Here's my question. My wife loves taking photos of the grand-daughter and as she does not like to get the DSLR out every time, I bought her a cheap point and shoot last year (Cheap as in Nikon ...$79 at Walmart). What I want to do now is upgrade her to a better P&S. Is their a P&S that can focus and shoot fast? The current piece of junk will focus and when you push the button the rest of the way down to shoot, you lose the shot, as the subject (Grand-daughter) has moved. I don't want to buy any advanced P&S like the SX40, as they are a little to big to put in her pocket.
Thanks for the Help.... and for those who are going to ask... about $250 price range.
