shutter delay - Photography

People are saying that the DSLR do not exhibit this time delay. Are they manual focus or how do they ahive the lack of dealy? Also, why does the sreen black out for a second after a flash shot?

    They have the same delay as any autofocus SLR camera. Yes, prefocus is
    still a good idea as it would be even on a manual focus camera to catch
    action.

    But with the right lens (Nikon AFS series for instance) focus times are
    VERY fast and if you have the prefocus done the shutter delay is the
    same as a film SLR.

    All I can say is that I get pictures (like the jump shots I posted)
    consistently and reliably.

    I could not get those with my CP5000. I love my D100.

    The shutter release LAG times of the the Pentax Optio S are very good:
    - Using Viewfinder <0.1 sec.
    - Using LCD Monitor: 0.1 sec.
