G9 etc - tricks for fastest shutter response?

I'm trying to work out the combination of settings on my G9 that will give me the shortest time between when I press the shutter and when the camera catches the image. I have to say that the manual is the ONLY thing about the camera that I'm really unhappy about - it spreads relevant info all over the place because of its assumptions about users. (Seems to assume the most relevant way to organize data is to present the most basic stuff first, then present the more complex controls in later chapters, so related material is sometimes in three different places. I sooooooo want to re-edit that manual...)

I'm fine with there being some lag, but I'm sure I'm nowhere near what the camera is capable of using my current setting experiments.

What do you do to shorten up that time between press and catch?

Thanks.
