Sanyo is touting two features of the Sanyo S6 particularly strongly. One is the a fourth-generation LSI said to offer better image quality, and the other is a rather unusual shutter button. Where most cameras focus the scene with a half-press of the shutter button, and capture the image with a full-press, the Sanyo's button offers only a full-press position to capture the picture. Instead of a half-press, the button itself is touch-sensitive, and the camera focuses immediately that the tip of your finger touches the shutter button. The press release also mentions camera speed, with a 2.4 second startup time, prefocused shutter lag of 0.05 seconds, 2.25 frames per second burst mode, and 0.8 seconds to switch to playback mode.
