Hi Guys, I am new on here and at the moment I'm really looking for some advice on what type of camera/equipment I would need for taking sports actiobn shots (namely football). I should say that I am fairly new to digital photography, (I am more used to 35mm). I did purchase an Olympus Camedia Digital Camera( with 10x zoom) about 14 months ago but because of the time lag (something the guy in Jessops didnt mention at the time !) after pressing the shutter release the results have been less than stisfactory. I have been looking at the Nikon Coolpix 8700 plus a telephoto converter; but before I purchase anything I thought I would ask someone who is more familiar and knowledgeable about digital equipment. I am open to suggestions / recommendations and at present would have about £500 to spend (less if possible). So, ideas please?
