We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget question is coming to us from Dan, who is totally over missing life's best moments due to sluggish startup speeds found on most point-and-shoot cameras. If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.
"We need a digital camera that can be switched on and fire off that first shot fast. It's not a commonly tracked statistic on any review site, and nobody seems to have this information for every camera. We were hoping other readers could inform us as to what small digital cameras can fire off their first pics in under a second (ideally under half a second). It needs to be small, but mostly, just really quick in operation. Thanks!"
Fast? Camera? Got it. Got any recommendations? Shout 'em below... with haste!
