    Hi all! this is my 1st post on this forum so i hope you can help me out!

    I currently have a Fuji S3000, and have taken only a handful of decent shots, i'm not sure if it is the camera, me or another reason! But i have decided to spend some money :eek:

    I went to Disneyland Paris in October and got some VERY dissappointing results, only a couple turned out any good.
    I have the luck of going again at the beginning of march, and this time i want to make up for my mistakes!

    I have to now decide whether to spend money on a new camera, or accessories and bits for my S3000.
    However i really am not sure what camera or parts to buy, i am quite a novice amateur, but i realyl want to get involved in photography i just need some help "kickstarting" things to get me off the ground.
    My budget is probably around £300-£400 (at most).

    I forgot to mention, high optical zoom is a must for me, and i want a minimum of 4Mp, i have 3 MP atm, but feel more will make a large difference. Also i would like a camera which has full manual mode, or at least nearing it so i can learn progressively as i get more and more into photography. But an Auto mode is still a must.

    Any help will be useful!
    Thanks

    I'm guessing that your photos are either blurred, under or over exposed, or out of focus

    The sports mode will set a fast shutter speed, for a decent night shot you want slow speeds for which you may need a tripod to reduce blurring (depends on how long the shutter is open for)
