If you don't care about having a RAW mode, you may want to look at this camera as well. Key features include image stabilizer and 12x optical zoom. I've seen some excellent images produced by this camera:Canon Powershot S3
That's the one I'm getting next. The Powershot S3. Depends on what you're looking for in a digital, but I've owned 2 Canon powershots in the past and wouldn't own anything else. I still have people comment on my photos and they are from a 3.2MP camera. I did some research on the S3 and it's exactly what I want. Price not too bad, 6MP (plenty!), 12X optical
As for blurry action shots. What I do typically is put the camera setting on the continuous photo mode instead of messing with the shutter speed. that way one click and the camera continues to take a series of pics until you let go of the button. I find that easiest for kits, or my kids sports games. A lot of them are still blurry, but because the camera's taking continuous shots, you almost always get at least 1 or 2 that are crystal clear and then I just delete the rest.
The Powershot S3 is gonna be my present to me!
I never buy anything for myself ever - so I figure it's time to treat myself!
