Fast AF Canon compact for under £100

(1/2) > >>

Haydn1971:
I'm out on site next week - I'm a civil engineer - and rather than take my DSLR for photos of the road that I'm looking at, I thought I'd take my older Fuji E900 camera which from what I recall took semi decent photos for my site needs - however having pulled the camera out this morning, I was stunned by the sheer pedestrian speed of the auto focus, so I'm looking today for a cheap but fast AF compact camera for £100 or preferably less.

Main question is, are my expectations high due to using DSLR's for 4 years ?

Unless you usually use live view AF, probably...   CDAF is ssssllllooooowwwwwwww.

I'd be happy with iPhone 5 speed AF - actually pondering using that instead...

Nah, strike that...   Just tried the zoom function on my phone and its pants. ;-)

Back to a compact camera I think

Oh dear...   I've only gone and bought myself a EOS M !
