second. With it on it feels like just around a second.

    Great. That would mean that the actual shutter speed is fairly quick. Thanks for the demo.
