Bought a Powershot SX10IS to shoot my son's football games. Also will do Basketball later and just everyday stuff nothing fancy as I am quite a novice. Just wanted clear action shots. Problems seems to be that of course its at night... lighted field.... and the action itself. Zooming in that far from the stands isnt a problem. At first i just used the Auto and Sports settings. Not so great mostly blurred on action and grainy on most things. Called Canon for ideas and they had me experiment with the manual settings ISO, F, and aper. couldnt seem to find a happy medium still blurry and graing most of the time. Im sure Im not setting things up optimally but wondering if a real SLR camera would makes things easier?? Like Nikon D5000, D60 or Sony Alphas, Canon Eos???? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Would like to keep the cost under $900 at most. Preferably down around $600 to $700. Also a have a Nikon 35mm N75 with an Extra Zoom lens AF 300 zoom lens. Not sure if its compatible with any of the digitals??
