shutter lag

shutter lag

In a digital camera, the delay between pressing the button to take a picture and its actual completion (image recorded onto the sensor). Shutter lag, which can be up to a second or more, is mostly found on low-end, point-and-shoot cameras with slower electronics. Film cameras have always had a minuscule delay that is hardly noticeable. See shutter speed.
