    Default New Camera or current one?

    Hello, first post here so I'm not sure if this is the proper location or forum but it seemed it would fit best here.

    So I was elected the Historian for my High School band, and my job is to take pictures to use for a slideshow that I show at the end of the year. I currently have a Canon PowerShot A480 10 MP camera, (quite a weak and old camera) and I'm wondering if a camera like that would be suitable to what I'm trying to do. Most of the photography I do will be at football games with the only light being the stadium lights, and if it works for those shots I would hope it would work for when I need it during the day as well. I don't want to go broke buying a camera but I do have some cash to spend and would be willing to spend no more than 200. The camera I've been looking at is the PowerShot SX150 IS but I'm not as well versed in cameras as some of the people here may be.

    Thanks in advance!

    For a point and shoot with good low light shooting look for one with a CMOS sensor. Some possibilities with a CMOS sensor, long zoom lens and a price of $200 or less are the Canon Elph 530HS, Canon Elph 330HS and the Nikon S6500,

    It has a nice long zoom lens (12x) but it does not use a CMOS sensor (it uses a CCD sensor), it runs on 2AA batteries and is very slow. I don't recommend it, especially since you can have one of the 3 cameras I mentioned above for only a little more.
    My Gear:
    Panasonic FZ28
    Canon Elph 110 HS
    Canon A720IS (retired)
