When the shutter clicks a little late...

Split Second - a photo (transformed into a cartoon) that demonstrates " that split second delay between pressing the button and getting the picture when taking photos with a digital camera" (shutter lag).

If you love dogs, this link is great for two reasons - it's a daily cartoon about dogs, and this one demonstrates what happens when the shutter closes just a little bit late. Read the comments for more demonstrations - my favorite comment so far is this one (from Diane):

Quote:
My husband came home from a walk with our dogs & he tells me that they stopped by a neighbor where a dog friend lives so he took some pictures of them playing. Three dogs & not one picture with a dog in it. Great yard shots though! Thanks for the chuckle.
This cartoon series is different from others - you can watch it being "drawn" on the front page - here and they love to have folks submit their own dog photos as subjects for a cartoon. Info on where to send them is on their site.

Shutter lag is not a problem if you have a DSLR, but if you have a compact camera, be sure to use the "half-press" technique to aim your camera at your chosen subject(s), press to the half-way point to enable the camera to auto-focus and determine proper exposure, then keep your finger on the shutter while you re-compose for the best composition and then press the shutter the rest of the way to fire - there will be much less delay with this method, and you should be able to see the dogs playing in the yard instead of just the grass.

I love goats!! Even their butts are cute, so just tell people that's what you aimed for!
