I noticed a few people are wondering how to get better digital pix, or how to buy a new digital camera to get better digital pix. I'll offer my humble advice on this:
1. Current Camera: See if you can adjust the camera's F-stop. My old digital camera had a way that you could mimic an F-stop increase. Just like a traditional film camera, the hgher the F-stop, the quicker the "shutter" snapped the picture. Typically, action shots should be taken with an 800 speed F-stop or higher.
2. New Camera: Almost every camera out there now comes with some form of image mobilization or a "sports" option which captures motion pictures prety well ... and you don't have to mortgage the house for this feature. If you are REALLY into spending some $$$ you can get a digital SLR ... this is what professionals now use.
I just bought my new Panasonic in January and it was less than $250 (Canadian). IMHO, you can skip the 10MegaPixel cameras, and get a 5 MegaPixel with more features for a lot less. 5MP cameras will give you really excellent prints up to a 5 by 7 and good print up to an 8 by 10. If you're like me and you don't print any thing other than 4 by 6 this is MORE than sifficient.
Hope this helps!
